My latest isn't purchased yet. I'm waiting for Tony to text me when the shipment of Istanbul agope traditional rides arrive. I'd love some help with something...get on YouTube and listen to the 20 agope played by Ben from my cymbal.com. also listen to some 24"paiste 2002 rides. I'm so on the fence here. Some opinions may help push me towards one over the other...ive never been this stuck for a decision. I greatly appreciate anyone's thoughts.
If I've found the right demo, the Agop 20" is darker and more diffused than the Paiste 24", which is clean and focused with an assertive bell but still quite receptive to subtle playing. Which sound do you want? That's the only question you need to answer.
