I recently saw on of these Instanbul Agop 25th Anniversary rides in a shop and did not know what to make of it. Was 21 inches as I recall. Sounded pretty nice. Cannot find much info on these, I suppose because it's obviously not made any more. Just curious. I tend to like Istanbuls in general.

The first ones to have the “blue” treatment, if I recall correctly. A very dark and mellow sound.

The 25 anniversaries were the first to use the blue patina treatment. Next was the ‘06 models. Cindy Blackman was digging them when she was looking into switching brands, so had an entire line made with the blue patina treatment.
