22" Istanbul Agop ART 20 Ride 3242 grams

Excellent used condition

The Art20 cymbals have the expected muted gold color of B20 bronze, they are all medium weight and have a brilliant finish with fine lathing on top and underneath. Hammering is over the entire surface except the bell, and you can tell this is a hand operation because the large dimples are irregularly spaced.  

The 22" ride is unusually warm and dark. There is though a marked contrast with the bell which is quite sharp, fruity and dingy, with good projection. The ride surface is soft and warm near the edges and as you move nearer the bell a higher, persistent yet harmonious background note emerges, resulting in a full sound.
