The Istanbul traditional medium series has a distinctively washy sound with not a large amount of high end frequencies. This creates a darker, less ‘crashy’ sound great for musicians looking for a change from a standard crash.

This crash offers a longer sustain than your average crash. It is completely lathed on top and bottom, producing rich, and warm overtones and a high musical presence ideal for a variety of genres.

Istanbul existed as a single entity from 1980 until 1996, when Agop Tomurcuk passed away. His sons Sarkis and Arman then left the foundry and founded Agop Istanbul the following year. Istanbul Agop and Istanbul Mehmet, each named for the two friends who began the company, now operate as separate entities with a shared history.

Istanbul are proud of the fact they “haven’t changed a whole lot since the beginning” since they founded in 1978.
