That's the way to do it! That's how I replaced all my cymbals on my kit to Turkish. All 8 of them!I couldn't refuse another one at these prices! I picked up the Mehmet Legend ride in 19", and it just arrived ahead of all of this predicted hail.
It came with the usual Amazon Hail-Mary packaging, though this was also in a bag (taped), and a thick one at that, and also with a wad of paper. Not the worst I've seen.
The picture depicted rivets, which were not present on this cymbal. But, I suppose that's easily remedied or circumvented. It's nice to customize these things anyway.
More importantly, it weighs in at a svelte 1680 grams! It's also VERY close to one of my favorite ride sounds: that on Carolyn Leonhart's 2002 recording of "That Way", played by Billy Drummond, I think.
If this is the case, his was an old 50s K, 20", if he was using the same cymbals cited in his MD spread a few years earlier. Which makes sense.
Anyway, many thanks for sharing these deals so I could get some nice Turkish pies while the iron was hot!
Can't beat it, all pro level stuff for little $$.
