ISTANBUL AGOP XIST B20 BRILLIANT SERIES

Istanbul Agop cymbals are famously beaten into life by hammer-wielding cymbalsmiths. Regular Istanbul cymbals receive around 4500 hammer blows during this process.
Xist cymbals differ in this respect through what Istanbul refers to as pre-form casting. The company is unwilling to elaborate on exactly what this entails, other than stating that Xist cymbals require around 3000 less hammer blows to create. From the information supplied, it can only be deduced that the alloy – tin-rich B20 – is poured into cymbal-shaped moulds, with the resulting blanks requiring a mere 1500 blows to finish.
