The important thing is no one need spend $470 on a new machine made Zildjian K Constantinople!!! 

AND YOU NEED NOT SACRIFICE TONE!!!! Hell, you'll be augmenting tone! This SULTAN is amazing sounding! 

 

IT sounds LIKE A 22"!!   IT'S DARK, LOW, AND SEMI-DRY AND AT 1853 GRAMS IT'S STILL CRASHABLE!! 

Offered up for your enjoyment is this PERFECT CONDITION AND IN THE BAG ISTANBUL Mehmet 20" SULTAN JAZZ RIDE!!  Check out the pictures! As you can see there are

NO 

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this Turkish Queen. It's IMMACULATE and has only been played for the sound file!  

This cymbal basically LOOKS BRAND NEW!!! 

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.  The unlathed portions of this particular 20" has a more copper hue than others I've encountered.  Very cool looking!!!!

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 1853 grams, this Mehmet 20" 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 LOW. The bell measures a generous 5" and is Unlathed and provides a solid "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 Crash/Ride.

The overall tone is DARK, low in pitch, slightly SMOKEY, very warm and organic for a Sultan, and fairly focused and controlled.  AND at 1853 GRAMS it's VERY CRASHABLE!!! 

A beautiful sounding Hand Hammered 20". And it's literally the price of a Zildjian A 18"! 

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 IMMACULATE CONDITION AND IN THE BAG!!! 

$470 on a machine made Zildjian? $380 for a big box store garden variety K???

SAVE YOUR MONEY AND PLAY SOMETHING UNIQUE!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this gorgeous sounding, SUPER CLEAN, DARK and controlled 1853 gram Hand Hammered Istanbul MEHMET 20" SULTAN JAZZ Ride. 

It's a versatile cymbal.
