  • This is the 24” you wish Zildjian made! And if you can find one of them it will run you $750!  And who knows what it will sound like.  Hardly anyone actually has these in stock where you can hear them.  

  • But never chez Hazelshould!  Listen away! 

  • Beautiful 2 foot DARK, complex Hand Hammered Ride that’s insanely crashable!

  • Hand Hammered Istanbul AGOP SE Special Edition 24” Jazz Ride Sizzle from the EARLY years. It’s aged and mellowed exquisitely.

  • This is from the era that Agop was really promoting a new style of cymbals! No one had done anything like this before!

  • With a weight of 3324  grams, this glorious 2 foot Istanbul plays like a Dark Thin Complex Ride or even Huge Crash. 

  • The stick attack is light and organic and is followed by a stunningly smoky and organic wash that billows out but retains a bit of control - it has a hint of dryness to it - compliments of the unique Special Edition style craftsmanship.  Add three cluster rivets for the perfect subtle Old School  Vintage Sizzle wash. 

  • Crash on this 24” and it unleashes one of the darkest, more full-sounding big crashes you will hear! 

  • Hand Hammered, organic, super dark, medium low pitched, light and controlled Ride, magnificent Dark Crash. That is this beauty!

  • This ain’t Guitar Center fodder. This is a stand-out cymbal. And it’s aged magnificently over the last two decades and you rarely find them.
