  • Here's a glorious pair of Paper Thin 16s” that you will not find.  These huge beauties sound amazing.

  •  Guaranteed. Have a listen yourself. 

  • Dark, extremely smooth and mellow, lower-pitched organic and exceptionally responsive.  

  • They’re so musical you can open them up and crash on them! 

  • These massive 16s" one-offs have the craftsmanship of a fully lathed Traditional Series for the Top Cymbal while the Bottom Cymbal is raw, unlathed, heavily hand-hammered like a Turk, but with a Brilliant Finish bell. 

  • The end result: a pair of incredibly sounding, warm dark and smooth Paperthin 16s” with a hint of organic complexity from that raw bottom hihat. 

  • Weighing in at only 822 and 858 grams, these huge 16s" sound magnificent when splashed together with your foot, opened or closed. 

  • Unique, dark, lower pitched, organic and fairly controlled with a short decay for big 16s". Exceptionally musical.  

  • Amazing for recording. They come alive even with brushes.  Perfect for very low to medium loud settings. 

  • Perfect condition; no big company offers anything as thin and beautiful as these hand-crafted 16s”.
