Get The Classic Sound Of An Istanbul Agop 21" Mel Lewis Ride Cymbal

The Istanbul 21" Mel Lewis Ride is dark and warm buttery, with a woody stick definition. A true classic sound.


Mel Lewis was the first endorser of Istanbul Agop Cymbals. After his death in 1990 and with the blessing of his family, Mel's chosen cymbals were flown back to the factory and used as models for what would become his Signature Series. Every detail of every individual cymbal has been taken in with exacting detail and replicated by the hands of the Istanbul Agop cymbalsmiths. These cymbals are a way of paying tribute to Mel's legacy.
