> > > Matt Garstka Presents Meinl Byzance Vintage Equilibrium 20″ China

New drum gear is emerging from the secret headquaters of many companies. One of the best cymbal makers, Meinl Cymbals, are preparing some big announcements for this year. They are beginning with the ultimate china engineered with Animals As Leaders drummer, Matt Garstka. His signature cymbal is called Meinl Byzance Vintage Equilibrium 20″ China. It’s made of B20 Bronze and has eight holes. Word “Equilibrium” in the name means a state of  balance due to the equal action of opposing forces in the cymbal. Sounds poetic!

Matt wanted to develop a china that he could ride on in a heightened energy situation for a more aggressive sound, but that he could also use in a lower energy passage for more color and nuance. The Equilibrium China provides the perfect balance of a cutting “chaw” sound and a softer, dry trashiness, making it a china for many applications. We just can’t wait to test it!
