THAT ACTUALLY IS HAND HAMMERED AND YOU SURE AS HELL WON'T FIND AT A BIG BOX STORE.

Gorgeous craftsmanship on this one!  AND IT'S IN THE BAG!! 

It's both VERY DARK and complex.  A wonderful combination!!!!

ONLY 1361 grams!! Pretty DAMN THIN!!   This is one of the NICEST DARK CRASHES I HAVE!! 

Posted for your immense pleasure is this DARK & COMPLEX sounding Istanbul Mehmet 18" MC JAZZ Crash that is in IMMACULATE 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 PERFECT!! 

So clean in fact that it basically LOOKS NEW! And check out all the hand hammering - beautiful! 

Hand Hammered all over and with a reddish hue raw bell. 

And check out the sparser lathing on this 18". This non-traditional lathing contributes to the slightly drier vibe, however it STILL maintains an wonderful 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"

 

Weighing in at a THIN 1361 grams this Mehmet plays like a Thin Dark Complex Crash. It's not excessively dry but as they promise, it definitely has a nice, organic tone. The edges are slightly BENDABLE! It, of course, produces a COMPLEX Turkish Wash that you would expect from a cymbal that was HAND HAMMERED in Turkey.

Again, what's nice about this specific 18" is that although it is drier it does have an amazing spread to it yielding an overall complex vibe. 

Hand hammered. Dark. Medium Low in pitch. Organic. Smokey. Responsive.  And definitely complex.  

THAT is this 18"!! 

And with a light touch you can easily use this cymbal and a small combo DARK RIDE!! It's dry enough to get a very nice stick attack off the top. 

And this 18" MC JAZZ is damn hard to find too! You rarely see these crashes in the wild! 

Hardly anyone actually HAS THIS CYMBAL!! 

Obviously this Istanbul Mehmet 18" 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 Dark, complex, smokey Hand Hammered THIN CRASH. 

$425??  For a non-hand hammered 18"???

$335 for a regular-ass big box K??

Why not actually play a UNIQUE instrument. And this beauty is way more complex than a machine made Zildjian - it just is! 

And NO ONE has these beauties. They're rare for sure! And it's IN THE BAG! 

Do yourself a favor and grab this IMMACULATE Condition, Hand Hammered, Complex and Dark, 1361 gram Istanbul Mehmet 18" MC Jazz Crash.
