  • If you want a terrific stick to wash ratio on a BIG, gorgeous Dark Ride, here you are:

  • Goldilocks Half Traditional Half Turk Istanbul Mehmet PROTOTYPE Dark Ride 22”. 

  • Raw, unlathed bell gives way to a fully lathed, traditional interior plain, while the outer edges return to the raw, heavily hammered TURK style craftsmanship.

  • Add a 2550 gram weight on a 22” and the result is an extremely well-balanced Dark Ride. Being Hand Hammered and partially raw, there’s plenty of organic complexity in there, however where this 22” cracks the Riddle of the Sphinx is that the stick definition is quite prominent - you hear every strike.

  • Semi-dry, dark, old-world hand-hammered complexity, half raw, half traditional warm. Easily crashable with a rich fullness when you lay into it - and that’s a beautiful thing on a 22”! 

  • Factory labeled “2550” on the underside.

  • Perfect for soft to loud settings.

  • This is an amazing-sounding Prototype. Amazing condition. Demoed for the video. 

  • One of the nicest DARK, organic 22s” you will hear.

  • And you won’t find this anywhere.
