Woah..the Istanbul baby....smokey and dark....something I could imagine a cross between Bill Stewart and Jack DeJohnette using.

I disagree. I liked the Istanbul's crash the best. I didn't care for the Paiste's crash.

Want an opinion? I like the Paiste best. Imo you need a fully lathed surface and a certain weight to get most out of the flat ride anatomy. Play the clip along with some music that has horns, piano etc. and you will notice it's the only one with any real "ring". With the others, there are few highs, the lows will get lost in the mix,which leaves us with mostly the wood click of the stick.

My experience so far has been that the Istanbul is a real nice acoustic piano cymbal. It works in a quartet in a recital hall type setting (moderate reverberation). It may get lost if the horn is amplified and/or electric keyboards or guitar. It sounds nice with any horns or vibes if they are acoustic. The Bosphorus is great as a mellow addition in a piano trio. It works great behind bass solos. Either one can work for contrast but the texture has to be not overly dense. Im hoping the paiste will sit nicely in contrast with some of the bolder sounds Ive been experimenting with like the K Custom Special Dry Crash 22. It is very different from that. Or maybe it will pair with a 20” KCon light or some older K’s. I was also thinking it could work with just a crash and a single headed kit I’ve been assembling ala Airto with RTF. We shall see!
