WOW, you cleaned up!
Thank goodness for credit cards!
Basically want to audition/record a bunch of stuff against my Paiste 602/Masters setup. Figured at these prices I could sell pies I don’t like and probably break even.... will update. Have owned a bunch of Agop in the past but not Mehmet.
Soultone 16” heavy hammered hats, about $115 for the pair
I have 10" HH Soultone hats and got them for about $70...that's a lot of metal for not a lot more $. the 10s are great.
I have a set of the 14’s - nice!
I have the 16 top paired with a heavy symphonic bottom from meinl. The HH is super trashy and freaking loud man. I dig it, but it's only for the rock music, promise
Okay, I caved and ordered one Soultone. We will see what happens. Here are two more I was close to ordering, but I know I don't need a flat ride -- they are just stupid cheap!
21" for $75
20" for $66
Geeeeez... You might be able to sell those for scrap and cover 80% of your cost if you don't like them at that price lolol
(The above was in jest... Even without knowing exact "spot" prices I'm assuming you could only scrap a heavy cymbal for anywhere in the neighborhood of $15-20 maximum and that's with someone being able to give you the prices for the tin and copper)
On the topic of Soultones I've written mini reviews of some models in this thread. All include weights of the cymbals that I received, which is going to vary from one cymbal to the next in the same model family, but will give an idea within +/- 100 or so grams of what to expect. http://www.drumforum.org/threads/do-we-have-soultone-players-here.136472/

Broke down and just bought the Istanbul Mehmet Onurhan 15 inch crash cymbal. Last one left directly from Amazon for $78.08. Can't beat that! I think it will go well with my Paiste 900's 17", 18" & 19". Similar sounding from what I see. I added a Gibraltar boom medium weight boom stand to go along with it for $58 bucks. These are crazy low cymbal prices that are hard to say no to. I just purchased this week my offset pedals and a set of LP mini timbales and now this! That's 4 things in a week! Damn, this drumming thing is becoming expensive. Every time I see a deal, I end up pushing "add to cart"
Update: I just checked and after I purchased it they listed it as "Out of stock, more on the way" and they raised the price to $163.56. Damn!!!! That's more than double than what I paid for it just 10 minutes ago. Woohoo!!

22” Istanbul Mehmet 61st Anniversary Vintage Sizzle Ride, $167 after dial-in 10% discount. One left!
I love the istanbuls sound soo much. i have a set of sultans, just a word of warning, i had my ride and crash both crack at the hole.. i haven't had the guts to check the hats, don't wanna know.
