ฉาบกลองชุด Istanbul Agop 22″ OM Ride
The 22″ OM Ride has a clear, slightly metallic stick due to the unique black finishing and intense hammering, and features a dry, trashy crash sound.
The Cindy Blackman Santana OM Series was designed in conjunction with Cindy to capture the vibier, more dynamic cymbal sounds from the golden era of Jazz. Focused, metallic sticking with a dark, dry wash and a thunderous crash make this ride a perfect choice for Jazz, Indie Rock, or any situation calling for the classic 60’s Turkish sound. The Mantra series plays perfect counterpart to Cindy’s OM series. Adding higher volume, and greater attack, while still maintaining a musical balance of warm overtones. Great for situations which require greater projection and cut that still require a rich, dark sound.
ISTANBUL AGOP CYMBALS
Our founder, Agop Tomurcuk, was born in Istanbul-Turkey in 1941. Growing up in the Samatya neighborhood of Istanbul, he followed in the footsteps of his older brothers Oksant and Garbis, by beginning work as an apprentice cymbal-smith at the age of 9 at the only cymbal factory in Turkey. Here, Agop learned, and later helped to refine every aspect of the cymbal making process, becoming a master at every process and eventually becoming the chief cymbal-smith, until that company ceased production of their cymbals in Turkey in 1977. In 2009, we have the most musical and diverse cymbal lineup anywhere, supported by a roster of the most influential and compelling drummers of this generation.
