The Byzance Foundry
Reserve collection is a limited selection of cymbals created at our
Byzance cymbal foundry in Turkey. Inspired from the time when all
cymbals were handmade, these cymbals showcase the stunning, sonically
rich works of art that our cymbalsmiths create with layers of tonality
and nuance; however, that is only half of the beauty, as they are
visually striking from the one-of-a-kind hand hammered marks.

smith spends additional time hammering these cymbal blanks to develop a
more complex voice within the metal. The extra hammering creates many
deep craters across the surface. When this hammering is coupled with the
fully lathed top and bottom, the rides produce a clear, dry
stick-attack note over a lush bed of low undertones – otherwise known as
“the roar.” The hi-hats sizzle with warmth and clarity when played with
sticks or the foot, and the crash explodes with a dark fury not found
elsewhere in the Byzance family.

We intentionally left the top
surface free from large logos so that the natural beauty of the
hand-hammering artform can be appreciated. Each cymbal leaves the
factory packed in a specially designed box to protect the cymbal as it
travels from the factory to you.
