What We Think

The Meinl Byzance Transition Ride is a hybrid cymbal with complexities galore. For players that want a ride cymbal with dark rich sounds and crashability, look no further. The hammered top allows for great control as well as articulation. The Transition Ride also has a larger bell that is smoother and not too piercing. The bottom of the cymbal has a tight lathing pattern helping with the smooth, dark crashability and is buffed to a brilliant finish. This cymbal weighs in at 2359 grams and speaks well at medium and dynamic volumes.


Manufacturer's Description from Meinl

Perfect transition from articulate sticking to wide open crashing while never loosing the stick definition. Clear sticking and a present, but not overpowering, bell. Outstanding versatile ride cymbal.

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!
