Who’s would take on HameR!? This imposing bruiser is no stranger to a fracas, a donnybrook, or any other old-timey word for a fight. But he also has a very tender, expressive side that belies his scars and spikes. Imagine if ‪Sid Vicious‬ and ‪Ella Fitzgerald‬ had a child... and then someone pounded that child in the face with a claw hammer. That's Hamer—a versatile troublemaker who bawls during Love, Actually and likes fisticuffs. What a guy!!! . . #ist#istanbulet #istanbulmehmetcymbals #istanbul #istanbulcymbals #cymbals #handmade #drums

The most celebrated Ride cymbal in history? Undoubtedly. Long regarded as the epitome of the ideal old Turkish cymbal Ride sound. Used by Tony on all the Quintet recordings up to ‘Sorcerer’, after which it was forced in to retirement due to increasing fragility, this magnificent cymbal now bears the scars of the most intense Ride cymbal playing in history. Drilled out repeatedly in several places over the years, to halt the spread of cracks, with a piece flung off at the edge under his furious assault, Tony, still refused to surrender his prize. Despite and ‘because of’, these historic characteristics, this cymbal retains its utterly remarkable sound and all the characteristics for which it became so famous. Its unique combination of dry, clean stick sound, with complex, dark, orchestral overtones, presented the greatest challenge to the Istanbul Mehmet artisans, and they met it. #ist#istanbulet #istanbulmehmetcymbals #istanbul #istanbulcymbals #cymbals #handmade #drums #TonyWilliams
