Drummers – God love ’em. They are just about the only sentient beings on Earth who think “trashy” is a pleasing adjective, at least when it comes to describing the sound of cymbals. Those crafty craftsmen at Meinl understand this all too well, and have introduced the brand new 16" and 18" Trash Crashes in the Byzance Vintage Series for drummers who want to split the difference between a crash and a China.
Individually cast and forged in the company’s Turkish facility, these B20 bronze cymbals feature a sandblasted surface that is applied in the company’s German factory, and are cut with strategic vents that help control responsiveness. The net result is a very trashy, white noise attack that is perfect for quick accents and punctuations in medium to low volume settings.
