Istanbul Traditional 16″ Medium Crash Cymbal
Weighing in a little bit lighter than the Traditional Heavy Crashes, the Istanbul Traditional Series Medium Crash cymbals are probably the only modern cymbals in production today which closely resemble the sound of the early Zildjian medium-weight cymbals. If you don’t want to go too heavy or too light, then the Medium weight Crash cymbals are an extremely versatile and full-sounding cymbal with a longer sustain than heavier models.

Istanbul’s Traditional Series cymbal sound is suited for pretty much every style of music imaginable. The classic concept of these fully lathed cymbals has proven its value throughout the years, from the earliest Jazz drummers and Be-Bop pioneers, right up to modern Heavy-Metal players.
Never resting on their laurels, Istanbul Traditional cymbals continue to evolve, developing and providing the sounds for the needs of the cutting-edge stylistic revolutionary players. Traditional Series cymbals continue to explore the musical possibilities derived from the darkest, responsive and pleasingly controllable cymbal sounds.
About Istanbul Cymbals
Istanbul cymbals were born from the collaboration between Mehmet Tamdeğer and Agop Tomurcuk, now cymbal-smiths with decades of joint cymbal-making experience. Mehmet and Agop named their company after the city that has been home to the epitome of high-quality cymbals for many, many years – Istanbul.
