The Meinl Byzance Factory Reserve 15 inch Hi-Hats showcase the stunning craftsmanship of the Meinl Byzance factory thanks to their striking hand hammered aesthetic. Delivering versatile tone filled with sizzling warmth and airy precision, these modern hi-hats give a nod to the era of purely handmade cymbals.

Hand Hammered Hi-Hats

Part of the Byzance Foundry Reserve series launched at NAMM 2019, these 15 inch Mienl Hi-Hats were inspired by handmade cymbals of the past.

The Factory Reserve series features a limited selection of specially made cymbals that were painstakingly crafted in the Meinl Byzance factory in Turkey to deliver beautiful layers of tonality and nuance.

Perfectly showcasing the stunning artistry and craftsmanship of the Meinl cymbalsmiths, these cymbals deliver sonic richness and striking aesthetics thanks to their one-of-a-kind hand hammered marks. 

Delivering stunning looks and luscious sound, these 15 inch hi-hats are the ideal choice for the diverse modern drummer.

Meinl Byzance Foundry Reserve 15 inch Hi-Hats Key Features:

  • Mixture of Hand Hammering and Full Lathing
  • Thin Top
  • Medium Thin Bottom
  • Warm Stick Response
  • Sizzling Open Wash
  • Strong Foot Chick
  • Includes Specially Designed Box with Extras

Well-Balanced Weight

Consising of a thin top and medium thin bottom, the Meinl Byzance Foundry 15 inch Hi-Hats deliver a versatile sound that works well in both live performance and studio recording situations.

This well-balanced weight combination provides a responsive playing feel that produces a sizzling warm tone with a clear, precise stick sound.

Fat Stick, Open Sizzle, Strong Chick

These Meinl 15 inch hi-hats offer a superbly versatile tone thanks to the combination of the hand hammering and lathing production processes and the weights of the top and bottom cymbals.

Providing a fat, warm stick sound, these hi hats deliver clear precision perfect for intricate sticking patterns.

Opening the hi-hats slightly produces a luscious sizzle of sparkling tone ideal for cutting through the mix when playing live or for adding extra emphasis in the studio.

The strong foot chick rounds off the sound of the 15 inch Foundry Reserve Hi-Hats brilliantly to complete their well-balanced tone.

Whether you need the intricacy of jazz and funk, want sparkling open wash for rock settings or require a consistent, solid foot chick to keep your music moving, these hi-hats deliver versatile tone to cover all situations.

Unique Aesthetic

Each individual cymbal of the Meinl Byzance Foundry Reserve range has a stunningly unique finish.

The hand hammering process utilised in the making of these hi-hats means that every cymbal is truly one-of-a-kind.

The Meinl Cymbalsmiths have spent extra time adding more hammering to the cymbal blanks in order to develop the complex voice of these hi-hats.

The hammering process is then followed by full lathing of the top and bottom of the cymbal to complete the stunning cymbal sound.

The top surface of the top hi-hat has intentionally been left free of large logos in order to let the natural beauty of the hand hammering hold its own.

Added Extras

As with all the Byzance Foundry Reservce cymbals, these hi-hats come in a specially designed box to keep them well protected.

The box also houses a pair of Meinl Stick & Brush Standard 5a drumsticks, a pair of 100% cotton cymbal gloves, a letter from Meinl managing director Reinhold Meinl and a certificate of authenticity.

Perfectly complementing the handcrafted, versatile tone of these cymbals, the beautiful attention to detail in the form of the packing and added extras serves to make the purchase of these hi-hats feel super special.


Providing a truly unique aesthetic and brilliantly versatile tone, the Meinl Byzance Foundry Reserve 15 inch Hi-Hats feel exquisitely special.

Delivering a warm stick response, sizzling wash and a solid chick sound, these hi-hats are able to fulfil the needs of the most diverse modern drummer.

From the studio to the stage, the stunning handcrafted tone of these cymbals will ensure you achieve the sound you want no matter what style you play.
