  • I gotta say, Istanbul did a fantastic job with this particular 18” Tony Williams. 
  • IN THE ANNULS OF DRUM HISTORY TONY WILLIAMS STANDS AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN - HIS CYMBAL TONE IS THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER IN HISTORY. 

  • ISTANBUL MEHMET SET OUT TO DUPLICATE THAT INIMITABLE TONE AND THEY CERTAINLY DID A SPECTACULAR JOB - ALL WITH THE HELP AND BLESSING OF TONY'S WIFE, COLLEEN WILLIAMS.

  • Absolutely gorgeous Istanbul Mehmet TONY WILLIAMS Tribute 60s Era 18” Crash or Light Ride in  fantastic condition! Extremely clean. 

  • The time and effort put into this 18” is immediately apparent with the first strike.

  • Weighing in at a glorious and THIN 1266 grams - this beauty plays like a glorious THIN Dark Crash or Thin Light Ride - hell it’s so smooth it almost plays itself. 

  • Amazing semi-complex, overall SMOOTH, wonderfully dark sounding tone that marries organic with clean. 

  • The tone hints of darkness and is still glowingly warm and also undeniably SMOOTH. The stick attack on the ride is prominent but subtle, it's very evenly balanced - especially for an 18”. Light and smooth. 

  • One of the nicest sounding most versatile cymbals on the market.

  • Dark. Crashable. Ride-able. Smooth. And all with a fantastic hand hammered subtle complexity.

  • It's an incredible tribute and testament to Tony's sound! STUNNING, inspiring and a joy to play!

  • No issues.  Very clean. Rare and will only appreciate over the years. 

  • It’s inspiring to play and a felicitous tribute to one of the greatest drummers who’s ever lived.
