About Delivery

The Byzance Cymbal Foundry Reserve series has been designed to showcase the unparalleled sound and build quality that Meinl’s expert cymbalsmiths forge into every cymbal, every time. And the result is a breath-taking series of ultra-dry, musically complex and super-responsive cymbals. Employing a traditional hand-hammered technique, every single one of these B20 Bronze cymbals is worked up with painstaking care and immense attention to detail until they possess the right mixture of complex, dry and dark undertones required to pass Meinl’s top QC.

The 22” Foundry Reserve Light Ride is a thin and lightweight cymbal almost sizzling with a dry, hot sound. Unlike its thicker, heavier brother (the mediumweight 22” Foundry Reserve Ride) that offers a deeper, richer sound, this ride has more dynamic expression - light playing offers a tight, well-defined dry sound, but when opened up, this cymbal swells into a powerful, symphonic crash with tuneful, warm undertones and an explosive attack.

The Foundry Reserve Light Ride possesses a fully lathed playing surface that provides a solid dry wash with plenty of body - the perfect foundation for the unique hand-hammered, deep-pitted texture that gives these cymbals unmatched darkness and an ‘ashy’ quality. The extra-deep hammer strokes give this range a very distinctive look, but most importantly it is these calculated divots that create the intricate mixture of dry, smokey soundscapes and crisp, bright tones that these cymbals offer.

Every Meinl Byzance Foundry Reserve cymbal comes packaged in a handsome collector’s box that includes a typed letter from Reinhold Meinl, a pair of unlacquered cymbal handling gloves, and a set of Meinl Stick and Brush Standard drumsticks.

This is a ride with a deep, dark personality with a dramatic, dynamic and powerful attack in its arsenal - an unapologetically theatrical cymbal.
