  • You hardly EVER see these Istanbul TURK Hihats in the BIG 15” size. Maybe there’s a few sterile stock photos floating around - and who knows what you’re getting or what they sound like.

  • But this exact pair you can HEAR! Listen away so you can buy with confidence. And this pair is very organic, low and dark sounding - a signature tone. 
  • Legendary Hats that Istanbul has made for the last 35 years. It was these type of cymbals that turned heads decades ago and demanded Istanbul get a second look. And now of course they’re renown for this kind of craftsmanship and original tone! 

  • These Unlathed DRY Hihats deliver a dark, organic and wonderfully complex tone that still delivers a quick and dry response. I marvel at how Istanbul captures the dry, complex and organic vibe perfect, and in 15s”! 

  • At 1080 and 1365 grams, they play like Dark Medium Thin DRY 15s” with a whole new world of organic sounding. 

  • Hand-hammered throughout, unlathed and raw, incredibly handcrafted. 

  • This particular pair has a bit of deep and dark liveliness when opened - a percolating sibilance that lets you know these weren’t machine made! They’re unique and sound it. 

  • Perfect condition. They’re the only pair I have.  And one of the few pair of 15” TURKS I’ve ever seen. 

  • No big company offers Hihats like these, these have much more of an earthen, organic, tone and are definite head-turners.  Very musical and a lot of fun to explore and play.
