  • Here’s an extremely hard-to-find ISTANBUL TURK 22”!

  • A factory SWISH! I’ve never had one of these.

  • Raw, unlathed, Hand Hammered  HUGE 22” Istanbul Mehmet SWISH 22 - you never see these factory Swishes. 

  • Gorgeous low profile with a subtle sweeping China Swish shape. 

  • At a THIN 1796 grams this massive 22” is organic, earthen, dark, dry with a semi-complex “aaaaaahhhhhh” tone.  Very responsive compliments of the thinner weight, quick, biting attack when needed with a fairly quick decay.

  • Stunning craftsmanship with copper - sienna hues, l rife with Hand Hammering throughout.

  • Perfect as an alternate Ride - a la Mel Lewis but more dry and organic sounding.

  • More like Mel Lewis meets Jack DeJohnette.

  • This is a stand out 22”.  No big company offers a Swish like this!

  • Immaculate condition. Played for the video.
