Turkish Sumela 14'' Hi Hats

The Sumelas have an unconventional finish and a unique sound. There is a central band about 1 1/2in wide and 2in from the outer edge of the cymbal that is polished, though not brilliant. A similar, smaller band surrounds the bell.

The rest of the top is lathed but also acid-washed, which gives it a slightly rough, dry texture. The entire bottom of the cymbal is acid-washed as well. This technique flattens the over-tones a bit. It also increases the propensity of the cymbal to tarnish, which gives the Sumelas a beautiful vintage green patina.
