What We Think

The Sand Cymbals are a collaboration between Meinl and Benny Greb to create a unique sound for Benny. The Sand Cymbals are part of Meinl's Byzance Vintage series and were designed to Benny's specifications.

This matched set contains a pair of 14" Sand hats, a 20" Sand ride and an 18" Sand Thin Crash. Each cymbal goes through a sandblasting process creates a semi-matte finish that is similar to a patina. The tight lathing patterns give the cymbals a little focus while the selective hammering gives each a cymbal a bit of complexity. These are highly musical cymbals that complement each other as a set. 

If you are looking for warmth and full-bodied sounds out of your cymbals but without the modern highs, the Meinl Sand Cymbals should be on your radar. 

Manufacturer's Description from Meinl

The Meinl Byzance Vintage Sand Cymbal Set is a new addition to the Byzance lineup. This matched set includes a 14” Sand Hat, 18” Sand Thin Crash and a 20” Sand Ride. This set is the perfect introduction to the world of Byzance Vintage sounds and is a must have for all fans of Benny Greb’s drum sound and for fans of musical cymbals in general.

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!
