    I was thinking of starting a thread the same as this myself. I'm saving up for something like the following Istanbul Agops-

    20" Vezir Ride M
    18" Trad Crash T
    17" Trad Crash T
    17" Trad Crash T
    16" Trad Crash T
    16" Trad CHina w/3 rivets grouped
    18" Trad Chinaw/6 rivets even spread
    10" Trad Splash
    12" Trad Splash
    13" Trad Hats mt/mh
    14" Trad Hats (closed?) m/m

    I might add a second ride as I'm mucking around rather successfully with open handed playing at the moment, and would change the 14" closed hats to be used on a remote stand with mt/mh weights instead of m/m.

    And then a set of cymbals for small combo

    22" Vezir Jazz Ride
    20" Light Jazz Ride
    18" Thin Crash
    14" Jazz Hats
    20" China w/6 rivets evenly spread

    Anyways, that's my goal ... lets hope this thread continues. I wish the sultan cymbals weren't so trashy, because IMO they are the most baddass looking cymbals on the market.
    This signature is seen by drummers every day ... imagine what it can do for your business.

    Alchemy Cymbals:Theyre all handmade so every cymbal sounds different....I can only tell you about the crash and the splash....Crash(Rock) is Really high-pitched with a big explosion,the sweet and Medium crashes really cut through the music and they are all really bright...As for the splash(Rock 10"),,,it's my favourite cymbal on the set!!It'S really bright,with full sound that cut's through the music...

    And as for dawael,No Istanbul's are cheap,in Turkey they are cheap as hell...ex:Alchemy Professional Crash 17":86$

    My setup at the moment:

    20" Traditional Ride
    14" Traditional Hat
    16"Traditional Crash
    10" Alchemy Pro Rock Splash
    17"Alchemy Pro Rock Crash

    and I will be getting a 18" Alchemy China in about a week
    and here are some pic's of the Sultan Series:

    How do Istanbuls compare to mainstream cymbals, like A Customs or HH? I was looking into getting some A customs, but am definitely all for saving some cash and supporting the smaller companies if the product performs better.
