Cymbals painstakingly recreated to the specs of the iconic Tony Williams. Source the essence.

Tony Williams Tribute Cymbal Limited Edition Set features 22" Ride, 18" Crash and 14" Hi-Hats, together with deluxe leather cymbal bag, a selection of rare Tony Williams photographs and a Certificate of Authenticity. Limited to 250 serialized sets and this one is the last one from Istanbul Mehmet Cymbals Factory.

Created as faithful replicas of the now iconic cymbals made famous by Tony Williams on the recordings of the 60s era Miles Davis Quintet, these exclusive new cymbals will be made available initially as limited edition numbered sets.

When Miles Davis invited the 17-year-old Tony Williams to join his new Quintet, jazz drumming would never be the same. Tony set a new standard with his playing and cymbals. The Istanbul Mehmet Company was granted exclusive access to the very same cymbals, made in Istanbul in the late 50™s, which were used by Tony Williams on the Miles Davis Quintet™s historic recordings.

Hand-carried to Istanbul by Colleen Williams, Tony™s wife, great attention to detail was paid during their creation, with every aspect of the cymbals being scrupulously measured, weighed, gauged and factored to ensure that the new, handmade cymbals be as close in sound as possible to the originals. Istanbul Mehmet drew from their rich archives the original and now ˜antique™ cup dies, the actual dies used to form the bells on the originals, and used them in order to perfectly recreate the bell shapes on the tribute models.

The set consists of a 22" ride with legendary dry, clean stick articulation and orchestral, dark overtones. The 14" hi-hats produce a gorgeous "chick" sound and sublime, signature stick articulation. An 18" crash delivers warm, fast attack and features a signature crack that acts as a built-in "attenuator" to accelerate decay.

Available now, the Tony Williams Tribute Cymbal Limited Edition sets includes a deluxe leather cymbal bag.
