Istanbul Mehmet 50th Anniversary Carmine Appice Ride Cymbal - Signature Series
The 50th Anniversary Carmine Appice Ride cymbal is part of the Signature Series of cymbals from Istanbul Mehmet and if we do say so our ourselves the Signature Series is bursting with drummer collaborations that make for some super swanky cymbal sounds.
Designed in collaboration with American rock drummer and percussionist, Carmine Appice, this series was created with a view of delivering realistic rock cymbals that were bursting with power, projection and playability. Carmine shot to fame as the drummer and songwriter alongside the Rod Stewart Band, so when Carmine sets his mind to creating rock cymbals, you know he's going to deliver. Still as influential today as he was then, the Carmine Appice Series will not let you down, that we are sure of. This particular cymbal is the Istanbul Mehmet 22" Carmine Appice 50th Anniversary Ride and is constructed using a B20 bronze alloy, finished in a black coating. The sound this speciality signature cymbal produces as expected is powerful and loud but it's littered with warmth and clarity too.
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.
