New Istanbul Mehmet Flat Ride At 2011 PASIC

Istanbul Mehmet At 2011 PASIC

Istanbul Mehmet

Our first stop on Thursday was the the Istanbul Mehmet booth, where the Turkish cymbal company showed off a new flat ride. It was striking to see exactly how thin the cymbal was – our booth tour guide Bulent was able to grab either side of the cymbal with both hands and easily bend the edges upward. This thin weight lends a particularly dark sound to the flat ride, which is saying something, since flat rides traditionally have a dark sound.
