The Turkish cymbal manufacturers Istanbul have developed their XIST series specifically for drummers on a limited budget. Traditional, hand-made cymbals are usually quite expensive and while modern, machine-made cymbals may be more affordable, they tend to lack the depth. Istanbul combines traditional and modern cymbal-making techniques in the XIST series to offer affordable, professional all-round cymbals made of B20 alloy.
Istanbul Agop XIST Brilliant cymbal set 14, 16, 20-inch
This cymbal set consists of three cymbals (actually four if you count the hi-hats individually) in standard sizes: a 14-inch hi-hat, 16-inch crash and a 20-inch ride. The set comes complete with a free hard case. These cymbals have received a brilliant finish and generally sound warm, open and deep, without losing any clarity. They offer excellent stick definition and an average sustain for beginners and advanced drummers alike.
