  • Here's a glorious pair of DARK and CRISP sounding Hand Hammered Istanbul Prototype 14s”.  Very tight and focused but with a handmade light complexity you can’t get from machine made cymbals.  

  •  Have a listen! No modern company makes anything like these A they’re the perfect blend of several characteristics- characteristics you hardly ever find all in one hihat.  

  • They’re tight and crisp but have hints of darkness with a Brilliant Shimmer and subtle complexity.  It’s a lot going one but it blends together in one pair perfectly! 

  • These beautiful 14s” have exquisite craftsmanship - the Top Cymbal is a unlathed Sandblasted Finish except for the outer 2” which is BRILLIANT and finely lathed. And the underside is a mirror of the top! 

  • The end result: a pair of terrific sounding, semi-dark, fat and very crisp hi hats with a light complexity, amazing CHICK, and a pinch of Brilliant shimmer on top.

  • That’s these hard to find beauties!  
  • Weighing in at a perfect 1138 and 1306 grams, these hand-crafted 14s” espouse the time-honored New Beat styled Medium weight top with a heavy weight bottom for a strong CHICK and clarity. 

  • Cut extremely well but remain responsive at lower volumes. 

  • Unique, dark, medium lower pitched, a blend of clean organic and fairly controlled with a light sibilance. 

  • Very responsive at low volumes and have no problem cutting through an amplified mix. 

  • Amazing condition; no big company offers anything crisp and low as these hand-crafted 14s”
