  • No big company makes this one. Hell, Istanbul hardly makes this one! It’s pretty hard to find where someone actually has it in stock.  Not a lame stock photo - but something you can actually hear!    

  • Amazing, SUPER dry, extremely responsive, organic Istanbul Mehmet 18” Flat Ride with a slight shadow of breathiness. 

  • Classic TURK craftsmanship - raw, unlathed, heavily Hand Hammered throughout!  

  • The absence of a bell gives flat rides a controlled, focused tone with a fantastic stick attack.

  • And that is exactly what we have with this 1738 gram beauty!   

  • Very tight, pin-point, prominent stick articulation with a very organic, raw wash that lasts but a moment. A pinch of complexity. 

  • Not your average Flat Ride! 
  • This rare 18” flat is all about articulation.  I mean it’s DRY and it decays quickly and gets out of the way. 

  • Crash on it for a desert-lightening-like effects crash.  

  • Perfect for very low to medium, medium loud settings.  Amazing under the mic.

  • No issues. Immaculate shape. 

  • Incredible sounding 18” that you rarely see!
