Old-school Jazz Style and Swagger
It doesn't get more jazzy than New York City, and this Meinl 22" Byzance Dark Big Apple Dark Ride is the perfect celebration of the cool and complex sound at the heart of one of America's finest musical traditions. Dark and deliciously musical, this ride takes advantage of its low mass to cut down on the sustain, so you can articulate notes right on top of each other and never lose a bit of detail. Speaking of details, there are plenty of jazzers here at Sweetwater who couldn't help but notice the sweet bell sound or the pearly clarity of the Byzance Dark Big Apple Dark Ride's ping. If you want a ride that can swing with the best of them, this is it!
