Istanbul Mehmet's talented team of cymbal makers have earned a considerable amount of praise in the music industry. Although they're dedicated to a diverse range of styles and genres, Istanbul Mehmet heavy cymbals are the best choice for harder-hitting drummers. In fact, it's for this reason why their heavy cymbals are preferred by so many rockers and metalheads. If this sounds like you, then you couldn't have picked a better place to upgrade your current cymbal setup. Here, you'll find Istanbul Mehmet heavy cymbals ranging from rides, crashes and hi-hats to effect cymbals like Chinas and splashes.
A drum set simply isn't complete with a ride and hi-hat to keep the rhythm moving steady and forward, and Istanbul Mehmet offers heavy versions of both. Firstly, there's the top-selling Nostalgia 50s Ride. Boasting a large, sharp bell and producing a dark, fresh tone with a woody stick definition, this weighty cymbal delivers a vintage sound that's reminiscent of the classic 50s Turkish jazz rides. Then, you have the Carmine Appice Hi-Hat. Made in collaboration with Appice himself, these hefty hi-hats have all the projection you need to make your impressive talents fully realized by an audience. Istanbul Mehmet and Carmine also partnered on a crash; the Carmine Appice Crash Cymbal is available here in your choice of 18" and 20" diameters and boasts a warm, full tone with rapid decay.
With a little time spent here, you'll come across more than enough heavy cymbals to make every whack and thwack you deliver sound incredible. Be sure to also take a look at the Carmine Appice China and Splash Cymbals; like his aforementioned crash and hi-hats, both of these cymbals are everything you'd expect from a joint effort between to legendary names in the percussion world. A powerful drummer deserves a set of cymbals that can take a pounding through countless gigs and rehearsals - and for that, Istanbul Mehmet heavy cymbals are obvious winners.
