AGEAN! – Our newest cymbal brand…

AGEAN! – Our newest Cymbal Brand…

For years we’ve stocked the top cymbal brands in the world, and occasionally we look to try something a little more unique. Agean cymbals absolutely fit that bill for us so here’s a quick rundown of the newest pies to grace the bakery…


Based in Turkey, Agean’s mission statement is to produce 100% hand-crafted Turkish cymbals straight from their factory using traditional production methods to honor the humble beginnings of cymbal craftsmenship. What makes Agean cymbals even futher unique is the use of the B.25 formula. Essentially it’s a much finer composition in the manufacturing of the cymbals than B20 bronze used by many other cymbal brands. This allows these cymbals to be lighter and give a much brighter sound while maintaining the hand-hammered nature. Amongst their many lines of cymbals, we currently have three of the most popular in stock…

Currently we hold the Special Jazz, Treasure Jazz and Samir lines, each of which offer something slightly different than our current brands. The Special Jazz line are a very special hand hammered line full of charisma, perfect for drummers who desire a traditional Turkish cymbal sound. They cover an extremely broad frequency range making them a great choice not just for jazz musicians, but rock musicians too due to their clear stick definition and wash. Next up is the Samir line. Made with B20 bronze, the Samir series is finely hand hammered and lathed, providing projected attack with a dry sound. They’re very explosive and therefore thrive in Rock, Pop and Funk environments. Finally we have the Treasure Jazz series. Made with the same B.25 Bronze composition as the Special Jazz series, Treasure Jazz is Ageans freshly created cymbal line. The idea behind this line is to create cymbals that look and sound like old time jazz cymbals with such soft, buttery features. These cymbals really do feel like older lines produced back in the day making them feel new yet familiar.

If you’ve never heard of Agean cymbals and would love to come and try what we have in store, I highly encourage you to. They sound amazing and have a lot of scope across various musical styles. We also have them in stock online too so if you fancy taking a punt on something a little different…Agean is the way to go!
