By combining modern production techniques with traditional cymbal making processes, Istanbul cymbals are able to offer professional, cast B20 (80-percent Copper, 20-percent Tin) cymbals at a price that is accessible to drummers at any level.
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 balanced, musical spread. Available with a traditionally lathed or modern brilliant finish, XIST box sets also come with a free cymbal carry bag.
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."
