Check out this UNBELIEVABLY HARD TO FIND, actually Hand Hammered Beauty Queen...and actually from the former Constantinople.

AND THIS PARTICULAR 20" FLAT IS VERY DARK FOR THE SERIES AND THIS ERA!! 

I believe there are only a HANDFUL of these Danny Gottlieb Flat Rides floating around...I've ONLY SEEN one other in 20 years! 

Offered up for your pleasure is this SUPER RARE, beautifully DARK, Hand Hammered, Earlier Istanbul PRE-SPLIT 20" DANNY GOTTLIEB Signature FLAT Ride that is in EXCELLENT Condition. Check out the pictures! There are

NO

Nicks, cracks, dings, or dents on this Rare 20".  It's in GREAT SHAPE with a nice patina that has formed. This 20" Flat has aged gracefully. It has a gorgeous played-in vibe, with a bit of shimmer to it!

As you can see the Danny Gottlieb designation has been cleaned away by Father Time, but I checked with Istanbul Agop and they confirmed  that this is indeed the PRE-SPLIT Danny Gottlieb Signature Flat. They made a few of these cymbals for him specifically and a few made it out into the wild! 

Weighing in at a lovely 2662 grams this Hand Hammered 20" plays like a GORGEOUS, GOLDEN, SURPRISINGLY DARK sounding, Medium Flat Ride. The tone is remarkably dark, warm, mellow and just all around musical. As many of you may know, the absence of a bell gives this Flat Ride an increased stick definition with a CONTROLLED tone. No matter how hard you lay into this Flat, the wash and volume NEVER eclipse the initial attack. Therein lies the beauty of this Istanbul Flat Ride.

And of course it is adorned with the Agop and Mehmet signatures.

If you're looking for a  DARK, MELLOW, RESPONSIVE, UNIQUE FLAT RIDE THAT BLURS WHEN STRUCK, THEN YOUR SEARCH IS OVER!

THE PITCH IS LOW TOO!! This 20" easily sounds like a 22"!! 

AND YOU LITERALLY NEVER, EVER SEE THIS DANNY GOTTLIEB CYMBAL ANYWHERE!!

Obviously this Hand Hammered Istanbul PRE-SPLIT 20" Danny Gottlieb Flat 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, pop, rock and ANYTIME you need a great, WARM, fairly smokey, dark, old school, Turkish Hand Hammered, Flat Ride Sizzle tone that's remains controlled. 

$475 for a garden variety machine-made Zildjian???/??

Ummmmm...this one really IS Hand Hammered. And it's exceedingly rare!! 

Why the hell pay more for a straight out of the big box store catalog piece??

So do yourself a favor and take grab this SUPER RARE, GLOWING 2662 gram, dark and shimmering Hand Hammered Istanbul Agop Mehmet Pre-Split 20" Danny Gottlieb Flat Ride.

 

And hang onto it. It will age gracefully.
