Default My new Meinls and kit

Just got them yesterday... and they sound great. The K custom i have there doesnt match up to them!

They are:

10" Meinl Byzance Splash Brilliant
16" Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Brilliant
18" Meinl Byzance Medium Crash Brilliant

My other cymbals are:

14" K hats
14" K Custom Fast Crash
21" A Custom Ping Ride






















Thanks and let me know what you think.

How do you like the 10" splash? How do you like the 16" & 18" Byzance crashes together? I recently picked up the exact 18" medium crash and was thinking of replacing my 16" Zildjian thin, with a Byzance med thin or medium. Looks like you've got a nice set-up going.

Superb! Amazing! I cant tell you how much I dig your setup.. Just perfect! How does the ping ride cut through the meinls? A coustom ping rides can be pretty noisy if you doesnt play them "right".. anyway, nice kit and awsome cymbal section.

I like it and i also got ir for free which was a plus.

I love the 16" crash its awsome... And the 14" k custom goes well with it.. although i would rather have a 15" or 16"

the ping ride is a little loud and it gets the job done. I am looking for another ride though. Maybe meinls or ks... dont know yet..

and thanks, it took me while to be able to replace my other cymbals but tottaly worth it

Great additions!!

Muhahaha, Meinl is going over to own the universum...muhaha, finally.

No in all seriousness: You chose some excellent cymbals there, I think the Byzance line is one of their highlights in the current catalog.

Ooh, buying multiple cymbals at once is fun. They really glow under the stage lights, looks like the brilliant finish was a good idea. I have to admit that Meinl cymbals looks awful sexy, especially yours.

I'm running an older 22" K Custom ride that sounds really good with the Byzance.

I like it a lot, but due to the meinls weights and sizes, it doesnt stand out as much as the others... its still is an awsome cymbal, and i deffinetly will not take it out of my set up..

Good to see another Zildjian/Meinl player around these parts!

I think Meinl makes some of the best special-effects cymbals ever produced (Filter Chinas, Bells, Splashes, Stacks etc) and I think they mix perfectly with my A Custom Crashes (thin and medium)

So, there's that! Nice Cymbals.

I play for two very different style bands... but the main band plays sort of indie rock punk, but i do play other styles with another group.
