  • A harder to find series but worth the search when you do:

  • Istanbul Mehmet 50s NOSTALGIA 22” Ride.

  • The end of the road for glowing warm.  This thing makes a K Ride feel like a Z Ride. 

  • This beauty has all the golden glowing warmth of the famous Nostalgia Series but being the 50s version the bell is larger and rounded over giving it a hint more complexity than the standard nostalgia. 

  • And that falls right into line with the Hand Hammered 1950s Vintage Zildjians - like the Block Stamp logo.  And this 22” has that heritage. Golden glowing Hand Hammered tone but with the larger bell found on the 22s” from that era Zildjian.

  • 2316 grams. Terrific stick attack on top with a golden wash that remains mellow and controlled but has a pinch of complexity.  

  • Extremely crashable. Very warm. The great solid and large 6” bell for such a mellow cymbal. 

  • Perfect for any music - very quiet to loud settings - when you crash on the edge this 22” really opens up and can handle itself in louder gigs.  Great for jazz but not at all limited to jazz.

  • Amazing shape with no issues. Played lightly for the demo video.  A gorgeous Istanbul that is hard to find.
