    Will The Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary Patina With Time?

    I am glad you put the pics in with this. I hadn't heard of the Frank - altered cymbals. Looks like he has some 20's and 24's for sale? that is a real stiff price to get that shipped to the US, though. Also, thanks for sharing the recordings. That sent me down a rabbit hole for the last half...

    Will The Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary Patina With Time?

    That's helpful insight as well! At this point, I think I have my question answered - it won't patina to the point of altering the sound to be like some of the older versions of the series on the market. Looks like I will have to stay on the hunt for someone selling a 30th with the...

    That’s a great way to describe it - stiffer and drier. They patina version has a shorter sustain as well. Did you end up finding another set that was closer to what your shop had or just move on from the 30ths?

    Will The Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary Patina With Time?

    Love that guys playing! Seems like he is probably on one of the earliest versions. I think (at least from the timeline I can gather so far) I actually like the mid-year creations. Probably more like your 2018. I think it’s been in the last 2 years that it has really gone back to the original...

    Will The Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary Patina With Time?

    This is really helpful! I watched your videos (great playing by the way). It’s nice to have the same recording setup with the same player when you can’t play the cymbals yourself. Is the 2.1k or 2.2k grams videos of a heavier patina? It was tough to tell from the angle. I love the dry, quick...

    The 30ths don't have any logos with ink. They actually only have a small stamp in the actual cymbal that says Istanbul 30th. Pretty cool little feature of the series.

    Will The Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary Patina With Time?

    When I look at the cover of Carter Mclean's book or look at multiple folks on this site, or even just sit behind my buddy's 30th, it gives way to a completely different vibe than my 30th that I just purchased in November of this past year. I read on some other posts on DFO of the changes from...

    Older Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary Ride - 22 or Larger

    Looking for some of the older Istanbul Agop 30th Anniversary Rides. The ones that have the darker areas on the cymbal that have the old K look. Some examples below of some I have seen on here. I have a new (bought in November 2020) Agop 30th Anniversary Ride that I bought a few months ago that...
