High Quality at an Affordable Price

By combining modern production techniques with traditional cymbal making processes, Istanbul cymbals are able to offer professional, cast B20 (80 Copper, 20 Tin) cymbals at a price that is accessible to drummers at any level.

The Hi-Hats are crisp, and focused with tight sticking and medium weight, crashes have a papery attack and a medium decay whilst rides deliver a definitive ping with a balance and musical spread. Available with a traditionally lathed or modern brilliant finish, Xist box sets also come with a free hard case.

Reviews

Music Radar awarded these cymbals 4/5 in their review.

"First impressions were that none of the Xists would have any problems projecting. The hi-hats were warm and full-toned but had a clear edge to them. Played quietly, they sounded rich and musical; taken up a few levels of velocity their top end came to the fore, slicing deftly through in playing situations. The pair of even-diameter crashes blended together perfectly, opening brightly, swelling boldly and decaying harmoniously."

"Rounding things off was the 20" ride, which behaved impeccably and delivered a sweet-sounding ping over a playful wash. Sticking the bell brought forth a clean, metallic response, which was hard and suitably authoritative without being harsh."
