  • One of the warmest, most buttery cymbals you will ever find!

  • As many of you may know, Istanbul built its name off their first endorser - Mel Lewis. And this Legend Series is that Mel Lewis Series - from back in the day when Agop and Mehmet played nicely together.

  • This is the end of the line for ultra-warm, buttery, dark, and lush.

  • 21” Legend Series in the famous 21” size and in the FACTORY SIZZLE.

  • This is one of the most popular of Istanbul cymbals and would be a good reason. Stunningly hand-hammered with telltale very fine lathing. Low profile. 

  • Only 2114 grams.

  • Dark.  Low pitched. Super warm and lush with a light and airy subtle stick attack.  What stands out about this particular one is that the edges are very thin and they BLUR when struck. 

  • Also, this one has a pinch of smokiness to it - it’s a bit more organic for the series. A little more complex, but still famously smooth and glowing.

  • Add the glow of two factory brass rivets and you have the perfect old school, main ride, or Left Side Crash Ride Sizzle.

  • Insanely crashable. Very thin edges.

  • Immaculate condition. Played for the video and that’s it. 

  • One of the most beautiful sounding Tributes to a LEGEND.
