The Byzance Cymbal range has been expanded to include the all new and powerful Foundry Reserve series - an exquisite selection of super-dry, musically complex and ultra-responsive cymbals that showcase the amazing sound and unmatched quality that Meinl and their elite craftsmen pour into every piece, time and time again.

Made in Turkey - the birthplace of the cymbal - each of these B20 Bronze cymbals is uniquely extra-hand-hammered and shaped with painstaking attention to detail until they sing with a lush mixture of complex, dry and dark undertones. The 22” Foundry Reserve Ride is a medium weight cymbal with a powerful, dark presence and low-pitched attack. Undertones are warm and smooth, whilst the attack is explosive and tight.

The playing surface has been fully lathed to perfection and provides a dry wash with plenty of body. This smooth playing surface has then been hand-hammered with the unique deep-pitted texture that gives these cymbals their dark, smoky character. The extra-deep hammer strokes across the playing surface are very eye-catching, but more importantly, they provide the intricate mixture of dry, smokey washes and dark, crisp ‘chicking’ that you won't find in any other cymbal.

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 ride is full of rich body and wields an attack so responsive and powerful it almost hits you back. The Meinl Foundry Reserve 22” Ride is a truly unique cymbal in looks, sound, and playing experience.
