Istanbul Agop 14″ Xist Hi-Hat Cymbals


Great deals on Istanbul Agop 14″ Xist Hi-Hat Cymbals at Drum Central with free shipping on orders over £100 and a two year warranty.


Istanbul in Turkey has long held the title of capital of the cymbal making world with the tradition of hand making cymbals dating back to the 16th Century there. Formed by Agop Tomurcuk around 1978 after the original K factory where he was foreman closed down, Istanbul Agop helped keep alive the art of hand made cymbals when the efficiency of mechanised production lines had all but replaced it.

Xist are Istanbul Agop’s mid range offering of cymbals. They are cast cymbals made from the same B20 bronze that Istanbul’s flagship ranges are made from but they are machine finished rather than hand made which makes them a little bit more affordable.

Like most machined cymbals Istanbul Agop Xist cymbals create a bright focussed modern sound that is great for rock playing whilst still being versatile enough to be played at a lower volume. They are often compared to the well known Sabian AAX range.

Istanbul Agop 14″ Xist Hi-Hats are crisp and focused with tight sticking and are medium in weight.
  • B20 Bronze
  • Machine Hammered and Lathed
  • Cast Cymbal
