Although they appear to be raw, Byzance Extra Dry cymbals are extremely refined. Designed to be dry, fast, trashy, and low, this is one of the most intriguing voices within Byzance that attracts many drummers.

The crashes, splashes, and china cymbals all explode and unleash a gritty texture from within, while the hihats and rides are crisp in definition. Made in Turkey from B20 bronze, hand-hammered into shape, and raw finish. The bottom side of hihats, crashes, splashes and chinas are lathed, but the rides are left unlathed except for the transition Ride which is lathed and polished on the bottom to a brilliant finish.
