  • Here’s a show stopper! The end of the road for the perfect 20” Semi-Dry Complex Ride. The REAL ONE! Has that Tony-esque stick on top. Have a listen! 

  • Vintage Zildjian ISTANBUL K 20” at 2477 grams - fantastic straight up stick attack for a 20”. One of the best you’ll hear.  

  • Zildjian began 400 years ago in Istanbul, Turkey. This 20” is not only from that illustrious Turkish tradition, it’s one of the few remaining actually made in Turkey, as it all began. 

  • And while Zildjian has some nice 400th Anniversary “Vault” cymbals for $2000, you can actually get the REAL DEAL ZILDJIAN K ISTANBUL and save money.   

  • Have a listen to this beauty. It’s a perfect admixture between dry and complex. 

  • Dry Ride that crashes with that inimitable Old World complex, Hand Hammered Turkish factory Zildjian tone that has a pinch of earthy nastiness organically baked in. 

  • Naturally aged patina mellows it perfectly - rides like a dream. Then wakes you up with that crash. 

  • No issues. Gorgeous with a deep golden half-century old patina. 
  • Thinking of starting a cymbal company - start with this.

  • This Istanbul K 20” is to be celebrated for its history, cultural musical significance, artistry, and its sound.

  • Forged in Turkey, it’s been making music for the last half-a-century and has much more to say.
