- If you want a terrific stick to wash ratio on a BIG, gorgeous Dark Ride, get this:
- Goldilocks Half TURK Half TRADITIONAL Istanbul Mehmet PROTOTYPE Dark Ride 22”.
- As you can see the top side of this 22” is raw, unlathed and heavily Hand Hammered - like an Istanbul TURK Ride while the underside is FULLY lathed like a Traditional. Factory writing under the bell reads “1/2 T.”
- Add a 2528 gram weight on a 22” and the result is an extremely well-balanced, semi-dry Dark Ride.
- Being Hand Hammered and partially raw, there’s plenty of organic, dry, earthy complexity in there - like a 22” Turk, however where this 22” cracks the Riddle of the Sphinx is that fully lathed underside gives it a very even and smooth fairly warm wash.
- But just for a moment. It’s drier than a Traditional.
Semi-dry, amazing stick attack, dark, old-world hand-hammered complexity, half raw, half traditional warm. Easily crashable with a rich fullness when you lay into it but the decay is medium fast. And that’s a beautiful thing on a 22”!
- The perfect blend between a Turk and a Traditional.
- Goes from soft to medium loud with ease.
- This is an amazing-sounding Prototype. Amazing condition. Demoed for the video. Perfect.
- One of the nicest DARK and EVEN 22s” you will hear.
