The Hamer Series from Istanbul Mehmet is a stunning new series of cymbals which were debuted at The NAMM Show 2018 earlier this year. The Hamer Series has been named aptly due to the large hammer hits which make for a prominent feature on the cymbals within this series. The large hammer marks on these cymbals skew the sound just enough to result in a quick decay which allows for punchy, concise sound every time. This quality is perfect for accenting particular notes and beats within a composition.
From classic crashes to selected speciality crashes such as the Istanbul Mehmet 16" Hamer Flange Crash and Istanbul Mehmet 18" Hamer Split Crash, hi-hats to warm and dry rides, there's a cymbal for every drummer, every occasion and for every composition. Take a look at the videos below to get a better feel for what Hamer really sounds like.
All of the cymbals from Istanbul Mehmet are created using traditional cymbal making techniques and are handcrafted to perfection and this is another stunning example of the high quality that oozes from Istanbul Mehmet cymbals.
Hamer is making absolute waves in every and any drumming circle you can think of and we honestly cannot blame you drummers for getting excited about this series it is one impressive series and with Istanbul Mehmet as creators you know you're in for a unique quality of cymbal that will certainly withstand anything you have to throw at them!
