- Here’s a very rare and collectible pair of AGOPs that were only made for a brief time. And these beauties sound absolutely magnificent.
- The Istanbul AGOP AZURE was a tip of the hat to the Paiste BLUE LABEL 602 - hence the name.
- With Traditional style FULL lathing and a slightly smaller bell, this series offered a pinch more of that clean Paiste control to the famous Hand Hammered Agop complexity.
- And it worked.
- These Azures do indeed have a stunning, very clean and controlled tone for being Hand Hammered. And they’re still exceptionally warm sounding.
- Imagine a Paiste Traditional meets an AGOP. That’s these rare Azure Hihats.
- Dark leanings with a very well defined stick attack. Open them up for a soft sibilant hand hammered complex hissssss.
- Take a listen. These are some of the nicest, warmest, most tight and clean sounding Hand Hammered Agops you will hear.
- And these Azures were harder to find even when they were being made.
- No issues. Great shape! Aged 15 years. Collectible.
