The Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary is a true work of art, featuring a variety of hammer marks, lathing, and colors that all contribute to its unique sound. It stands out with its hand-shaped, rugged-looking bell, whose profiles gently curve downward. These cymbals bear a striking resemblance to vintage Turkish Ks, which served as their inspiration. As with their aged counterparts, these instruments possess character and nuance.
"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
