nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this Turkish Queen. It's a beauty!! EXTREMELY CLEAN!!!

This cymbal basically LOOKS BRAND NEW!!! Check out the close-ups. Beautiful hammering on this one! 

It has ONLY been played for the video! 

This particular Sultan is stamped "Jazz Ride", which Mehmet says means:

"Hot, dark, controlled sound, smooth and low bell.  Jazz Ride has smoother and lower bell than regular model."

As you can see, this Sultan Series is Half-Lathed and Half-Unlathed and Heavily Hammered throughout. The underside in fully Lathed.  A gorgeous, hand crafted instrument! 

Here's Mehmets take on the Sultan cymbals as a whole:

"Sultan cymbals are a combination of the Traditional and the Turk Series. The sound has unique brilliant characteristics of the Traditional cymbal sounds and the dry & woody sound of the unlathed Turk cymbal series. The top of the cymbal has an unlathed cup producing a strong, compact bell sound and an unlathed concentric circle on the bow reducing overtone and drying the sound. The bottom of the cymbal is completely unlathed.

Mellow Tone. Great Stick Definition. Controlled Overtones."

And that is accurate!  

Weighing in at a lovely 2338 grams, this Mehmet 22" plays like a Dark and fairly CONTROLLED Thin Ride. I would not call this cymbal super dry (like some Turk Rides), although the wash is fairly focused,compliments of the unlathed portions. The pitch is medium-low to low. The bell measures a generous 5.5" and is Unlathed and provides a mellower "DING" tone. You can draw different tones out of this cymbal when playing on the different surfaces....lathed or unlathed. When you ride this cymbal at the outer edge, it really opens up and makes for a great THIN DARK Crash/Ride.

The overall tone is DARK, medium low in pitch, slightly SMOKEY, very warm and organic for a Sultan, and fairly focused and controlled. Dry-like for the series.

A beautiful sounding Hand Hammered 22". And it's literally the price of a boring ass Zildjian A PING Ride! 

You can use this Mehmet Sultan Jazz Ride for whatever your heart's content. Its great semi-dark tone is perfect for jazz, blues, funk, fusion, country, and pop. And its Crash/Ride capabilities make it a welcomed addition to any rock or pop, country or medium loud setting. 

THIS ONE IS IN AMAZING CONDITION IN THE BAG!!! It's a stunning 22" both looking and sounding. 

$570 on a machine made Zildjian? $485 for a big box store garden variety K???

SAVE YOUR MONEY AND PLAY SOMETHING UNIQUE!! You hardly ever see this 22" beauty in the wild!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this gorgeous sounding, SUPER CLEAN in the bag, DARK and controlled 2338 gram Hand Hammered Istanbul MEHMET 22" SULTAN JAZZ Ride. 

It's a versatile cymbal.
