What We Think

The Meinl Byzance Jazz line appeals to the lighter side of their catalog. The touch and tone of these cymbals are soft, buttery with low and dark tonalities. Hammering patterns on some models are large and deep dimpling that boosts dryness and darkness. The lathing patterns vary from a wide blade pattern to a tight lathing giving a nice range of dynamic sounds for discerning players.

Manufacturer's Description from Meinl

The warm darkness of traditional hand hammered cymbals is re-imagined with Byzance. Each range is hand crafted by MEINL artisans at our foundry in Turkey, then given sound-enhancing final touches by our craftsmen in Germany. Six different ranges offer a choice of feels and sounds for virtually every style of music. Best of all, with Byzance your sound is all yours, because every Byzance cymbal is a one-of-a-kind.

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!
