$570!! That is how much a new Zildjian K Constantinople Ride will set you back. And that's the Guaranteed Lowest Price too!

Hell a regular ass humdrum Zildjian A Medium Ride is $380!!!! 

Now check out this Hand Hammered Beauty Queen and actually save a TON of money…and this 21" is MUCH DARKER and MORE SMOKY sounding that any K Cons!! And it's actually from the former Constantinople.

THIS ONE COMES FROM THE MEHMET JAZZ LINE!!! AND THIS IS ACTUALLY A RIDICULOUSLY GREAT SOUNDING THIN 21".

VERY DARK!! Lower pitched. Smoky and CRASHABLE! The Origin DARK series is one of the nicest series if you dig DARK and unlathed complex cymbals. 

Offered up for pleasure is this Gorgeous and completely Hand Hammered THIN ISTANBUL MEHMET 21" ORIGIN DARK Ride that is in AMAZING Condition and IN THE BAG. Check out the pictures! There are 

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this DRY smokey wonder.  It's in GREAT SHAPE!! VERY CLEAN!! Super CLEAN! It could easily pass as new! Beautiful. Completely Hand Made!! 

And this particular one has a stunning reddish, brown, copper hue to it that's beautiful! 

The Origin Series is a cousin to the Istanbul TURK series-the difference being the Origin Series is much THINNER and has a smaller bell for a bit more controlled overtones. Both series are famously unlathed and heavily Hand Hammered.  

You might even say this 21" is "Turk-ish".

Here's what Mehmet has to say about the Origin Dark line:

"Smaller cup with smooth profile. Light weight. With their unlathed, brushed vintage finish, these Origin Dark cymbals are as smooth, dark and washy as they look.

Smooth, Dark, Washy Overtones. Woody Stick Definitions."

Apparently "Washy" is now something you can see.  

Well, what you CAN see is this is clearly a THIN TURK with a smaller bell. Who doesn't love THAT STORY!!  

Weighing in at a wonderfully LIGHT 2034 grams (yes, this is a 21" we are speaking of), this Mehmet Origin plays like a THIN, super dark 21" ride.  It is slightly bendable.

What's fascinating about this specific 21" is that, as you can see, it is completely unlathed and raw and both sides. And it is heavily hand hammered. Classic Turk style. BUT this one is so damn THIN! Ahhhh...the joy! This 21" delivers lovely DRY stick definition with a DARK and ensuing wash.  This Origin Dark has the uncanny characteristic of being DRY AND COMPLEX and the same time. The wash is extremely DARK, organic smokey, and yes...complex. Plenty of overtones swimming about...but just for a moment. This THIN Origin Dark is DRY and has a quick decay-compliments of the thin constitution and unlathed raw surface. You get a great attack followed by a dark complex wash that gets out of the way quickly. It's killer. It does not muddy up your other tones. 

And this 21" would be a great candidate for rivets if you're looking for a dry sizzle ride!!!

And at this thin weight...

Crash away!

This is actually one of the nicest cymbal I have. Hands down! 

Obviously this Big Dry/Complex Istanbul Mehmet Origin Dark Ride is a no brainer for blues, ballads, 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 great, DRY, dark, old school, smokey Turkish Hand Hammered, THIN Crash Ride that's STILL Complex--even for just a moment. 

$570??For a big box store machine-made Zildjian?

$380 for a boring-ass Zildjian A??

Ummmmm...this one really IS Hand Hammered.  And it's infinitley DARKER than ANY ZILDJIAN!! 

And NO Zildjian K Cons is gonna be as smoky like this 21"! Save some damn money and play something unique!!!!

Do yourself a favor and grab this AMAZING Condition IN THE BAG THIN, ONLY 2034 gram Istanbul Mehmet 21" "TURK-ISH" Origin Dark Ride. 

And hang onto it. This one is exceptionally DARK sounding!
