The Meinl B20SAR Byzance 20" Benny Greb Signature Jazz Sand Ride Cymbal features a sandblasted top combined with a partially lathed bottom to produce an outstanding dry and fast stick sound with a very quick decay. The bell has a clear, bright and articulate voice. It has the beautiful light wash and stick sound of a thinner cymbal and the clear bell of a heavier cymbal. It has been aged through a special procedure where the surface of the cymbal is sandblasted to give more vintage warmth, dryness and a fantastic look. It has superhuman, modern abilities with that great vintage sound...unreal!
Yes, the warp in the sand ride is there on purpose. It's a crucial part of its sound. Benny Greb Signature Sand Ride Cymbals are made with a special lathing process. Since the sand ride is handmade, some cymbals have a more distinct warp, others less. Benny himself has given a guideline as to how much warp is acceptable for his cymbal. Benny's guideline has been applied to all sand rides Meinl has made so far.
