Does Agop fit both of these categories? If so, what models/sizes should I specifically be looking for? So far, I've the closest I've come is 20" Zildjian K Customs of various sorts...but I'd like to find something a little more affordable (and maybe something I can find used).

Lots to choose from from Agop to fit the bill.

Check over the extensive sound files at, The Cymbal Shop and Heartbeat Percussion in regards to various Istanbul Agop rides suited for jazz and see what tickles your fancy :}
