Great for live sound
LabreyLabrey, 09.07.2017
I bought a few Meinl Byzance cymbals because I was attracted to their crisp sound and fast decay. At first I was a bit dubious about their dry/darkness because I play in a rock band and thought i'd miss the brightness, however they cut in the mix and sound great in both the studio and in a live situation. If you want a full-bodied sound which makes the point without ruining the balance with washy cymbal sounds, I definitely recommend this cymbal!

It's awesome
Janis P, 26.06.2017
This cymbal is great in every aspect.

It's really thin so it opens up immediately and you can play it with hands quite good too.

The sound: it still sounds like a crash cymbal but has trashy china-like quality to it. The bell sound isn't too loud and articulate and it's not quite usable as a ride cymbal too as it's more an accent/effect cymbal.

It looks really vintage like its been played for years. This ads up to the uniqueness of the sound.

It works really well in different genres of playing (rock, metal, jazz, etc.)

Perfect
Kristaps N., 06.12.2016
I love my Extra dry thin crash. I had the 18'' model and now the 19'' one. The sound is so unique but exactly what i wanted. And so good looking.

Sehr einzigartiges Becken
Lukas Falk, 17.06.2019
Die Extra Dry Serie von Meinl ist aus dem Setup aktueller Drummer nicht mehr wegzudenken, daher kommt man nicht darum sich selbst mit dem Klang der Extra Dry Serie zu beschäftigen. Gerade die Crashbecken klingen doch sehr unterschiedlich im Vergleich zu "Standartbecken".

Ich habe die Serie direkt bei Thomann angetestet und muss sagen der Klang dieser Becken ist einfach einzigartig und wird von keinem anderen Hersteller so auf dem Markt angeboten. Im direkten Vergleich mit der oft verwendeten 18" Variante empfinde ich die 19" Variante noch ein wenig graziler in der Artikulation. Gewichtsmäßig liegen trotz des 1 Zoll größeren Durchmessers nur wenige Gramm zwischen diesen beiden, d.h. die 19"-Version ist noch ein Stück dünner als die 18" Version, das kommt meiner Spielweise sehr entgegen.

Ich setze die Becken hauptsächlich im Bandkontext ein, dabei spielen wir eine Mischung aus Pop, Rock und Funk wofür sich das Crash m.M.n. wunderbar eignet. Es hat einen unglaublich tiefes Rauschen und dennoch China-Ähnliche Höhenanteile. Durch das geringe Gewicht schwingt es aber bereits nach wenigen Sekunden vollständig aus und ist kaum noch hörbar, wunderbar also für kurze Einsätze. Außerdem verwende ich es zum "Durchcrashen", wobei das einen falschen Eindruck erweckt. Beim Durchcrashen entsteht bei diesem Becken keine Metal-Hookline, sondern ein rauschender Teppich, bei dem dennoch die einzelnen Anschläge sehr differenziert zu hören sind, sehr gut geeignet um Soundlücken zu füllen.

Wie schon erwähnt ist dieses Becken vom Klangcharakter etwas ganz anderes als ein "normales" Crashbecken. Allein der Klang wäre die 5 Sterne wert. Wie bereits erwähnt ist es extrem vielseitig aufgrund seiner kurzen Ausschwingdauer.

Das bringt mich auch schon zum einzigen Kritikpunkt: Gerade im Freien kann das Becken (von der Lautstärke) doch schnell untergehen, wenn es nicht vernüftig abgenommen ist.

Alles in allem jedoch ein wunderbares Becken, das (tatsächlich) einmal seinen Preis wert ist und mich hoffentlich noch viele Jahre begleiten wird.
