__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
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!
