  • Here's a glorious pair of DARK sounding Prototype 15s” that you will not find. One-off pair that sounds incredible! 

  • Dark, semi-low-pitched, organic with a hint of raw complexity with a fantastic CHICK tone. 

  • Take a look at the craftsmanship:

    The Top Cymbal of these massive 15” one-offs has the craftsmanship similar to the famous Turk Series - raw, unlathed, heavily hand-hammered, however, it has a Brilliant Finish and finely Lathed Brilliant Bell. While the underside is FULLY LATHED and has a raw, unlathed bell! Genius! 

  • The end result: a pair of massive, Turk style meets  Traditional Style Hihats with the perfect blend of Raw meets Lathed.  Organic, dry attack with a light, warm hissssss when opened - compliments of the Traditional Finish bottom. Fully opened creates a dark sloshy tone - not at all harsh. 

  • Weighing in at Thin Top 906 grams and Medium Heavy 1380 grams, these huge 15s” sound magnificent when splashed together with your foot, opened or closed.  They offer the time-honored New Beat style CHICK. 

  • Unique, dark, medium-lower pitched, organic and fairly controlled with a short decay for big 15s". Exceptionally musical.

  • Perfect for low volume to medium loud.  All genres. 

  • Immaculate condition; no big company offers anything as thin as these hand-crafted 15s”.

  • Hell, Not even Istanbul offers these!!!
