CLASSIC TURKISH CONSTRUCTION IN A 23"!!! This Mehmet yields the perfect elixir of great definition in a heavier cymbal WITHOUT clanking or being too Ping-y or heavy handed. It's warm!

Sure you can spend $540 on a new non-hand hammered Zildjian K Constantinople.

BUT why not SAVE A TON OF MONEY and play something UNIQUE? And actually hand hammered!

And hell, NO ONE HAS THIS 23"!!!

Offered up for your delight is this HARD TO FIND ISTANBUL Mehmet 23" BLACK BELL RIDE that is in FANTASTIC Condition and comes IN THE BAG. Check out the pictures. I am thrilled to report that there are

NO

Nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this RARE 23". It's in GREAT SHAPE with only some test stick marks that have graced its surface (from the sound file I recorded.)

CHECK OUT THE HAMMERING ON THE SURFACE OF THIS TURKISH BEAUTY!!! THAT'S A LOT OF WORK!!!

THIS 23" HAS A WONDERFULLY FOCUSED SEMI-DARK TONE!!!  It's reminiscent of the Sabian Raw Bell Dry Ride, but it has that classic HAND HAMMERED COMPLEXITY and of course

IT'S A 23"!!! And doesn't cost $440 like the Sabian HH.

Weighing in at a glorious 3948 grams, this robust 23" plays like a Medium Heavy to Heavy Ride. What I really dig about this cymbal, is that it does not just clang its way through life. It is from Turkey after all, and it has that classic Turkish tone you've come to expect from HAND MADE MEHMETS!!!.

And this 23" is Smoooooo00000OOOOTH.

The RAW BELL on this Beast is EXTREMELY Solid and SURPRISINGLY DARK, and slices through guitar players with ease. As you migrate down to the plain of this 23", you get a fantastic, aggressive stick definition that remains focused and doesn't overpower the ensuing wash. Very strong medium low pitched Semi-Dry tone.

Semi-dark. Wonderfully focused. Golden warm wash that percolates underneath the attack but remains controlled. MONSTER CRASH when laid into. Subtle Hand Hammered complexity. Incredibly musical!!!

THAT IS THIS RARE 23"!!! And it's in the BAG CLEAN!!

You can use this Istanbul Mehmet 23" Black Bell Ride on whatever the hell you want. Its supreme projection and penchant for impaling guitarists makes it a lovely choice for rock, classic rock, pop, punk and heavier styles, however, its application is not limited to inciting riots. Its tone is perfect for funk, fusion, country, R&B, hip-hop, and session work and it's even dark enough for a Dry Jazz Ride.

$540 for the non-hand hammered Zildjian K Cons? 

$500 for the Kerope 22"?

GET THIS UNIQUE 23" and actually SAVE A TON OF MONEY!!!

So do yourself a favor and grab this gorgeous and RARE, SUPER CLEAN in the bag Istanbul MEHMET 23" Black Bell Ride.

AND HANG ONTO IT!!
