Smile TYRKO 18" cymbal

Hi. I have a Tyrko cymbal that I want to share with you. It has 18" diameter, it's very light and has a trashy sound. When you try to ride, it opens and crashes like crazy.
It has a little keyhole, as you can see.
What info can you give about it?

Default Re: TYRKO 18" cymbal

I have a fairly warped nickelsilver 18", it says "SONOR TYRKO" with the cute little Sonor mallet logo, and it sounds like cats humping the alley when you're trying to sleep with the windows open.
