Comments about Istanbul Mehmet Traditional Series Splash:
I received this splash today.I had friends' on vacation pick it up in Istanbul,Turkey.They paid 55 Dolls'!Shows' what the mark-up is on cymbals'!
I compared the Istanbul 8" to an 8" "A.Zildjian",a 8" "Sabian,Neil Pert" and a 8" Pulse(Wuhan) of about the same pitch!The Pulse is more trashy and Oriental sounding,but not that far from the Istanbul splash.The"A.Zildjian" has the best even,bell-tone of all the splashs'!The "Sabian,Neil Pert" 8" sounds' like a "K.Zildjian"(Very pretty splash)!
The Istanbul has a nice bell-tone,even harmonic's and good splash-sound!I would call this cymbal more of the old K.Zildjian sound(somewhat dark)!I am pleased with it's sound and would recomend it to any drummer who likes fine cymbals'!
