Posted for your immense pleasure is this Hard to Find and wonderfully Complex and VERY DARK sounding, Hand Hammered Istanbul Mehmet 16" MC JAZZ Crash that is in AMAZING Condition and in the BAG!!  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!!

So CLEAN in FACT that this beauty basically LOOKS NEW!

Hand Hammered all the way.

And dig the sparser lathing on this 16". It's not fully lathed like a Traditional. This no doubt contributes to the slightly drier vibe, however it STILL maintains an old school complexity.

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"

 

The key words are "light weight jazz" and "dark."

 

Weighing in at a VERY THIN 958 grams this Mehmet plays like a TRUE THIN DARK Crash. It's not excessively dry but as they promise, it definitely has a nice, organic tone. The edges are EASILY BENDABLE! It, of course, produces a COMPLEX Turkish Wash that you would expect from a cymbal that was HAND HAMMERED in Turkey.

This is one of the nicest dark crash cymbals you will hear! Guaranteed! 

Hand hammered. Responsive.  VERY dark.  Definitely SMOKEY sounding and organic. LOW in pitch. ORGANIC. And very complex-especially for a 16". 

THAT is this rare 16"!

Obviously this Istanbul Mehmet 16" MC Jazz Crash 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, pop, rock and ANYTIME you need a semi-dry, semi-complex, Hand Hammered THIN CRASH. 

$345??  For a non-hand hammered 16"??? $289 for a big box store regular-ass K???

Get this darker and more organic beauty for HALF THE PRICE!!!

You NEVER see these beauties out in the wild. This ain't Big Box store Guitar Center fodder.

Do yourself a favor and grab this RARE AMAZING Condition Hand Hammered Complex and DARK ONY 958 gram Istanbul Mehmet 16" MC Jazz Crash.
