After some experimenting with a variety of on-line purchases - Anatolian, Istanbul Agop and Meinl Byzance - I finally settled on a new Bosphorus Master Vintage 20" ride, with an existing 21" Turk flat ride, and a Ferit series 16" crash and Master series 15" hats. Was able to trade 2 cymbals for the new one and got a gift of a pair wooden handle brushes too....
Did you not recently obtain a Byzance Club Ride? Did it not work for you?

My favorite cymbal I've ever owned is a 21" Bos Masters... just figured I'd add that!

I just added an Antique 19" medium crash! Perfect one cymbal cymbal maybe.
They gotta stop giving me all that overtime, or else some Antique 14" dark hats are going to wind up at my house too.
I do actually own one dud though, used from here or eBay, before I discovered the Amazon deals thread. It is a Turk 19" flat that truly is a pure manhole cover. They do exist

(trad flat b2290-po2381g 20" me) some of the flats are stick breakers; drape some twine with rivets pinched on and bet you change your mind. Half the Flats are on heavy side 1/2 aren't; sometimes we end with wrong flat lol try draping some rivets you won't stop playing it

JDA, I have tried it with a sizzle chain and still yet can't find any affection for that Turk 19" flat. Now on the other hand the 24" Turk flat that shipped free accidentally ((and scratched itself and the other in transit, (another story,)) is a definite winner.

ps what are the weights of those lovely hats?

910/1110
Traditional Dark Hats 14"
like new found on rVerb
b/o about 2 yrs ago
$144+ship+tax- $168.54 absolute steal/ can't think of a better hi hat I've ever owned everyday/never feel the weight play light/ cause it's close to 900 on the top/that's on the precipice of heavy/ but isn't ; ) beautful design. Like handbuilt perfect A's.
