Meinl Cymbal Byzance Extra Dry Dual Crash Cymbal - 18"

I got this cymbal and I LOVE it!. I dig crash/rides to begin with. Its real dry and so crisp sounding - a great addition to my collection.

The best!!

This is the best sounding cymbal on the market and this is my fourth purchase. Very explosive and it has the ability to give you the correct dynamics to any style of music you're playing. I love it!!

Really nice

This is a really nice versatile crash. It is explosive, with a short sustain, bright enough to cut through but the dryness keeps it from being overpowering. The short sustain makes it very good for crash-riding as it doesn't drown you in wash. It's not super loud, so it may not the best choice for metal, but I think it would work well in most rock, pop, electro, and fusion settings. In terms of appearance, it's really cool looking. My current setup is a mix of raw and brilliant finishes and this crash, and the matching 10" splash, ties everything together visually. Sweetwater service was great as usual.
