The Byzance Foundry Reserve collection is a limited selection of cymbals that showcases the stunning, sonically rich works of art that Meinl's 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-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 Rides are very versatile cymbals featuring a dry stick attack note followed by a complex character carried along in a dark wash. Starting with the extensive hand-hammering, the cymbalsmith forms the low fundamental pitch building up to a rich character. The fully lathed surface gives the stick definition a bright attack followed by that lush wash of undertones. They provide enough body for a strong stick defintion to drive a band, but are thin enough to open for thunderous crashes too. The light rides also responds easily to mallets.

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.
