The low, dark and somewhat dry washy sound of these models - most of which have a matte sandblasted finish - isn't too soft or too loud. With its great stick definition and short sustain, you can dig into Byzance Vintage for total control at all times. It has a sound that fits into any music that isn't in the upper decibel levels.
About the Pure Light Ride
The lighter version of the Vintage Pure Ride comes up with an outstanding dry stick response with hints of trash and darkness underneath. They have a distinctive raw and earthy look. Byzance Vintage Pure cymbals are created by a process in which the metal becomes very flexible. While this character gives them a unique response, slight deformations may occur at the cymbals edge. Such changes are within the accepted standards of this cymbal and will not affect the sound. Therefore, slight deformations at the edge are not covered by the warranty.
