I’m not entirely sure what this cymbal is but it sounds fantastic and has the hallmarks of a Hand Hammered Turk Style Dry Ride. It appears to be some sort of Prototype.

The profile is flatter than a dark giving it a lower pitched darkness and the bell is generously rounded over and rises HIGH off the plain.  

Stunning craftsmanship. Hand Hammered throughout in the ball peen HH style or Istanbul/Bosphorus Turk fashion.  But there is this beautiful .5” golden lathed ring right under the bell as the profile migrates down to the playing field.  

The underside is fully lathed so that there is a great balance of dry and organic stick attack on top with a light breath of warm body underneath that initial strike - compliments of the golden lathed underside.

As you can hear, this 20” Prototype crashes exceptionally well too.  

Overall dry with a hint of light complex warmth.  Solid bell that rises high and lends a broad crashability.  Still has an earthen, fully Hand Hammered organic tone.  

Can use it for absolutely anything.  

Immaculate condition. A sonic steel at this price - literally less than HALF of what an Istanbul or Zildjian K Custom Special Dry costs.

It’s fun to play the gear no one else has or even knows about - especially when it’s still this musical.
