Though ‘Brilliant’ refers to its finish, this series actually takes the traditional Byzance and darkens its sound. This darker sound is due to a finishing process that limits the high end as the cymbal is buffed to its brilliant look. Heavier models penetrate with directness, thinner ones shimmer with warmth. The overall combination of dark tonality and warm spread make Byzance Brilliant a great choice for everything from funk and fusion to rock.
Hand hammered from B20 bronze in Meinl's own Turkish cymbal factory, it combines an Extra Dry cymbal and a Brilliant finished cymbal in one hihat. Depending on the player's sonic preference, each cymbal can be used either on the bottom or on the top. This makes the 14" Serpents Hihat a very versatile instrument that fits every musical situation.
