The 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 of the 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 – otherwise known as "the roar."

The Byzance Foundry Reserve crash is unique when compared to our other 18" Byzance crashes. It features a very dark and explosive response that quickly decays and, additionally, it can be used as a light ride cymbal for drummers looking to maximize a minimal cymbal set. This comes from the combination of extensive hand-hammering in addition to the fully lathed surface. The medium weight gives the crash a full-bodied sound at its apex.

Each cymbal is individually packaged in a special designed cymbal box and includes a pair of Meinl Stick & Brush Standard 5A drumsticks as well as a pair of 100% cotton cymbal gloves. These cymbals are unlacquered which means they will naturally age over time. However, if you prefer to keep your cymbals clean and free from finger prints, you will appreciate the gloves when you handle your cymbals. Also, included with each cymbal is a letter from Mr. Reinhold Meinl about this special line of cymbals, and a Certificate of Authenticity.
