- There's no need to spend $580 on Meinl Byzance or Zildjian Light Hats. That’s silly!!
- These gorgeous hand-hammered Istanbul 14s” have a glorious, dark, fat, lower-pitched tone that’s wonderfully smooth!
- And these are some of the newer Istanbul creations!
- Istanbul’s LEGEND Series (also known as the MEL LEWIS Series) is, well, legendary.
- It has long been one of Agop and Mehmet’s best-selling series. It put them on the map 30 years ago.
- Mehmet expanded the series and these LEGEND DRY Hats are some of my favorites. As you can see these 14” hats have a thin alternating gold/raw lathing. Very Agop SE Special Edition vibe - Ish.
- The result is a stunning, DARK, semi-dry stick attack when closed with a smoky, organic, fairly complex wash that dissipates quickly when opened and retains a refined smoothness.
- Beautiful dark sizzle when you open them up and play them loosely, clamp down for a tight, crisp, DARK, massive grooves.
- Dark. wonderfully lower pitched for 14s”, a great blend of complex and smooth!
- This pair is in IMMACULATE condition. These 14s” are quite rare. And they’re a JOY to play.
- Some of the best cymbals they make. Very hard to find today.
- K killers.
