Here's a great pair of HARD TO FIND HAND HAMMERED hats that descend from the Agop Mel Lewis Family Tree.

AND THEY ARE THE LATEST OFFERINGS!!!  AND THEY'RE MASSIVE 16s"!! 

YES, SUPER DARK, CRISP, MASSIVE 16s"!! 

The Mehmet Legends are basically the Agop Mel Lewises, and the Legend DRYs are lathed like an Agop SE. ..

The good news is that while a pair of machine made Zildjian K Constantinoples will cost you $570, and the K LIGHT 16s" cost $550!!

These exceptionally CLEAN, DARK AND VERY CRISP actually  HAND HAMMERED beauties cost 

ABOUT DAMN HALF OF THAT!!!

DARK, CRISP, ARTICULATE, STRONG CHICK AND IN MASSIVE 16s" THAT ARE IN THE BAG!! That is these beauties! And damn near NO ONE actually has them!  They're delight to play too. A lot of fun, and they CUT nicely!

Offered up for you immense delight is this beautiful pair of NEW TO THE CATALOG, Handmade Istanbul Mehmet 16" Legend DRY Hihats that are in IMMACULATE Condition and IN THE BAG! Check out the pictures! 

 

There are NO

Nicks, cracks, dings, or dents on these HUGE 16"s! They're PERFECT - they've only been played for the VIDEO! 

Mehmet describes these as:

 "The new Legend Dry cymbals have the same profile and weight as Legend Cymbals, but the shallow lathing and hammered bell results more complex and drier sound."

 

The gram weights are 1267 for the top and 1538 for the bottom cymbal.

What I really dig about these handmade Mehmets is that they are true to old school Turkish construction and design. These hihats are NOT machine made - you can hear and feel the unique craftsmanship.  

 

Look at the bell - it looks like a Paiste Dark Energy! 

And the sound of these Legends hihats is wonderfully organic. They are VERY CRISP,  dark and semi-DRY sounding and Semi-Complex (which is not an easy combination to find.) And being the MASSIVE 16s" these beauties yield a terrific freight-train-a-comin' MASSIVE TONE! 

DARK. Medium low in pitch. VERY Crisp. Very articulate. Fairly dry-compliments of that top lathing pattern.  Overall controlled with a vibrant and STRONG CHICK. Incredible for laying down luscious,  FAT grooves with the added musicality of truly Hand Hammered hihats!  

THAT is these Rare Legend Dark 16" Hihats!

Obviously this Legend series is popular among jazz players, however these hats are certainly not limited to this genre. Their FAT tone is fantastic for any music that calls for taste and a bit of soul. And being the MASSIVE 16s" they excel in rock and pop too! 

Why the hell pay $570 for the non-hand hammered Zildjian K Constantinoples!!  Or even $550 for the K Lights!!

These beauties really ARE HAND HAMMERED and you can ACTUALLY SAVE A TON OF MONEY!

AND THEY"RE MUCH DARKER THAN THE K LIGHTS, GUARANTEED!! 

And they're IN IMMACULATE CONDITION TOO, IN THE BAG!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab these definitely Hard to Find, HAND HAMMERED Semi-dry and dark, VERY CRISP sounding HUGE 16" Istanbul Mehmet LEGEND DRY Hihats!! 

AND HANG ONTO THEM!!! You hardly EVER SEE these beauties and they're worth it!
