Istanbul XIST 4-Piece Natural Finish Cymbal Set
The Istanbul XIST cymbal series have a musical and modern sound and this Istanbul XIST 4-piece cymbal set delivers bags of value (in a bag!).
By combining modern production techniques with traditional cymbal making processes, Istanbul cymbals are able to offer professional, cast B20 (80 Copper, 20 Tin) cymbals at a price that is accessible to drummers at any level. As seen in the following video, they provide clear, articulate sticking and a dark, warm ‘crash’ with moderate overtones:
Istanbul XIST 4-Cymbal Rundown
So what’s in the box? Well let’s start with a pair of 14″ medium weight Hi-Hats followed by a versatile 20″ Ride with a lovely ‘ping’ sound and a musical, well-balanced presence. Following on, we have not one, but two full-sounding Crash cymbals in 16″ and 18″ diameters. There’s also a delightful cymbal bag thrown in, free of charge. There is no ‘brilliant’ finish on these cymbals, they are all ‘natural’ finish which means you can polish the hell out of them at every opportunity, or leave them to build up a dirty patina which meets the full approval of the ADC Grinch.
