  • Looking for a fantastic truly DARK RIDE 20” with a killer bell?  Here it is:

  • Istanbul Prototype RAW BELL TRADITIONAL 20”  in fantastic condition. Factory christened on the underside “RB TR 20”. 

  • Have a listen - this is a wonderfully versatile Hand Hammered beauty! 

  • Take a look at this 20”! Fully lathed on top and bottom but with an unlathed, earthen, very dark and cutting Raw Bell. 

  • Super low profile gives this 20” a low pitch with very dark overtones. 

  • Add a healthy 2588 gram weight on this 20” and the result is a semi-dry, focused DARK Ride that cuts exceptionally well WITHOUT clanking.

  •  Being Hand Hammered there’s a gorgeous organic complexity in there, however with the heavier weight the stick definition is quite prominent - you hear every strike.  

  • Semi-dry, dark, old-world hand-hammered light complexity, roars with a rich fullness when you lay into it - amazing bell. 

  • In the ballpark of the K Dark Medium Ride but actually Hand Hammered and with a much stronger bell. 

  • Obviously it’s amazing at louder settings but listen to how great it plays quieter. 

  • Light patina. Amazing shape.  Golden glow.  

  • An incredibly versatile 20” with dark leanings and a broad dynamic range!
