Meinl Byzance Dark Sky Ride

This Meinl Byzance Dark Sky Ride is a special 19" version of the standard Byzance Dark Ride. The smaller size gives it a more lively stick response while the unlathed finish and hammering pattern allow it to retain the same dark sound characteristics as its family members. 

As with all Meinl Byzance Cymbals, this Dark Sky Ride is hand hammered and crafted by Meinl's veteran cymbal makers in Turkey, the historical home of cymbal making. The result is an ear tuned cymbal with a fantastic sound.
  • Made from B20 Bronze Alloy
  • Hand hammered for a unique sound
  • Unlathed surface for a dark sound

Meinl Byzance Dark cymbals are not lathed and have their original appearance and sound characteristic. They are distinguished by an earthy sound with a fairly short sustain.

This Sky Ride is a uniquely sized ride that features the same dark sound as the 20" dark ride, but with a higher pitch and faster response.

Available only in 19" size.
