  • Here's a glorious pair of DARK and CRISP sounding Hand Hammered Istanbul Prototype 15s”. Very tight and focused but with a handmade light complexity you can’t get from machine made cymbals.  

  • These massive 15" have exquisite craftsmanship - the Top Cymbal is Traditional Finish except for the outer 2” which is unlathed and raw in the famous TURK style.  And the underside is gorgeous - it’s the REVERSE of the top but ALL BRILLIANT.  

  • Factory Ink weights and “ES” on the underside. 1355 and 1500 grams. 
  • The end result: a pair of massive, dark and very crisp sounding hihats with a light complexity, amazing CHICK, and a pinch of shimmer on top. 

  • Weighing in at a perfect 1355 and 1500 grams, these huge 15s” espouse the time-honored New Beat styled Medium weight top with a heavy weight bottom for a strong clarity. 

  • Cut extremely well but still remain complex. 

  • Unique, dark, lower pitched, organic and fairly controlled with a light sibilance. 

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

  • Immaculate condition; no big company offers anything as crisp and low as these hand-crafted 15s”.
