Hand hammered in Turkey from cast B20 bronze alloy — an articulate ride with a soft and controlled wash, the Byzance 22” Jazz Club Ride combines a low tone from extensive hand hammering with a pearly, up front stick definition from its flat profile
Wolfgang Hafner signature — The Meinl Jazz Club Ride was developed with Wolfgang Hafner who was looking for a flat ride with soft articulation and layers of sizzling low overtones

Four brass rivets — for a light sizzle effect, four brass rivets are positioned across the cymbal for an even spread of definition, wash and sizzling sustain — the rivets deliver an especially great sound for low volume clubs

Medium thin weight — this medium thin weight ride provides a great middle ground between dry stick definition and a blossoming, soft sound and warm feel — great for going from blazing fast ride patterns on the top to light crashing toward the side
Refined warm sound — the clean, yet warm and dark tone of Byzance Jazz cymbals comes from a combination of their thin weight and extensively hand hammered B20 alloy — the surface is fully lathed to perfection to give them a smooth response

Not only for jazz players — their fully lathed surfaces and dark character are ideal for jazz, but these cymbals are at home in any style where effortless touch and complex tone are “must haves”

Modern versatility rooted in tradition — hand hammered into shape in Turkey using B20 bronze, Meinl Byzance cymbals are deeply rooted in traditional cymbal crafting methods, yet their old-world background is dialed-in to 21st century needs
