Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary 20" Ride 1885 g
30th Anniversary is true works of art with different variations in massive hammer marks, lathing and color all enhance the sound. It also stand out with hand-shaped rugged-looking bell as its profiles curve gently down. These cymbals are uncannily similar to the vintage Turkish Ks that inspired them. Like their aged counterparts, they are instruments full of character and subtlety.
"The 20” ride offered up a classic vintage jazz sound, with a defined stick definition sitting right over a lovely dark wash. This never built too far, so not diverting attention away from the stick pattern. But there is an ocean of color sitting just below there, which is a major factor in the overall sound. Playing the ride in small and big band settings and it didn’t disappoint in either scenario. It took a while to get used to the wash, but in a live situation this only added to the colors, sitting well behind the soloist or with a driving brass section. The handcrafted bell of the cymbal delivered some subtle dark Latin effects, and if you’re short of space, it makes for a surprisingly good crash." - Team
