This 22" sounds like it was plucked off a 1950s recording!  Super dark and paper thin!

It's only 1613 grams and it's new in the bag!

Offered up for your immense pleasure is this UNIQUE, Gorgeous DARK sounding, PAPER THIN, Hand Hammered Masterwork unlathed top and lathed underside PROTOTYPE  22" China Cymbal that is in BRAND NEW Condition and in the bag! Check out the pictures! 

 

I am happy to report that there are NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this Turkish Queen. NOTHING! It's brand new in the bag!!!

If you are not familiar with Masterworks, this is a great one to start with. Super dark, smoky, exceptionally COMPLEX,  and extremely responsive -  it's as Old school sounding as you will find. Very musical. 

As you can see the top of this Prototype is golden and fully lathed and heavily Hand Hammered like a Jazz Master or while the underside is RAW and unlathed like a Natural or TURK series.  The LIP is HUGE and measures a MASSIVE 4"!   Ripe for the striking! 

Reminiscent of the Zildjian Oriental Classic 22"! 

Weighing in at a WONDERFULLY THIN 1613 grams this Masterwork Prototype plays like a KILLER DARK, ULTRA COMPLEX, MEDIUM LOW PITCHED Thin to Paper Thin China. The tone is DARK, very EXOTIC, gong-like, organic and fairly low pitched - especially compared to any Zildjian china. The attack is sharp and the sustain is medium to medium fast for a big 22".  This 22" has a great spread to it but it is anchored in the low end.

And it is wonderfully COMPLEX sounding! This beauty sounds like one of those old timey Zildjian Chinas from the 40s or 50s that are impossible to find! 

Perfect for alternate ride - a la Mel Lewis, especially with that RAW TURK vibe underside - it dries it out a pinch!! 

ULTRA COMPLEX, Dark, hand hammered, Medium low, quick attack, super trashy, organic, nasty, medium  decay, wonderfully musical, sinister. Sounds like a cymbal that was made 70 years ago!  

THAT is THIS PROTOTYPE 22".   AND IT'S A HELL OF A LOT OF FUN TO PLAY!! The lip is HUGE! 

NO BIG COMPANY MAKES ANYTHING LIKE THIS! 

 

This Hand Hammered  Masterwork Prototype 22" is a no brainer for blues, ballads, trio work, soul.....and of course JAZZ. However the fun doesn't stop there. It makes a magnificent Exotic Fast China for funk, fusion, pop, country, R&B, indie rock, world music, and even classic rock. Perfect anytime you need a KILLIN' Turkish Hand Hammered organic, DARK, complex, well-balanced China that cuts. 

AND THIS CYMBAL ACTUALLY IS HAND HAMMERED.

WHY PAY $380 for an 22" Zildjian Swish Knocker that plays like a rock ride next to this beauty! 

Hell the puny 18" China High is $285!!!  That's ridiculous! 

This cymbal destroys those! Guaranteed! And it's NEW! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this UNIQUE, SUPER FAT LIP, LATHED TOPUN/LATHED UNDERSIDE,  PAPERTHIN ONLY 1613 gram Hand Hammered Turkish Masterwork 22" CHINA.

It's one of the nicest BIGGER Chinas you will find!!
