For angry, loud and aggressive accents, you will benefit from a China that is equipped for this task. Some specimens are too large and bulky, others sound too sweet and too thin. The Meinl Byzance B18CH is a traditionally manufactured China that offers a very balanced fray and acidic sound. This cymbal has been knocked into shape manually and made of the extremely solid B20 bronze alloy, with 80% copper and 20% tin. You can rely on years of soundfastness.
Meinl Byzance B18CH
Play safe and use hearing protection: this China is loud. The 18-inch format brings a load-bearing, trashy root note. This pelvis makes a good impression, but does not have so much body that the mix becomes saturated. The attack is as it should be with such an accent pelvis: aggressive and “sour.” The sound distribution is complex and the pelvis has a considerable sustain. Enjoy the rich, savage nature of this professional China.
