I have a 20 Bosphorus Masters, a 20 HHX ride rehammered by H. Stine, and a Istanbul Mehmet 70's ride. I also have a C&G 20"....
As I was reading through the orgional question I was thinking of my 20" 70's Istanbul Mehmet. I was shocked to read down to your post and see someone else had one as well!! Thought that was cool....not nearly as many of us Mehmet players as Agop.

I'm a fan of the Mehmets. I have Legend Dark and Origin Dark cymbals in my stable. Trying to find deals on some Nostalgias or even a set of Tony Williams tributes, but in this market deals are hard to come by. Maybe in a few years the whole supply and demand thing will get back to its regularly scheduled program.

I am a fan of them as well. I had a beautiful set of Mehmets back around 2006-2007 (or so) and stupidly sold them. Not really kicking my self these days, but it was one of my less intelligent moves when it comes to gear.
