GLOWING! AND THIN! 

AND IT WON'T COST YOU $570 LIKE IT'S NON-HAND HAMMERED K "CONSTANTINOPLE" COUNTERPART!

And dig the surface hammering of this beauty!! Gorgeous!! Rippled all over the place! 

Mehmet makes a few "Nostalgia" lines, the 50s is described by them as:

"Dark, woody stick definition, bigger and sharper bell than the 70's, umbrella type profile.

Excellent vintage sound reminiscent of the legendary 50's Turkish jazz ride."

Basically this version is overall more COMPLEX sounding with more of that Hand Hammered deliciousness floating around and it has a slightly larger rounded over bell. 

And this specific 21" Nostalgia has a bit more smoothness and mellowness to it, it's not uber dark or uber trashy, it's very well balanced for the 50s series but overall fairly complex sounding compared to their other Nostalgias-as promised.

Weighing in at a lovely and pretty damn thin 2122 grams, this Mehmet plays like a great dark, Semi-Complex Thin WARM Ride.  Again, it's more mellow than some of its uber complex brethren. The tone is still fairly and organic and warm, but it has an added gene of mellowness to it. 

This particular one borrowed a cup of airy softness, nothing glaring here, just a smidge of airy, lightness creeping through all that hand hammered love. 

And yes, at only 2122 grams, this Mehmet is definitely CRASHABLE. When you crash on this beauty you get an ocean of overtones swimming about-compliments of that umbrella-style profile. 

And this 21" would a perfect candidate for rivets if you're so inclined.

Light Left Side Ride. Thin Main Ride. Big 21" Smooth, Complex Crash - whatever you decide this Mehmet is a WORKHORSE Cymbal. 

You can use this MEHMET 21" Nostalgia 50s Ride 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. This 21" in amazing for rock...and pop, funk, fusion, acoustic and singer songwriter gigs, and definitely session work.

$570 for the non-hand hammered K Cons?????

This Istanbul really IS Hand Hammered. AND it's in IMMACULATE SHAPE in the BAG!!  Semi-complex and warm, and still crashable! 

WHY NOT SAVE MONEY AND PLAY SOMETHING UNIQUE????

HARDLY ANYONE HAS THIS GORGEOUS 21" ISTANBUL!!  It's a beauty!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this GLOWING and wonderfully smooth sounding, slightly complex, ONLY 2122 gram Istanbul MEHMET NOSTALGIA 50s SERIES 21" Ride.
