  • Well, this just makes me happy! 

  • A truly Hand Hammered 28”! And it’s a one-off PROTOTYPE.  
  • And this can easily be your main ride cymbal. 

  • This is reminiscent of those HUGE Zildjians you would see in the background of a 1940s or 1950s Zildjian ad with Papa Joe Jones.  Just a massive wavy hand-hammered cymbal lying against the wall and you’re like “what the hell is that?!!” 

  • Well, this rare 28” celebrates that era and vibe! 

  • It’s even LOOKS 80 years old with its Vintage copper sienna Raw Hand Hammered craftsmanship. 

  • Ultra Rare HUGE Masterwork 28” Prototype TURK Natural Ride in Immaculate shape! 

  • Unique.

  • As you can see, this stunning 28” has a beautifully Hand Hammered raw bell feeding into a raw, unlathed massive plain that fans all the way out to the edge. 

  • The result is a cymbal that has all the wonderful light and complex tone of a truly Hand Hammered cymbal with the focus and drier attack of a raw, unlathed cymbal. 

  • With a weight of 3844 grams, this MASSIVE 28” Masterwork Proto plays like a great, dry semi- complex-sounding Medium Thin to Medium Light Ride or CRASH RIDE. The weight gives it a good attack while the Old-World Turkish craftsmanship lends its telltale complexity to the mix. 

  • Remarkably responsive at low to medium level volumes!   Crash on it and it ROARS like the levee just broke - more than capable in loud to very loud settings. 

  • Organic but still with a glow. Subtle but lively, responsive with a smooth complexity.

  • The 28” size supplies myriad options for drawing tone out of this instrument.  It’s like playing a grand piano! 

  • A gorgeous Main Ride or massive Crash Ride. 

  • MESMERIZING to watch wobble and float about. 

  • This is a unique instrument! It’s a calling card. It can easily be your main ride or roaring crash! Or make it sizzle for that 1940s vibe! 

  • Whatever you decide, it’s an absolute JOY to play and make music with and have fun with.  

  • Nothing like it at all. No issues. Immaculate shape! Gorgeous dark sienna COPPER HUE.
