  • This is one of Istanbul Mehmet's most beautiful series. Take a look at the craftsmanship on these. They’re raw and black with alternating thin gold lathing stripes and heavily hand-hammered throughout.

  • And you can hear this exact pair so you can buy with confidence.  No guesswork! 

  • My understanding is Kirkor K was Mehmet's mentor, and I have to say, this is a great way to thank someone who taught you everything you know.

  • As you would imagine, these sparsely lathed 14s” offer a stunning stick attack and is wonderfully dry and crisp. But they have a pliable softness to them that makes them FEEL 70 years old. 

  • Very controlled overtones allow for fantastic stick articulation. 

  • 956 and 1150 grams make for a great pair of 14s” that play like Medium Thin Hihats with classic New Beat style weights for a strong chick.  They don’t clank, they have a dark, soft pliability to them! 

  • They’re lower-pitched and much fatter sounding than many other 14s, they could even pass as 15s” but don’t have that sluggishness.

  • Low profile gives them a wonderfully dark and lower-pitched tone. 

  • Dry, dark, medium-low in pitch; the solid, raw, unlathed bell that gives them a great cutting ability.

  • Organic with a hint of hand-hammered complexity when opened - but just for a moment. Overall they are quite dry sounding. 

  • Extremely hard to find, handmade, wonderfully dark and dry 14s” in Immaculate Condition!  

  • You hardly ever find these - or even anything like these! And you can hear them so you can buy with confidence! Incredible Hand Hammered beauties.
