  • A terrific warm sounding Istanbul that has a semi-dark, woody stick attack but this one is particularly clean sounding.  Very clear articulation without losing warmth.  
  • Don’t waste time guessing at a stock photo! Have a listen to this exact cymbal so you can buy with confidence. 

  • As many of you may know, Istanbul built its name off their first endorser - Mel Lewis. And this Legend Series is that Mel Lewis Series - from back in the day when Agop and Mehmet played nicely together.

  • Famous Hand Hammered Istanbul Legend Series Ride in the controlled 20” size and in amazing Condition. 

  • This is one of the most popular of Istanbul cymbals and would be a good reason. Stunningly hand-hammered with telltale very fine lathing. Low profile. 

  • Only 1831 grams.

  • Semi-Dark.  Medium Low pitched. Super warm and lush with a light and airy subtle stick attack.  What stands out about this particular one is that it has a pinch of clean and crystalline attack as far as Istanbuls go. 

  • Overall clean sounding for the series.  

  • Definitely crashable.  Extremely responsive. 

  • Amazing condition. Played for the video and that’s about m it. 

  • One of the most beautiful sounding Tributes to a LEGEND.
