__Here's a great Crash that was HAND HAMMERED IN TURKEY and will cost you significantly less than that machine hammered Zildjian masquerading as a Turkish cymbal.
I've used Agop XISTs myself on tour-I have a 16", 17", 18", 19" and 20" and I absolutely LOVE them. They sound incredible!
They're extremely versatile. AND what I've been told (from a reliable source) is that THIS PARTICULAR 15" is rare because it's a "Power Crash" where the outer edge is TRaditional instead of Brilliant Finish.
Apparently there were only a few of these produced! _BRILLIANT AND TRADITIONAL HYBRID FINISH!! _
_IT LITERALLY SOUNDS LIKE AN 80S K BUT FOR LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE OF A NEW K!! _
Posted for your immense pleasure is this gorgeous sounding Istanbul AGOP XIST Series 15" POWER Crash that is in absolutely AMAZING CONDITION! Check out the pictures!! There are
_NO_
nicks, dents, flea bites or any of that crap. It's in GREAT SHAPE with just a few fingerprints that have graced it's surfaces!
As you can see this beauty is SUPER CLEAN!! _AND AT 872 GRAMS THIS POWER CRASH IS INDEED FAIRLY THIN!! _
Here's what Agop has to say about the Xist Crash:
_"XIST CRASHES HAVE A PAPERY ATTACK, AND A MEDIUM DECAY."_
Simple and to the point.
SOUND FILE POSTED SOON!!!!
Weighing in at a_ LOVELY 872 GRAMS _this Istanbul AGOP XIST plays like a great DARK Medium Thin FAST Crash. Of course this cymbal has ALL of the super warm, turkish magic that Agop has been slingin' for decades, however, the XISTs definitely have a _CLEANER SLIGHTLY MORE FOCUSED_ vibe than your garden variety Agop which generally are fairly complex sounding. It's as if they borrowed a cup of sugar from Paiste...cleaner, more focused, but STILL with the great WARMTH and turkish Hand Hammered magic Agop is famous for.
_SURPRISINGLY DARK!! WARM! GLOWING FAST CRASH WITH A MEDIUM QUICK DECAY!!! _
Obviously this Istanbul Agop XIST 15" Crash is a no brainer for blues and soul. However the fun doesn't stop there. Their glowing warm tone is perfect for funk, fusion, country, pop, rock and ANYTIME you need a great, warm and slightly more focused well balanced DARK tone.
_THERE'S LITERALLY NO NEED TO SPEND $255 ON A ZILDJIAN K WHEN THIS AGOP IS DARKER AND MORE LUSH SOUNDING ANYWAY! THAT'S THE TRUTH! _
So do yourself a favor and grab this FANTASTIC Condition, SUPER CLEAN, SUPER DARK 872 gram Istanbul AGOP XIST 15" TRADITIONAL BRILLIANT Power Crash!
