New Meinl Cymbals 2022!

It’s that time of year again where we get a look at the new gear arriving for the new year. Meinl is kicking things off with expanding select lines within their Byzance range, along with new Pure Alloy/Pure Alloy Custom and Artist Concept additions, rounding out with some pretty nifty little trinkets.

Meinl Byzance 2022

Byzance Traditional Series Polyphonic Crashes

Meinl has taken their incredibly popular Byzance Traditional 21in Polyphonic Ride and launched some new crash cymbal brethren to expand the line! Now available within the Polyphonic range is an 18in Polyphonic Crash, a 19in Polyphonic Crash and a 20in Polyphonic Crash.

Just like the cymbal that birthed the Polyphonic range, these crashes share the thin edges and thicker, unlatched bells of their predecessor. They offer quick, explosive projection and quickly disperse into a softer, yet intense roar. The unlathed bell creates a powerful, penetrating attack when struck and allow the line to reach peak volume. Not for the faint of heart, or ears.

To complement another best-selling sub-genre of Byzance Traditional, Meinl now offers a 19in Extra Thin Hammered Crash to bridge the gap between the 18in & 20in versions currently available. They made for a huge sonic impact, with an intense burst of attack that slowly dissipates into a shallow low rumble, sure to add some dynamic expression to any situation

Meinl Byzance Dual 18” Trash China by Meinl Cymbals

Since the conception of the Byzance Dual range, players have been screaming out for a China cymbal within the range that offers more response, shorter sustain and quick, decay. Well, Meinl listened and created the Byzance Dual 18in Trash China Cymbal!

Meinl Byzance Vintage 20” Benny Greb Sand Thin Crash

Meinl Artists Benny Greb has been back in the Meinl “Beats Laboratory” (working title) and created a new addition to his tremendously popular Sand series, part of the Byzance Vintage family. The 20in Sand Thin Crash overs a dark tone with short, trashy sustain – it’s modern, it’s big and it’s full of Benny G flavour!

Of course, that’s not all Benny cooked up with Meinl – he also had the help of some friends creating new toys for us all!

Artist Concept Models

To expand the Artist Concept line, Meinl has worked with some of the most exciting artists in the industry and together have concocted some new sounds for us to experiment with. Benny Greb brings us 6in Crasher Hats, previously only available as an 8in

Matt Garstka brings TWO concept models to the table – The 8/10in Temporal 1 Stack, 10/10in Temporal 2 stack
