Price: $369.99
24"

$570!! That is how much a new Zildjian K Constantinople 22" Ride will set you back. 

Or of course you can get a regular Zildjian K  for $470.

That's a lot of loot a small 22" ride. 

How about $540 for a Zildjian 24" Light that plays like a Rock Ride next to this beauty!??

Now check out this Hand Hammered 2 FOOT specimen that's INFINITELY DARKER AND MORE MUSICAL THAN ANY K CONS. 

It's actually Hand Hammered and FROM the former Constantinople!!!

AND IT'S AN IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND MASSIVE 24" GEM!!! It's akin to the AGOP SE Jazz Ride for those of you cymbalholics watching at home. 

Look at the close-ups on this 24". Beautiful craftsmanship! And YES, the edges bend with ease! 

Semi-dry and semi-complex. Incredibly responsive. And unbelievably DARK and brooding!  That's the beauty of this 24".  

Posted for your immense pleasure is this exceptionally Hard to Find and wonderfully Fairly-Dry and DARK sounding, completely hand made Istanbul Mehmet 24" MC JAZZ Ride that is in AMAZING Condition. Check out the pictures! I am happy to report that there are 

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this Hand Hammered wonder. It's is GREAT Shape!! VERY, VERY CLEAN AND IN THE BAG!!!

SO CLEAN that this massive 2 foot beauty could PASS AS NEW! And look at the close-ups on this Istanbul! It's gorgeous!

And dig the sparser lathing on this 24". It's not fully lathed like a Traditional. This no doubt contributes to the drier, more pronounced stick articulation. 

Here's what Mehmet has to say about the MC Jazz:

"Designed to capture the sounds of unlathed Turk cymbals with a light weight jazz ride. This combination gives you a dark and dry sound, great stick definition with mellow overtones. The bell has a raw unlathed surface and the body has vintage and sparse lathing. We recommend MC Jazz series for today's players who play traditional jazz or are searching for a light weighted dark cymbal sound for any type of music"

And then extrapolate that out to a 24"!!!!

This used to be called the MC Jazz Constantinople series.  The real question is, what's the difference between the MC Jazz and the MC Jazz Constantinople?  The answer...a cease and desist letter.  Zildjian won that marketing contest, with the help of some expensive lawyers, I'm sure.

Weighing in at ONLY 2887 grams, this Mehmet plays like a HUGE Thin to Medium Thin Semi-Dry DARK Ride. It's not excessively dry but as they promise, it definitely has a nice, organic, definition on top. The pitch of this 24" is GLORIOUSLY LOW with a that inimitable dark, hand-hammered wash residing under the attack. And the bell is raw ans strong enough for "the latin thing."  

What's nice about this specific 24" is that although it is drier it does have a nice spread to it yielding a slightly complex vibe. 

Hand hammered. Semi dry and controlled for a 2 foot beauty. VERY dark.  Medium low in pitch. Exceptionally responsive. Semi complex.  Unique. Musical!

And at 2887 grams it's definitely CRASHABLE! 

If you like organic and DARK, this is one of the nicest cymbals you will find. Period! 

And this 24" would be a perfect candidate for rivets if you're so inclined!!!

Obviously this RARE, GIGANTIC Istanbul Mehmet 24" MC Jazz Ride is a no brainer for blues, trio work, folk, soul...and jazz. However the fun doesn't stop there. You can use it for funk, fusion, country, mellow pop, rock and ANYTIME you need a semi-dry, wonderfully dark and brooding semi-complex head turning Hand Hammered Turkish Tone. 

$570??  For a non-hand hammered 22" cymbal???

THIS 24" IS MUCH DARKER AND MORE MUSICAL. AND A JOY TO PLAY! Guaranteed! 

AND YOU NEVER SEE THIS CYMBAL IN THE WILD. 

SAVE MONEY AND get this darker and much more complex beauty for much less!!!

Do yourself a favor and grab this AMAZING Condition MASSIVE 2 FOOT Hand Hammered Semi-Dry and VERY Dark Istanbul Mehmet 24" MC Jazz Ride.
