My personal opinion is that it will be easier to find a good set of Agop. Sound is subjective, but finding good Sabian jazz cymbals can be tough. They're out there, I've heard them, but they're always someone else's. :)

I miss my old A's too.
Get the right ones and they can work.
Ive even played a modern 21" sweet ride that was killing...and i love the 19" beautiful baby...so I might find those "cheap"/used. Some 13" new beats and I'm set

And better off moneywise with Bosphoru$-- used.
Sabian is closer to AK I think you been there done that.
Bosphorus
Yes. I agree. I owned 20 and 22 hammer rides...but they didnt do anything for me at the time

Ok good - I had a 21" Agop Mel Lewis that I'm on the fence about if you change your mind......I also have a thin 20 Bos masters ride......
