I am happy to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on these Turkish Queens! ONLY PLAYED FOR THE VIDEO!! That is all! 

Dammit do these 14s" sound terrific. Very musical. VERY dark and complex with a lovely dryness! 

 

 I know, I know!!  Who the hell is Kirkor Kucukyan?  

 

Well, apparently he was Mehmet's mentor, and that means he must have worked at the ORIGINAL Zildjian Istanbul K factory back in the day in Istanbul!!  

Just like Mehmet did!! 

 

As you can see, these gorgeous MASSIVE 14s" have a lightly lathed surface. And they are heavily Hand Hammered. The weight of these 14s"" is a pleasant  1004 and 1192 grams and they play like amazing Dry, DARK MASSIVE 14s" that are actually pretty complex when struck.  With New Beat styles weights they offer a terrific CHICK tone! 

 

The stick definition is articulate on these HihatsThey're dark, and low pitched but still a bit clean and the wash is VERY DRY, FOCUSED & CONTROLLED when opened but still has that slight complex Hand Hammered vibe.  

The overall tone is dark and very organic, it has shades of dryness however it actually has a robust fullness when laid into - they're magnificent for laying down FAT GROOVES!! 

Obviously these dark, dry Istanbul Mehmet Kirkor Kucukyan 14" Tribute Hihats are spectacular for jazz and blues and its dark, organic nature makes ballads bleed, and sows soulful seeds. And if you already have a bright and full hihats, these 14s"  will round out your funk, fusion, folk, and even pop and rock rigs. Use it anytime you need a great SEMI-DRY, Dark, organic Turkish tone that's has a light complexity to it!  

$570 for the K Cons?

$370 for a regular ass New Beats??

These 14s" really ARE HAND HAMMERED!! And they're exceptionally  musical! It's they're IMMACULATE CONDITION AND IT'S EXCEEDINGLY RARE! 

Play something unique! This Istanbul kills the Zildjian!  I've never seen another pair!!
