Thin edges for fast response and a raw bell for quick decay
Introducing Polyphonic Crashes in our Byzance Traditional line
Adding an 18", 19", and 20" Polyphonic Crash to our Byzance Traditional series contributes to the success of Polyphonic cymbals. These expressively dark sounding crashes with thin edges project quickly. The thicker, unlathed bell offers another sonic voice with penetrating attack and volume.
Great for Rock, Pop, Fusion, Funk, and other styles where an explosive blast and a quick decay are crucial.
Unique mix of raw, brilliant, and traditional finish in one cymbal.
Introducing the new 18" Byzance Dual Trash China
Our Byzance Dual Chinas are already popular for their explosiveness and trashy tonality. By adding holes throughout this new china, the response is much faster and offers mure cut.
The sustain is also shorter, giving you a cymbal that reacts quickly, then gets out of the way so that the other cymbals on your kit can be heard.
Great for Gospel, Pop, Funk, R&B, and in the studio.
The Temporal Stack I is made up from an 8" Byzance Splash over a 10" Byzance Splash, and is the lower pitched of the two stacks. The higher pitched Temporal Stack II consists of a 10" Byzance Trash China over a 10" Byzance Splash.
Introducing the new Matt Garstka 8" Temporal Stack I & 10" Temporal Stack II
Together with Meinl artist Matt Garstka, we developed two new Artist Concept Model Stacks: The Temporal I, and Temporal II Stacks.
"I mainly use the Temporal Stacks within complex groove and chop patterns. Their dry, trashy, staccato sound allows them to get in and out of tight spaces quickly. The stacks can absolutely be used as timekeepers, but the fun lies in orchestrating these into rhythmic patterns which will for sure open up a lot of creativity."
- Matt Garstka
Introducing the new Luke Holland 10"/12" Baby Stack
Baby Stack is the name of our new Luke Holland Artist Concept Model, which is made from a 10" Byzance Trash Splash over a 12" Classics Custom Trash Splash. This stack has huge potential and is very versatile in many musical situations.
"My goal with the Baby Stack was to create a combo that I could use in any setting from metal to electronic to hip-hop. The beauty is its ability to cut through tremendously or sit back and be casually articulate. It's incredibly dynamic, and that’s why I will always use it in every show, recording, or video I do."
- Luke Holland
Introducing the 6" Benny Greb Crasher Hats
In addition to the 8" version, this extremely popular Artist Concept Model is now available in 6" too. Its sound is very sensitive, trashy, mellow, and is an excellent addition to any setup. The character is that of a fine, high-pitched hihat, with a little more spread than you would normally get from a shaker.
"I wanted something that was super short, dry, clear and high frequency but still very dynamic that could fulfill a whispering shaker-like role in the music. Tough to get! So we had to create something completely unique. Four separate cymbals sandwiched together. They have different shoulders so they collapse against each other at every hit. The result is incredible. A very unique sound that blends beautifully with ghost notes and other subdivisions, but can also make a percussive statement. They are part of my sound, I absolutely love them!"
- Benny Greb
In addition to the 18", 20", and 22" sizes, a 19" Byzance Extra Thin Hammered crash is now available and a great addition to the line.
This exceptional and extreme light weight crash features extensive hammer patterns which result in a dark, trashy sound with a wide spread and a long sustain.
New also for Benny Greb’s signature Byzance Sand Series: In addition to the 18" Byzance Vintage Sand Medium- and Thin crashes, a new size, 20" Sand Thin Crash, is now available.
It gives those warm and musical sounding crashes a new tone and nuance.
Our Pure Alloy series has seen some additions with the introduction of a 17" medium crash, and a new pre-configured cymbal set consisting of a 14" medium hihat, 16" crash, and 20" ride.
Pure Alloy cymbals have a shimmering, smooth sound and cut through with agility. Their full range of tonality and dynamic capabilities make these perfect for styles like Rock, Pop, Fusion, R&B Reggae as well as in the studio.
Four new crashes have been added to the Pure Alloy Custom series:
- 17" Medium Thin Crash
- 16" Medium Crash
- 18" Medium Crash
- 18" Medium Heavy Crash
Available now also is a pre-packaged cymbal set consisting of a 14" medium thin hihat, 18" medium thin crash, and 20" medium thin ride.
The inclusion of these new sounds will benefit drummers looking for more sound possibilities in the Pure Alloy Custom series.
