Byzance Brilliant cymbals are hand hammered into shape by Meinl cymbal artisans in Turkey using B20 bronze alloy. Brilliant cymbals are polished up to six times to high gloss finish. These cymbals captivate with their reflective surfaces and dark, rich sound from the B20 bronze alloy. The 18-in. Heavy Hammered China has an intense, explosive sound with an aggressive and brash attack. The heavy hand hammering gives the cymbals a dark character. Great for riding, accenting and effects.
