I don't recognize the hammering, but they are very cool looking.

How do they sound?

Thanks,

Wow- that is a tough one. Looks like something Murat Diril would make. Perhaps their Black Sea hats but polished?

I don't know but if the second picture was in a Rorschach test, I'd say it looked like a Morel Mushroom.

LOL

They look like they should sound good. But looks can be deceiving sometimes.

Yea, they could easily be from an independent maker like Bettis.
They're definitely not Matt's. I know this because, well........he told us.......

They certainly have that Turkish made look about them. The first thing I thought of when I saw the hammering was Diril or Amedia or the like.

Zildjian has a line called "special dry" that produced some varied looking hats early on with similar hammering, but not as fine hammering, some did have minimal lathing and a similar edge though, but not as pronounced.
