A throwback to the old hand made Istanbul K's and early American A's. These cymbals have a unique hammering protocol - multiple different size and shape hammers are used throughout the process to mimic the traditional Turkish manufacturing style of 3-5 craftsmen who each do a portion of the work. Additionally, the lathing grooves have been matted down to mimic a surface-worn cymbal that has been played and handled over 50-100 years. A proprietary surface patina has been applied along with a matte sealer to enhance the "dull" surface. This cymbal is 2068 grams. Rivets available upon request!
