  • Well this is one of the most beautiful instruments you will hear. This is something you WISH Zildjian made. A true Dark Ride! 

  • A Thin 24” TURK JAZZ RIDE that wobbles like a manta ray when stuck - but is still DRY!
  • Instantly recognizable, famously RAW, unlathed, heavily Hand Hammered earthen copper/gold/sienna appearance, Istanbul Mehmet 24” Turk Jazz Ride.

  • This 2 foot piece of sonic art is reminiscent of the HUGE Zildjians from way back in the day - the ones in black and white photos with Buddy Rich and Jo Jones. Big beautiful actually Hand Hammered cymbals. 

  • The Turk Series is renowned for its dry, dark, smoky organic tone, and this generous and rare 24” brings the great reputation to life.

  • At only 2850 grams it’s pretty THIN. And definitely crashable. The edges wobble with glee. It plays like a 70 year open cymbal.  

  • Very low profile and bell, exotic, dark, brooding, organic, unique.  Glorious. Simply amazing. 

  • You create the voice, but this cymbal is the vocal chord.  

  • One of the nicest dark, dry cymbals around  Immaculate condition.  

  • And this 24” is very rare. It’s a head tuner.
