Dry stick definition with warm, complex overtones. Mellow crash-ride capabilities. Although some of the Istanbul Agop 19" Signature Crash Ride Cymbals may be stamped with "Crash" or "Ride"- they are considered to be crash/rides. Each Turkish cymbal is a work of art hand-crafted individually by the cymbalsmith. Variations in color, hammer marks, lathing, labels, etc., are all enhancements that add to the natural beauty, sound, and unique quality of these one-of-a-kind cymbals.
