Posted for immense pleasure is this DELICIOUSLY DARK AND WONDROUSLY THIN, HAND HAMMERED 2956 gram Istanbul Mehmet NOSTALGIA 50s SERIES 24" RIDE that is in ABSOLUTELY STUNNING  Condition. Check out the pictures! There are 

NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this HUGE 24"! It's in GREAT SHAPE! GLOWING! 

The plain of the cymbal has a gorgeous hand hammered wavy appearance-like a Vintage Zildjian of yore. 

Here's what Mehmet has to say about the Nostalgia line:

"Specially designed for jazz drummers. Nostalgia Series jazz cymbals have the same characteristics of the popular vintage jazz ride cymbals."

And specifically the "50s" version:

"Dark, woody stick definition, bigger and sharper bell than the 70's, umbrella type profile.  Excellent vintage sound reminiscent of the legendary 50's Turkish jazz ride."

Now imagine all that glory in a GLORIOUS 24"! 

Hardly ANYONE ACTUALLY HAS THIS BEAUTY IN STOCK!

Weighing in at a fantastic 2956 grams this Mehmet plays like an amazing DARK, FAIRLY COMPLEX, Thin to Medium Thin Ride. The tone is wonderfully DARK and organic and glowingly warm!! The stick attack is prominent but subtle-this beauty is very, very mellow!!  GOLDEN TURKISH TONE OF YORE!!!!

The pitch is medium low to low, but this 24" can easily be your main ride! 

And yes, at only 2956 grams, this Mehmet is definitely CRASHABLE. WAY crashable in fact.

Dark. Low pitched. Massive. Super warm. Golden. Complex but not grating. Responsive. Hand Hammered glow. The bell is large and rounded so it's perfect for the latin thing or even louder applications. And the 2 foot playing field is a JOY to experience!! 

That is this 24". 

And this 24" would be a great candidate for rivets if you want to make it a massive Sizzle Ride.

Light Left Side Ride? Thin Main Ride?  Huge Dark Crash. Whatever you decide this Mehmet is a WORKHORSE Cymbal.

You can use this MEHMET 24" Nostalgia 50s Ride for whatever your heart's desire. Obviously it's great for jazz, blues, ballads and soul. But that's only if you dream in black and white. This 24" in amazing for mellow rock...and pop, funk, fusion, acoustic and singer songwriter gigs, and definitely session work.

$560 for a big box store machine-made Zildjian K Cons 22"????

$380 for a regular Zildjian A Medium Ride???

THIS IS THE MASSIVE DARK 24"!! NO ONE HAS THIS BEAUTY, AND IT'S IN AMAZING CONDITION!!
