Default New Diril ride 22"

Made in turkey by Ibrahim Diril, if i'm not mistaken he used to hammer cymbals for meinl and paiste.

Anyways here it is

22" 2300g

nice stick sound, good crash, good wash, and mixes well with my bosphorus.
I'm still new to it, and its my first 22" so I can't control it well yet, but time will fix that

What a beautiful cymbal. I haven't heard of "Ibrahim Diril." Is he a freelance cymbal maker? Did you get this pie off ebay?

That's absolutely a beauty and I'm sure you'll get use to a 22"

These are loveley cymbals. I have a 2000g 21" jazz ride and a 900/1100g 15" pair of turk hats myself. Love 'em. Ibrahim is a master. He used to work for Istanbul in the 90s as well.

I see you got one of the first with the new logo, I have the first one on mine ( I got them early this summer). Is the egg-shaped logo on the back as well?

Very nice! Has the dark complex Turkish handmade cymbal "vibe" going on and lots of mystery in it's tone.

Only thing I can't get a handle on from your sound file due to the random stick stroke examples with big breaks in between is if the woody stick click "stays put" on top over the wash if played hard over a least a minute or so of continuous playing {?}.

Here a clip of it with my other cymbals, maybe you will like it better

from left to right, the cymbals are Bos 15" master turk, 19" antique, 20" turk, and 22" diril on the far right.

Thanks for the 2nd sound sample. Well it certainly has the most wash and air of the all the rides and I suspect it's a very "new" cymbal and it will lose a bit of it's untamed wildness over the next few months and the stick will sit and be heard more on top over time.

I have a 22" thin 2235g SE TW prototype that changed from when I first got it settling down with more stick over the wash over the last year and a bit loosing some of it's youthful wildness regarding the wash. I would expect the same to occur with this new Turkish ride beauty too.

Nice cymbal family with a good variety of sounds by the way :}

Default Re: New Diril ride 22"

I was going to post a review of the Dirils as well but figured I'd hop on Tuxido's thread rather than start a new one.

The Dirils are being imported here by a guy named Sutton who went WAY out on a limb after trying them and decided to see if he could make them a player in a market that's getting pretty crowded. I really wanted to try them but wasn't ready to buy anything so I talked him into letting me run a cymbal tour with some 14" hats, 18" crash, and 22" ride.

Now my usual setup is Paiste sigs so this is a BIG change for me... The hats I got were a little too jazz oriented (heaviest being in the mid 900ish range) but sounded great and the crash and ride were to die for. As pointed out, the thin ones start off a little washy when they're new but you can hear that they're going to just AMAZING once they're broken in a bit. The ride I had was a 22" 2500 gram one and I believe the 18" was around 1800 so pretty thin as well. The 18" blended GREAT with my 17" Paiste fast crash and it was pretty hard to pass that one on. They're definitely a bit jazz oriented but the heavier ones would work great for just about any fusion of music.

The price list I've got from him was: 22" is $249 The 20" is $199. 15" hats are $250 and 14" hats are $225.00. (which is a STEAL for these cymbals I think...) I'm pretty sure he said the 18" was only going to be around $160 which made it even harder for me to move them along on the cymbal tour...

As far as getting them... I know they're going to be at NAMM this year but I imagine you can get in touch with Sutton at his Gmail account as well: dirilcymbalsusa@gmail.com

Very very nice! Although I`m a fan of very thin cymbals I like the smokey sound of this one.
I could imagine this beauty in a big band setting as well...

Congrats buddy...
