A hand-hammered crash that showcases Meinl's highest level of craftsmanship with an unbelievably versatile and rich sound.
The Byzance Foundry Reserve crash is unique when compared to Meinl's other 18" Byzance crashes. It features a very dark and explosive response that quickly decays and, additionally, can be used as a light ride cymbal for drummers looking to maximize a minimal cymbal set. This comes from the combination of extensive hand-hammering in addition to the fully lathed surface. The medium weight gives the crash a full-bodied sound at its apex.
