15" cast bronze hi-hats with deep hand hammering and an unlathed surface for dark, mellow tone

Meinl Byzance Big Apple Dark hi-hats are hand hammered and completely unlathed, exposing the raw B20 bronze with an oven-blackened look. Made as an homage to the small clubs of NYC bebop, these hats are crafted for texture, nuance and complexity, making them ideal for jazz or low-volume settings. In intimate venues, they provide clarity and cut while staying mellow enough for listeners to appreciate the dark tone. For the player, the thin profile and lighter weight gives these cymbals a mellow, elastic feel. Like all Byzance Dark cymbals, this pair is made in Turkey from cast B20 bronze and hand hammered into shape by skilled Turkish cymbal smiths.
