These are pretty rare, haven't seen them around at all. I've put them on Reverb for $200 + $50 shipping, but DFO always gets a discount :)
$150 + $50 shipping CONUS.

Hand-hammered 14" hi-hat cymbals from Turkish Cymbals Handmade in Istanbul, excellent condition. Brilliant finish. Cuts very well.
I moved on to a pair of 18" AA Sick Hats (if you know you know). These are great but I am into trashy sounds (hhx o-zone, aero, legacy o-zone, etc.) lately.

Here's an extended recording of them with my jazz combo. They are very versatile and I can't imagine a situation where they wouldn't blend in. Love the dynamic range. Just wish they were trashier and even darker.

Here's a video of someone else's pair compared to HHX Fusion Hats. Not my video but my hats are very similar.
