    The Istanbul Agop 19-inch Mel Lewis Signature Crash Ride Cymbal is a signature crash/ride from Istanbul, designed in conjunction with Mel Lewis, an American jazz drummer. The cymbal offers a dry crash sound which is well suited to a range of drumming styles and genres. The crash/ride also employs a lighter hammering and a finer lathing for enhanced stick definition to complement the subtle dark overtones. Ideal for any modern day drummer or percussionist, the Istanbul Agop 19-inch Mel Lewis Signature Crash Ride Cymbal is the perfect compliment to any drumming setup.

    Born in 1929, Mel Lewis was an American jazz drummer and session musician who was well known across the music industry. Nominated for 14 Grammy Awards, Lewis was remembered for his work with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, later named Mel Lewis and the Jazz Orchestra. Lewis recorded and performed with the band throughout his career until his death at the age of 60. Recognised for his unique cymbal techniques and styles, Lewis insisted on playing genuine Turkish-made cymbals, and his standard setup consisted of a range of handmade Istanbul cymbals.
