  • A WIDE LIP 22” Raw Prototype that looks and sounds amazing. Unique. Marked “XRAW SWISH.”

  • Raw. Dry. Dark. Complex. Responsive. Opens fast with a very quick decay. Hand Hammered. 
  • Istanbul Mehmet Hand-Hammered RAW almost Turk Styled 22” Prototype China Swish with a distinctive Wide Lip - marked “XRAW SWISH” under the bell.  

  • Raw except for the smaller Swish style rounded over Brilliant bell. 

  • Generous 3.5” “WIDE LIP” beckons for your strike. 

  • And at only 1696 grams it’s THIN!

  • DARK and very organic. This is not your typical Zildjian China High or A Custom. Far from it. 

  • This thing is brooding and earthy sounding and plays like a handmade Zildjian Swish from the 1940s - which is almost impossible to find. 
  • DRY. Dark, complex, medium low-pitched, organic, great definition - compliments of that unlathed surface. 

  • Overall cutting and fast but not clanky.  It bends with ease. 

  • Looks amazing. Sounds like a 70-year-old Cymbal.  

  • Exceptionally responsive, perfect condition.

  • You won’t find this beauty around.
