Operating in its current incarnation since 2004 after creating a headquarters in the United States, Istanbul Agop is one of the cymbal industry's leaders in crafting traditional Turksih cymbals. The company was founded by and named after Agop Tomurcuk, who spent decades in Turkey's sole cymbal foundry learning the craft before creating his own company.

Crafted in the traditional Turkish cymbal-making tradition, the Custom Turk series is characterized by heavily hammered bows, crisp stick presence, and a raw finish. This line is intended for applications in jazz and lower volume environments.

Built with a raw bell and sloping bow profile, the Turk Ride responds with a dark, focused sticking and immediate decay.

Years of production: ca. 2000-present

Tonal profile: woody, dry, lower frequency attenuation

Notable features: heavy hammering, raw finish, black logo stamping

Associated artists: Matt Schulz, John Harris, Paul Wells
