Mas mahal lang ang Istanbul Agop Cymbals kase mas madami sila advertisement unlike Mehmets.
Hear the difference of a hand hammered cymbal, a true musical instrument. Not a piece of metal. :-D

cool. btw, dun sa comment na mas mahal ung agop kaysa sa mehmet dahil sa advertisements, IMHO, hindi lang advertisements ung nagdidictate ng price ng cymbals, marami pang ibang factors. Maganda ung tunog ng mehmet pero in my ears, since subjective and personal ang sound ng cymbals, mas gusto ko ung sound ng agop. Nakasubok at nakarinig na ako ng cymbals from agop and mehmet on similar/equivalent series and general weight and sa pandinig ko, mas clangy yung tunog ng mehmet.

tama ka, very musical. Ang dami ding textures na pwedeng kuhanin from them (of course depende sa size and series). 

Dun sa huli kong nakitang price, parang sobrang good deal yung mga istanbul mehmet cymbals na binebenta locally na mas ok pang bilhin yun kaysa dun sa entry level sets ng big cymbal manufacturers.

Php15,650. Tapos na introductory price nila kaya wala nang 10% off yan. Fixed price na daw yun.

Wow. I was having a dilemma kung ano kukunin ko.

I had these in mind: ZBT, and B8. Before, i wasn't too sure about Instanbul pero after reading this thread i'm convinced. :-D Instanbul na nga. :-D

Sa Lazer ba? either istanbul radiant or sultan madalas meron stocks..

in choosing a model or cymbal in particular (wheter istanbul or stagg) consider:

1.) Sound - ano ba maganda sa tenga mo?
2.) Availability - ung hinahanap mo ba na sound/cymbal madali hanapin/makuha?
3.) Budget - ano ba ung kaya mong makuha money-wise
4.) References - most of the artists na idol mo ginagamit ba ito?
5.) Genre - sa tingin mo pasok sa tugtugan mo ung particular cymbals na trip mo?

Overall, suggestion ko lang is try to blend both if you can't decide.. stagg and istanbul setup! come the time na makuha mo na ung timpla na gusto mo, i'm sure you'll be satisfied with your decisions.. :wink:

I tried Instanbul cymbals the other day. I'm not sure kung ano ung model pero un ung naka display kasama ung kit sa SM North Edsa branch ng Lazer.

hi-hat and crash lang. I like the hi-hat parang butter pero ung crash di ko masyadong trip.
OT: Ung ride na kasama na naka display is Wuhan and its like the best ride i ever heard. :-D

Ok bumalik ako sa Lazer kanina and checked kung anong models ung na test ko. Ung Hi hats is Istanbul Radiant. Tapos ung Crash Instanbul Sultan.

quick review: ung Radiant Hi hats ay nakaka inlove. Ang ganda nung chick sound niya. I'll definitely get that when i have the cash. Ung Sultan crash naman ay medyo hindi ako natuwa. In my opinion, medyo gongy siya at hindi bright for my tastes. Some may like it, some may not. But personally, i don't really dig it. But it works as a dark sounding crash.  :-D
