A hand-hammered light ride that showcases Meinl's highest level of craftsmanship with an unbelievably versatile and rich sound.

The Byzance Foundry Reserve Light rides are very versatile cymbals featuring a dry stick-attack note followed by a complex character carried along in a dark wash. Starting with the extensive hand-hammering, the cymbalsmith forms the low fundamental pitch and builds up to a rich character. The fully lathed surface gives the stick definition a bright attack followed by a lush wash of undertones. They provide enough body for a strong stick definition to drive a band, but are thin enough to open for thunderous crashes too. The light rides respond easily to mallets too.
