The Istanbul Agop 20" Xist Ion China cymbal is fast and trashy. The symmetrically placed geometric holes prove a raw attack with a very quick decay. Great for accents or for cymbal stacks. 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.
