Feel free to ask any questions. Thanks!
The Turk is the second generation MC (dry) model. I have the second generation Turk Matt Chamberlain model. Hunted for it for years to find the perfect sound and I'm taking it to the grave with me.I think Turk, the dry one?
So, is there actually any difference to the Turk and the MC ride?T

If you don't find one, I believe Istanbul Agop is still accepting custom orders right now. If you know the target weight of the cymbal you want they can make one within "X" amount of grams--plus or minus--of your target weight. It should be close enough. Only hitch is they won't label/stencil it as a Matt Chamberlain cymbal, just as a Turk Ride.
The MC Ride is a Turk Ride with some minor spec differences. You would need to double check that the Istanbul Agop factory will make it to the Matt Chamberlain Signature specs. Just don't expect it to be labeled as a MC Ride from the factory (it will likely be branded as a Turk Ride). I would recommend you talk to Tony at Cymbals Only to see if this is a route you would want to go or not. Tony really knows his stuff. You may be able to find an MC Ride if you look long enough, but most guys I know who have them are not letting them go. Just wanted to mention the custom build factory option in the event you can't locate one. It would be extremely helpful if you know the weight range of what you're after before placing an order.So, is there actually any difference to the Turk and the MC ride?
Just the other day I was thinking, I wonder if he's ever going to want to sell those. And here you are! Maybe I summoned you? I hope not, 'cuz I'm not within a lightyear of being able to afford another kit right now. But, damn, sam, do I covet.I've got that set of Caribbean Blue late 80s/early 90s square-badge jasper-shell Gretsches available. 22x16, 10x8, 12x10, 13x11, and 16x16. Tom mounts on 10/12/13 were swapped from shell-mounted to the slick new Gretsch suspension mounts. Sound great, but there's a bunch of size overlap between those and my Yamahas. But it's possibly the best sounding kick drum I've ever played. Would like to get $1700 for them.
