Default Re: Istanbul Agop Picture-Fest

Forgive me, I'm young, but could someone illustrate the difference between all these different handmade Turkish cymbals? I've never played Bosphorus, Istanbul, TRX, etc. but am intrigued by the "old world" methods and hand lathing, hammering, finishing, etc.

TRX is the newcomer but their MD review last year was favorable...and their cymbals are beautiful looking as well.

Sorry to hijack, not my intention - Karl those hats are probably the most beautiful I've ever seen, I can only imagine what they sound like!

Everything is can see (and no doubt hear) the manual labor that was put into them.
