  • The perfect DRY Dark Crash. 

  • This is one of Istanbul Mehmet's most beautiful series. Take a look at the craftsmanship on this. It's raw and black with alternating thin gold lathing stripes and heavily hand-hammered throughout.

  • My understanding is Kirkor K was Mehmet's mentor, and I have to say, this is a great way to thank someone who taught you everything you know.

  • As you would imagine with a sparsely lathed 18”, the attack is fairly dry but it still has a great crashability.  

  • I don't know how they did it, but they cracked the riddle of sphynx here. It’s a new cymbal but FEELS 60 years old.

  • It’s dark and dark and DOES NOT CLANK! 

  • At 1430 grams, it provides enough weight to be heard but still remains easily, crashable.

  • With a light touch this drier 18” makes a fantastic controlled, smaller Light Dry Ride 

  • Fairly dry, dark, medium-low in pitch; solid, raw, unlathed bell. Organic with a hint of hand-hammered complexity, an amazing Dark Crash. 

  • Again, this is one of the nicest looking (and sounding) 18s” out there.  

  • It’s perfect and you never see these outside a google image. 

  • This one is on the flesh!
