  • This hand made 22" Prototype is one of the best dark, smooth Rides you will hear. And the inner portion is Brilliant so there is a light shimmer to it.  

  • Partially wide-lathed, partially fully lathed and Brilliant, Hand Hammered 22” Istanbul Mehmet Prototype Ride that is in amazing condition. 

  • “HL B 22” is written under the bell.  

  • As you can see this 22" is dual lathed, providing you with two distinct surfaces and tones.

  • This unique 22" does a lot. Great pin-point semi-dry stick attack with a strong definition followed by a slightly smoky wash that remains controlled.  And above it all is a clean shimmer that you don’t often find on Turkish cymbals. 

  • Overall dark but very smooth with a clean finish.  

  • Wonderfully well-balanced at 2705 grams, this 22" hand hammered Mehmet plays like a Medium Thin Dark Clean Ride. 

  • Brilliant bell cuts quite well but this is not a brutish cymbal. It’s smooth and mellower. Crash on it for a full dark huge wash. 

  • Amazing for very low to loud settings. 

  • Perfect condition. Gorgeous. You won’t see this unique 22” at Guitar Center.
