Does anyone know if these are being made by Diril?
Not according to Halldorl in post 22 above in response to Amazish

Nice
Love Meinl.
Diril makes these for them in Turkey as well as the Masters line for Paiste.
I have to correct you on that one. Diril makes no cymbals for Meinl. That stopped many years ago.

Meinl have their own factory in Turkey where the Byzance series is made.
And please note I also corrected the misinformation on Diril and the Paiste Masters line in earlier posts. Alas the internet has a long memory for incorrect information combined with a short memory for later corrections.

Nice marketing touch with the gloves, (white no less), sticks, and certification.
However, do we/I really need to pay extra for that?
No wonder the individual cost is as high for each cymbal as it is.
And, what am I going to do with 3-4 pairs of gloves,sicks that I most likely would never use, (aren't sticks as personal as the other gear we select?), and a certificate for each cymbal I purchase?

I will wait until they hit the Reverb market. In the meantime, I will stick with what I have...and save some $$
The 22" ride is priced the same as:
Sabian Artisan
Zildjian Constantinople
Paiste Traditional
Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary

... so you get nifty bonus packing which can make it more of an experience or you can throw as a frisbee. The cymbal alone definitely deserves to be in the same upper echelon of the other companies.

Way back in 2000, I believe, when Meinl went with their own factory in Istanbul...
