  • Exceptional 15” Hihats that you hardly ever see.  I’ve only seen two or three pair of these. And they’re absolutely fantastic. 

  • They’re Hand Hammered and handmade and less than a pair of humdrum-ass 14” New Beats. 
  • Darker, dryer, and much more musical than any K Constantinople could dream to be. Fully lathed golden top, raw, unlathed underside, that's the Istanbul Vezir. 
  • This combination provides the Goldilocks zone for a terrific, controlled stick attack when closed followed by a medium quick accent with a pinch of warmth and pinch of dry. However, that wash dissipates faster than the fully lathed Traditional Hihats. Therein lies the magic of these  Vezirs. Perfect accents when opened. 

  • 1295 and 1472 grams gives these Vezirs a great Dark Medium Thin feel. They cut exceptionally well but REMAIN dark and fairly dry with a controlled complexity.  Incredible CHICK - especially with the raw underside. 

  • Dark, low-profile, lower pitched, fantastic stick articulation both with a stick and with your foot, cutting without clanking. 

  • A glorious hand-hammered pair of 15s” in IMMACULATE condition in the bag. 

  • This Series has been around for 30 years and with good reason.
  • These are the Rare 15s” handmade in the Old World way!
