Byzance Foundry Reserve 19” Crash
Created at Meinl’s Byzance cymbal foundry in Turkey and tested in Germany, the Byzance Foundry Reserve collection is a limited selection of cymbals that showcases the stunning, sonically rich works of art that Meinl cymbalsmiths create with layers of tonality and nuance; however, that is only half of the beauty, as they are visually striking from the one-of-a-kind hand-hammered marks. The extra hammering creates many deep craters across the surface. When this hammering is coupled with the fully lathed top and bottom, it produces a clear, dry stick-attack note over a lush bed of low undertones – otherwise known as “the roar.”
The centuries old process with meticulous quality control:
Cast in Turkey from B20 bronze alloy mixture of 80% copper and 20% tin
Hammered by a cymbalsmith several thousand times using only a hammer and anvil
Lathed the old way, with the cymbalsmith applying pressure only by hand
Tested in Germany according to the most rigorous standards
