Meinl Byzance Custom Studio Cymbal Pack Review

Get this Meinl cymbal set here:

Studio owners – if you’re looking to upgrade your recordings in a big way, check out this exclusive cymbal bundle from Sweetwater. Meinl let us assemble our dream team across their six Byzance lines, and this package is what we came up with. You get hi-hats that are crisp and controlled, crash cymbals that melt into a mix, and a ride cymbal that’s the perfect blend of dry, pingy, and washy – especially under a mic. Not only is each cymbal in this Meinl Byzance set a blue ribbon winner on its own, but we chose each piece because of how it interacts with the others. We’re also throwing in a free Byzance Trash Crash and some fun accessories to liven up your recordings.

Andy Ham says:

Does anybody else think these Yamaha kits totally ripped off the old Tama superstar lugs goin all the way through and connecting from top to bottom ? The Tama superstar hyperdrives and the older superstar customs definitly look the same and gets me confused cause I immediately think superstar when I see these kind of lugs and design. The new Tama superstar classics doesn’t have the rod connecting the bottom and top lugs anymore but the older superstars and the superstar hyerdrives look very very similar.

Nice cymbals but not cheap..

andast says:

Cymbals and drums sound excellent… but…with a Master at the helm, all the tones, the fullness, the rhythm and depth come alive. Great job!

Chris Campbell says:
