Here's a VERY HARD TO FIND GORGEOUS, DARK, SEMI-DRY CYMBAL!! I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE SMALLER, CONTROLLED 18" SIZE BEFORE! 

Vezirs are fantastic cymbals - half Traditional, half TURK. 

$470 That is how much a new Zildjian K Constantinople Ride will set you back. And that's the Guaranteed Lowest Price too! Of course if you are on a shoe string budget, you can get the K Custom Dark Ride for $400!!

 

Now check out HARD TO FIND VEZIR actually HAND HAMMERED!! And VERY DARK! Look at the underside, gorgeous copper and gold hues swirled. 

Posted for your immense pleasure is this IMMACUALTE Condition Hard to Find, Hand Hammered  Istanbul MEHMET 18" VEZIR JAZZ Ride that is Perfect in the BAG. Check out the pictures! I am thrilled to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this Hand Hammered wonder. It's AMAZINGLY CLEAN!!! Its only been played for the video, 

And of course this Istanbul has MEHMET'S Signatures on the underside.

As you can see, the top surface of this cymbal is extremely heavily hand hammered and lathed however the underside is UNLATHED and that helps rein in the wash and promote attack. The the Vezir philosophy. 

Weighing in at a lovely 1611 grams, this Mehmet Vezir plays like a great Medium Thin DARK Ride. The attack is VERY prominent, especially for an 18", and the the wash is dark and fairly controlled, definitely organic and complex---compliments of the Hand Hammering, however it remains controlled because of the unlathed underside and the smaller 18" size.

This particular Mehmet sounds reminiscent of a Zildjian Istanbul K of Medium Thin weight - that is the vibe. Organic, earthy. Subtly complex.

And this would be an excellent choice for rivets if you dig that Peter Erskine Left Side Dry Ride vibe.

Obviously this Istanbul Mehmet 18" VEZIR JAZZ Ride is a no brainer for blues, ballads, trio work, folk, soul...and jazz. However the fun doesn't stop there. You can use it for funk, fusion, country, punk, pop, definitely rock and ANYTIME you need a great, dark, semi-dry, old school, organic Turkish Hand Hammered Tone.  

$470?? $400???  Hell a big box store 18" K Crash is $335!

Ummmmm...this one really IS Hand Hammered. And you cannot even FIND this beauty! It's a RARE ONE! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this Top of the Line actually Hand Hammered, dark and semi-dry Istanbul Mehmet 18" Vezir JAZZ Ride.

And hang onto it. It's MINT and in the BAG!!
