For customers residing in Japan
This is a set of two 16" pieces of K Zirjan, and by extension, the roots of the Zirjan company, produced in the former Constantinople (now Istanbul).
We assume that this was manufactured during the 1923-30 production period because of the MADE IN TUEKEY stamp.
* I thought the stamp type might be STAMP4, but I could not identify it.

Of course, there was no concept of "hi-hat" at that time, so it was probably a kind of matching cymbal, and the center hole is about 9mm, so it cannot be used with the current HH stand.
However, considering its rarity, we are selling it as is without any particular modification.

It is a bit thick for a 16", but it looks very interesting when used as a HH, and it has a very dark, traditional hand-hammered sound.
It has a rich sound with complex overtones, a trashy resonance, and a full range of tones that would have definitely been at the top of the cymbal manufacturing process at the time.
Even now, 100 years later, this cymbal still has an overwhelmingly majestic tone that will never fade away.

Miraculously for a cymbal of this generation, there is no hole shaving, no damage to the edges, and only a dull smudge, indicating that the cymbal must have been cared for quite well.
It would be extremely difficult to find a cymbal of this generation in this condition.
It is by no means a practical cymbal to use as is, but it is a very valuable cymbal in terms of cymbal history.
Conversion modification to HH is also recommended (please consult with us about this).

Size: 16 inches
Item rank: B+: Some scratches, but no problem in normal use.
MADE IN TUEKEYの刻印があることから、1923-30年の製造時期であったと仮定しております。
* スタンプ種類はSTAMP4かなと思いましたが、特定しきれませんでした。
