Byzance vintage14" EQUILIBRIUM HIHAT


The Equilibrium hihat is all about that strong definition when you play them with the tip of the stick, plus a slushy, open bark sound. It's perfect for choppy hihat patterns and has the definition and articulation you need.

Byzance JAZZ18" Jazz Extra THIN CRASH


Matt's go-to crash for years, this cymbal works in any style. Its thinness gives it an insane open-up factor, great for cymbal swells and still has awesome articulation.

Byzance vintage20" EQUILIBRIUM CHINA


According to Matt, this china cymbal is the best on the market. It's got that classic china sound with just the right amount of trashiness, plus it's still articulate enough to cut through the mix.

Byzance vintage22" EQUILIBRIUM RIDE


Matt's signature Equilibrium ride cymbal is all about balance between the bell sound, the tip sound in the central part, and the crash sound towards the bow. Exactly what Matt needs for his drumming.
