  • No big company makes this one. Hell. Istanbul Agop hardly makes many of these.  

  • And this one is earlier too!  This is the kind of beauty that really out Istanbul in the map -  BECAUSE no big company made this. 

  • Amazing, SUPER dry, extremely responsive, organic Istanbul AGOP 18” Flat Ride with a slight shadow of breathiness. 

  • Classic TURK craftsmanship - raw, unlathed, heavily Hand Hammered throughout!  

  • The absence of a bell gives flat rides a controlled, focused tone with a fantastic stick attack.

  • And that is exactly what we have with this 1596 gram beauty!   

  • Very tight, pin-point, prominent stick articulation with a very organic, raw wash that lasts but a moment. A pinch of complexity. 

  • Not your average Flat Ride! 
  • This rare 18” flat is all about articulation.  I mean it’s DRY! 

  • Crash on it for a desert-lightening-like effects crash.  

  • Perfect for very low to medium, medium loud settings.  Amazing under the mic.

  • No issues.  Clean with a natural patina that has built up on the raw surface.  

  • Incredible sounding 18” that’s aged and dried out very well.
