  • Hand Hammered Quick Beats!!! The joy continues!! 

  • Who knew these even existed! 
  • I love Zildjian Quick Beats. They’ve been on thousands of recordings and were the studio darlings of the 1970s and 80s with their famously focused crisp tone. 

  • But Zildjian never Hand Hammered them!!! 

  • And that’s exactly where is Istanbul picked up the ball!! 

  • Hand Hammered Istanbul MehmetQUICK BEAT styled 14” FLAT Hi Hats in Amazing Condition. 

  • The best part about Quick Beats is they offer an ultra-tight and crisp, focused tone that cuts magnificently. 

  • Now….imagine that with an Old World Hand Hammered Turkish light complexity. Why it’s a beautiful thing!  

  • Have a listen!! 

  • Seeeeeeee! It is fun!!  

  • These Rare Istanbuls pack a crisp and tight tone when closed, however actually being Hand Hammered they possess a lovely light complex liveliness to them. Classic Istanbul Traditional tone. 

  • When closed tight they have that great, clean articulate TIGHT sound. 

  • Open them for a beautiful, more organic and complex tone than Zildjians. 

  • 1108 and 1374 grams give them the traditional Quick Beat Medium-Heavy Top to Heavy Bottom Hi Hat ratio.  

  • And they CUT!! 

  • And those lovely factory 4 holes on the Flat Bottom Cymbal enable fast action when played with you foot. 

  • Crisp. Tight. Focused. Hand Hammered.  And that’s a rare combination. But then again these hihats are rare. 

  • No issues. Amazing shape. Very hard to find.
