  • Here’s the future of collecting! 

  • A damn near impossible to find Ultra Thin Istanbul AGOP PROTOTYPE 25th Anniversary OM 20” that weighs a staggeringly THIN 1628 grams! 

  • It’s not easy to find ANY Agop 20” that’s 1628 grams thin. And especially not a Custom One-Off.

  • When the AGOP 25th Anniversary debuted in 2005 it messed up a lot of other cymbal companies. It cemented  AGOP as a front runner in the cymbal world and not just a one-trick-Sig-pony.   

  • Well this 20” is a Prototype of that! And it’s basically the 20” CRASH version.  Thinner by about 100 grams.  
  • Weighing in at a super thin 1628 grams, this blue hue AGOP has that ineffable admixture of ever so slightly dry combined with old-world, Hand Hammered complexity.  I don’t know they did it but it was indeed a cause for celebration.

  • Beautiful Istanbul K -ish hand hammering on this one, blue/gold to navy ripples throughout.

  • Super dark crash with a fairly quick decay. Unbelievably lush and warm with that gorgeous AGOP complexity.  

  • Amazing Thin Light Dark Ride. Comes to life with the softest touch. Perfect for brushes. 

  • No issues. Exquisitely aged for 16 years.

  • Crashable. Rideable. Collectible Prototype from the era where Agop really turned the corner.
