Explore the Depths of Raw Ride Tone
The unrefined character of Meinl's 20" Byzance Extra Dry Medium Ride makes it one of the better jazz/funk/RNB cymbals Sweetwater drummers have gotten their hands on, and we really think that anyone looking for that highly defined, esoteric sound is going to love this one. You don't normally come across deliberately unlathed cymbals like this one, but if you're after a dry sound with a distinctly short sustain, then you could do no better. The low pitch and volume of this Byzance Extra Dry Medium Ride lend themselves particularly well to minimalist kits where it won't get lost, but the range of expression you can get out of it makes this cymbal a delightfully versatile instrument.
