Sorry, I have overlooked your post here.

Anyway, the Ergun GÃ¥rkey signature sounds great. Allthough I am mainly a loud rock drummer ( :lol: ) and the Ergun GÃ¥rkey signature is more light-sounding obviously, I find it to be a great suplement to my 14" New Beat hi hat. Mostly, because of the classic, dark and warm sound that usually comes from hand hammered cymbals.
Great for those defined, more technical, hi-hat patterns I like to use from time to time.

Very difficult to give you a good description on the internet, but I think it's a bargain buy.

I bought it in Istanbul in the summer 2005, and I think I payed the amount of maybe $ 150 - $ 160.

(In Norway cymbals are extremly expencive (as everything else! :P ), so I figure a similar hi hat would cost at least $ 475 - $ 500 to buy here, witch is obviously not recomended for buying on impulse...)

I am quite sure it is rare, and I doubt you can buy this any longer, at least not outside Turkey, allthough I am not sure. If anyone else has information about the Ergun GÃ¥rkey signature hi hat, I would be very pleased to hear from you! :D

Ergun GÃ¥rkey by the way, is one of Turkeys most acknowledged drummers, I beleve. I am not familiar with any of his work, though...

P.S. Any drummers from Turkey, or of Turkish orgin on the forum?
I would love to know more about this Ergun GÃ¥rkey, both the man and the signature hi-hat! :D
