What We Think

The Meinl Byzance Big Apple hi-hats capture the essence of raw and earthy tones with a dynamic range. Like the rest of the Byzance line, the Big Apple hats are hand-hammered from a cast B20 bronze which creates the mystique and complexities of these low-mass beauties. The lessened weight gives these cymbals a dark and musical voicing while not feeling overly big on the stand. The Meinl Byzance Big Apple Dark hi-hats bring the craftmanship of many generations into a delightful synergy worthy of the player's needs of today.

Manufacturer's Description from Meinl

The 15" Meinl Byzance Big Apple Dark Hi-Hats feature a smaller bell and thinner top and bottom cymbals than the other Byzance Dark series hihats. This unique combination of features along with the fully unlathed surface produces a warm, smooth tonality balanced with dark articulation.

About Manufacturer


Only MEINL uses 6 different alloys for crafting cymbals, which is more than any other cymbal maker is using today. Because of that, we are able to offer the widest selection of basic cymbal sound characteristics available. Striving for the realization of any possible sound idea makes it necessary to have this diversity, the background in and knowledge of all those different materials.

Constantly trained and highly qualified employees master all challenges within our production team. Most of them are drummers themselves! And if someone is not and starts working for us, we pay for the drum lessons. They know why they are doing what they do, and don’t consider it just another 9 to 5 job. It’s that dedication which makes the difference you can hear!
