Yes, it's really nice! What size do you think it is? 20"? And it seems that he's got some rivets in there?

Yes, it’s a 20" with what looks like 2 rivets. He also had a 22" Turk that you can see in the later trio video from 1986. I prefer the 20, though.

All of Jack’s riveted cymbals that I’ve seen have the holes for rivets drilled really close to the edges - less than a half inch, probably.

Interesting, thanks for the info!

I happen to have a 20" istanbul agop turk (without rivets). Maybe I need to try with a sizzler or something...

This is still my favorite unlathed Istanbul vibe:

Agree. And, man, he can PLAY it! Would love to get my hands on a (20-22) presplit Turk. Any guess on weight? I’ve seen/heard 20” around 2730-28xx-ish.

Or, if not presplit, something close to these (last must have a weird profile):
