Details: Sehzade series is one of Turkish Cymbals' most adventurous offerings. Its underside is lathed and heavly hammered. The upper surface is a combination of lathed and unlathed hammered circles. The large, high-profile bell is unlathed. The darker sides of the cymbal look like leopard skin. The effect of the lathed and unlathed surface is what makes this cymbal so special. When you hit the outer lathed surface, and the cymbal produces a spicy, dark ride sound with lots of energy. When the drum stick is moved to the unlathed section, the sound dries out, giving greater stick definition. The unlathed bell is dry and clear.... -Turkish Cymbals -Hand Cast, Hand Hammered, Hand Lathed. Peculiar hiss-tone that is high, sharp & piercing. Excellent for short, punctuated accents with an exotic atmosphere. For centuries, cymbals have been made in artisan workshops in Istanbul, Turkey, the acknowleged home of quality cymbal making. Cymbal alloys (most notably B20 alloys) have secret recipes passed through generations and each Turkish Cymbal is hand cast, rolled whilst hot, hammered by skilled artisans and tested to give the unique sound the Turkish Cymbals have, before being finished on a lathe.

Your sound is unique with Turkish Cymbals. Probably the finest cymbals on the planet.
