- There's no need to spend $640 on Meinl Byzance 16s". Or Zildjian Light Hats. That’s silly!!
- These rare MASSIVE hand-hammered Istanbul 16s” have a glorious, dark, fat, low-pitched tone.
- And these are some of the newest Istanbul creations! They’re the only pair I have and the only pair I’ve SEEN!
- Istanbul’s LEGEND Series (also known as the MEL LEWIS Series) is, well, legendary.
- It has long been one of Agop and Mehmet’s best-selling series. It put them on the map 30 years ago.
- Mehmet expanded the series and these LEGEND DRY Hats are some of my favorites. As you can see these massive 16” hats have a thin alternating gold/raw lathing. Very Agop SE Special Edition vibe. Ish.
- The result is a stunning, ULTRA DARK, semi-dry stick attack when closed with a smoky, organic, fairly complex wash that dissipates quickly when opened.
- Beautiful dark sizzle when you open them up and play them loosely, clamp down for a tight, crisp, DARK, massive grooves.
- SUPER-dark, wonderfully low-pitched, very fat sounding slightly complex and all with the generous playground of 16s”.
- This pair is in IMMACULATE condition. These 16s” are quite rare. And they’re a JOY to play.
- Some of the best cymbals they make. Very hard to find today.
- K killers.
- Absolutely phenomenal 16s”!
