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.

Conceived to celebrate the anniversary of the original Istanbul company Zilclier (Turkish for "cymbal maker"), the 30th Anniversary series was introduced in 2010. These cymbals are produced in accordance with traditional Turkish cymbal smithing and feature a completely handmade bell, each hammered by one cymbal smith.

The Anniversary 22" Cymbal Bag features all-leather construction and an Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary embossing.
