Default Re: Istanbul Agop Picture-Fest

I've been looking at the Sultan and Traditional dark or thin crashes but can't actually hear any in person (nearest stockist is about a 4 hour drive from my house!)

Which of the above would be most similar to a Zildjian K dark thin or K custom dark crash?

I'm looking at an 18 or 19 and wanting something low pitched and dark but that won't get lost on a bigger stage (i.e. still with enough body to project).

The K custom dark crash was perfect really for that purpose (if only it came in a 19!), but a) they are much more expensive than the Istanbul and b) I've really been turned on to Istanbul lately after I got a pair of alchemy hats for REAL cheap and prefer them to my K custom hybrid hats that cost like 5 times as much!
Yamaha, ZIldjian, Pearl, DW Hardware, Shure, Vic Firth, Remo and Evans
