The NEW Byzance Foundry Reserve collection is a limited selection of cymbals that showcases the stunning, sonically rich works of art that our cymbalsmiths create with layers of tonality and nuance; however, that is only half oft he beauty, as they are visually striking from the one-of-a-kind hand hand-hammered marks. The extra hammering creates many deep craters across the surface. When this hammering is coupled with the fully lathed top and bottom, it produces a clear, dry stick-attack note over a lush bed of low undertones ¬ñ otherwise known as ¬ìthe roar.¬ì The Byzance Foundry Reserve hihats feature a thin top over a medium-thin bottom. This weight combination produces a versatile hihat that works both in the studio and on stage for many situations, especially where touch and nuance are required. The stick response is warm, fat, and has a nice sizzle when slightly opened. The foot chick is strong and well-balanced with full tonality. Great for a wide variety of gigs.
