Originally a family company, Istanbul Agop has been making cymbals the old-fashioned way for over 40 years. Bringing traditional Turkish cymbal smithing into the modern era, Istanbul handcrafts some of the finest rides, hi-hats, splashes, crashes, and effect cymbals in the world––and to satisfy players like Mel Lewis, Elvin Jones, Art Blakey, Tony Williams, Jack Dejohnette, and Cindy Blackman, they have to be.
With designs ranging from iconic and inimitable to innovative and inspiring, Istanbul's various cymbal series cover a drummer's every application.
For traditional Turkish sound stateside, look no further than the Chicago Drum Exchange.
