OU DON'T NEED ME TO TELL YOU WHAT THIS IS!!

IN THE ANNALS OF DRUM HISTORY TONY WILLIAMS STANDS AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN.  HIS CYMBAL TONE IS PERHAPS THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER IN HISTORY!!

ISTANBUL MEHMET SET OUT TO DUPLICATE THAT INIMITABLE TONE AND THEY CERTAINLY DID A GREAT JOB - ALL WITH THE HELP OF TONY'S ACTUAL CYMBALS AND THE BLESSING OF TONY'S WIFE, COLLEEN WILLIAMS!!

Offered up for your immense delight is this ULTRA RARE, wonderfully DARK and THIN, Istanbul Mehmet Tony Williams Tribute CRASH that is in ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND CLEAN Condition and comes IN THE MEHMET BAG!  Check out the pictures! There are 

NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this amazing 18"! It's in GREAT SHAPE!  It's been played to record the sound file - that's IT!! This 18" could easily pass as NEW! 

 

And check out the close-ups, the hand hammering is gorgeous and gives this 18" a hand crafted waviness - like the Ks of yore. 

Here's Mehmet's take on these beauties:

"Just slightly larger than 18”, the Crash has a crack in the body and a smaller crack at the edge. Mysteriously, however, there is no discernible buzz or noise from these cracks. The crack in the body does, however, act as an in-built ‘attenuator’ accelerating the decay of the crash. These sonic characteristics have been replicated through a careful combination of additional hammering and specific lathing."

This Crash is exceptional!!! The time and effort put into this 18" is immediately apparent with the first strike.  And now it's your job to put the crack in it - lovingly, of course! 

 

Weighing in at a glorious and wonderfully THIN 1283 grams this 18" Mehmet plays like an amazing semi-complex, overall SMOOTH, wonderfully DARK sounding, Thin Crash. The tone hints of darkness and is still glowingly warm and also undeniably SMOOTH!! The decay is medium to medium fast - compliments of the thinner weight and aged vibe. 

 

When you ride lightly on this 18", the stick attack is subtle and controlled, and overall very responsive. This 18" makes a terrific Light Ride when played with a soft, light touch - it sings at low volumes and you can draw out darkness and definition!  

One of the nicest Crashes on the market, period!

Dark. Medium Low in pitch. Semi-complex with a smooth and even finish. Crashable. Light Ride-able. Euphonic with no harshness at all, and all with a fantastic hand hammered subtle complex liveliness! 

There ya' go! 

You can use this MEHMET Tony Williams Crash 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. It would be amazing for mellow rock...and pop, funk, fusion, acoustic and singer songwriter gigs, and definitely session and studio work.

AND THESE beauties are EXTREMELY HARD TO FIND IN THE WILD!  Especially a rogue 18"! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this RARE and COLLECTIBLE ISTANBUL MEHMET TONY WILLIAMS TRIBUTE 18" Crash in THE BAG...AND HANG ON TO IT!!!  

THIS 1283 gram 18" is a felicitous tribute to the master!
