The Istanbul Mehmet Sultan 16'' Thin Crash Cymbal is a high quality crash cymbal from Istanbul Mehmet, featuring a unique design with concentric circles of lathing and hand hammering marks. The Sultan series is a combination of the brilliant, unique and classic tonal characteristics from Istanbul Mehmet's Traditional series, and the dry, woody sound from their Turk series. The unlathed concentric circle on the bow of the cymbal provides the cymbal with a dryer tone overall, as it reduces the overtones and shortens the sustain of the tone. The unlathed bell produces a strong, contained bell sound with a fast, aggressive response. In addition to the distinctive appearance, the cymbal provides a controlled tone with wide dynamic capabilities, allowing drummers to play expressively with strong results. The crash is made thin, allowing it to produce brighter, trashier sounds than its thicker counterparts. Despite this, the cymbal still delivers a loud, full-sounding crash with a great balance of frequencies, making it ideal for a range of drumming styles and genres. Handmade in Istanbul, Turkey using classic manufacturing techniques, the Istanbul Mehmet Sultan Thin Crash Cymbals are ideal for any drummer or musician who wants to transform their setup with the distinct sounds of Istanbul Mehmet cymbals.
