Default Istanbul Ride 20"

Hi Folks,

Recently I bought this Istanbul. The inkstamp says only Istanbul (so no Agop and Mehmet) Signed in the cup by the two brothers. Is this one of the first Isyanbuls? Thx in advance.

Yes it is. It's commonly referred to as a "pre-split". What's the weight?

Wow, for a cymbal that is a quarter century old or more it looks like it has never been played. Very nice! How does it sound?

Yes, an early one, but I don't think the earliest. I had a 22 with a stenciled logo, so I have to believe it was earlier, before they started screen printing their logos on the cymbals.
