  • A very hard to find Istanbul, and one that is quite versatile: 

  • Darker, organic, and much more brooding than any K Constantinople could dream to be. 

  • Fully lathed golden top, raw, unlathed underside, that's the ISTANBUL AGOP Vezir. 

  • This combination provides the Goldilocks zone for a terrific, controlled stick attack followed by a glowing warm wash. However, that wash dissipates faster than a fully lathed Traditional Style cymbal would. Therein, lies the magic of this cymbal. 

  • This particular 18” Istanbul VEZIR is VERY DARK and low pitched - especially for an 18”.  It could easily pass as a 20” but it’s faster and more responsive. 

  • Being the 18” size it’s remarkably controlled and responds much faster than than a larger 20” or 22”. 

  • Very Dark, low-profile, very low pitch, easily crashable, extremely mellow.

  • Sounds like a larger cymbal but feels and PLAYS like an 18” with that quickness and control.  
  • Beautiful crash! 

  • Immaculate condition! Only played for the video. 

  • This Series has been around for 30 years and with good reason. It’s one of the nicest ones Istanbul offers.
