Manufacturer's Description

The Meinl B22BADTR features an expressive voice that is well-balanced with loads of responsiveness. Its small bell and steep bow combined with an unlathed top create a “woody” stick definition. The fully lathed bottom allows the cymbal to open easily for lush crashes while providing a warm bed of undertones.

Hand-hammered and completely unlathed, Byzance Dark cymbals immediately hit the sweet spot with crashes that open up just enough, then get out of the way. The hihats and rides provide clarity, cut and volume, along with a prominent dark tone brought out by their unique surfaces.

Made in Turkey from B20 bronze and hand-hammered into shape. The surfaces here are left unlathed creating the dark finish except for the Spectrum Hihats and Ride which are partially lathed in a spiral pattern.
