 Here's a GREAT SOUNDING THIN TURKISH CRASH OR EVEN LIGHT RIDE!!!There's NO NEED TO SPEND $365 OR EVEN $425 ON A NEW ZILDJIAN K CUSTOM DARK AND K CONSTANTINOPLE CRASH!! Why not get a HAND HAMMERED 18" FOR LITERALLY LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE???And you need not settle for some intermediate  Paiste PST7 CRAP either!! Posted for your immense pleasure is this Top of the Line and RARE Hand Hammered Istanbul MEHMET 18" FINKOX CRASH that is in FANTASTIC Condition and in the Mehmet Bag! Check out the pictures! I am thrilled to report that there are NO nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this Turkish Queen. It's in GREAT SHAPE with only the lightest signs of use!!  VERY CLEAN! As you can see, this 18" is a lot like the Sultan Series in the different lathing patterns on the top of the cymbal with the underside in fully Lathed.  However the Finkox Series has a sandblasted finish, a la the Meinl Sand Ride, or even the Sabian Jack DeJonette Encore Series, which helps to control and dry out the tone a bit, the top has Brilliant/Golden Tone Bands as opposed to Raw ones.It's like the bastard child of a Sultan and a Sabian Encore or Meinl Benny Greb Sand Crash.  Weighing in at a LOVELY 1326 grams, this Mehmet 18" plays like a Semi-Dark, slightly complex Thin Crash. Overall the pitch is Medium to Medium Low. The attack is strong and the wash is fairly full, HOWEVER, the sandblasted finish and Sultan style craftsmanship give this thin crash a bit more of a controlled, slightly drier vibe with a medium fast sustain. What's really nice about the aged-sand blasted treatment is that if you have a light touch, you CAN use this 18" as a small, Left Side Crash Ride. The Encore-like underside gives this 18" a little bit more of a light, dry attack when you use it as a ride. The overall tone is semi-dark. Medium to medium low in pitch. Fairly controlled but still with plenty of hand hammered wash. Great as a crash OR smaller Ride. A beautiful sounding Hand Hammered 18". And you ain't gonna' find this rare Istanbul ANYWHERE!!!  It's an exceptionally well crafted instrument. This is not some beat-ass ZHT B8 garbage!  Get a top-of-the-line actually Hand Hammered 18" for a great deal! You can use this Mehmet Finkox Crash for whatever your heart's content. Its semi-dark tone is perfect for jazz, blues, funk, fusion, country, and pop. And its thin weight and fairly full tone makes it a welcomed addition to any rock or pop rig. THIS ONE IS IN GREAT CONDITION! EXTREMELY CLEAN!!  If you want a great sounding Hand Hammered cymbal without spending $360 or even $425, then this is a fantastic choice!! So do yourself a favor and grab this Rare, 1326 gram Hand Hammered Sultan-style Istanbul Mehmet 18" FINKOX Crash.Check out my store and all of my other listings for more great cymbals and snare drums…
