Meinl Byzance Vintage 18" Pure Trash Crash
Crafted with age in mind, the Vintage voice within Byzance has unique features that simulate the aging process of a cymbal to couple relic sounds with modern appeal. The Vintage line was born from the Sand Ride, a flagship cymbal developed with Meinl Cymbals artist, Benny Greb; now, it includes a wide array of cymbals which have helped to define the Meinl sound. Made in Turkey from B20 bronze and hand-hammered into shape. Sand models feature narrow blade lathing and a sandblasted finish, whereas Vintage Pure models are unlathed and raw.
A completely unique look and sound is found in this instrument. It starts with hand-hammering and undergoes several steps until the holes are added. The result is cymbal that quickly speaks with a trashy, white-noise burst followed by fast, dry decay. Great for accents and stacking.
