If you don't know that Istanbul Agops kick ass, let me tell you.

Istanbul Agops kick ass!! 

Weighing in at a lovely 1794 grams this Hard to Find Agop plays like a Medium Light Ride or FULL Crash Ride-depending on how you play it. The tone is complex but still remains controlled because of the smaller size.  Its Medium weight provides very nice, and fairly DRY stick attack that is not eclipsed by the ensuing wash.  It plays like a smaller version of the Bosphorus Hammer Ride-that's the overtones/complexity vibe-that type of cymbal but a bit heavier and obviously a smaller more contained size. The magic of these Agops is that they are wonderfully complex without losing focus. And this cymbal is no exception.

When you lay into this 18" it is loud and plays like a heavy Crash Ride. It's very full sounding.

You can use this AGOP 18" for whatever your heart's desire. Obviously it's an amazing Medium Light Crash Ride for jazz, blues, ballads and soul. But that's only if you dream in black and white. This 18" in amazing for rock...and pop, funk, fusion, acoustic and singer songwriter gigs and anytime you want a fairly complex smaller 18" Ride or heavy full Crash.  It's a head turner.

So do yourself a favor and grab this Hand Hammered Istanbul AGOP 18" Orchestra Medium Light Ride or Crash Ride.
