An Outstanding Selection for Hi-Hats


I know that sound appreciation is a very personal thing. You may think that a $500 pair of cymbals is the most amazing thing that you ever heard; whereas on the other hand I may think a $150 pair sounds better than the $500. It's only opinion. As far as these Meinl Dark Byzance are concerned, it is the sound that I've been looking for. They're amazing to me. I don't think anyone could go wrong owning a pair of these. It will be a while before I get another pair of cymbals.

Love these!


These are great hi hats that sound exactly how they're described. Nice projection without being overbearing, thanks to their dark tone. They also look amazing... people ask me about these every show. The only downside is, when I tried to record with them, the engineer suggested I use a different bottom hat to raise the pitch and make them cut through clearer. Popped a super heavy Z custom on the bottom and solved the problem.
