EP 37 - The History of Istanbul Agop Cymbals with Sezar Inceoglu

Sezar teaches us the full History of Istanbul Agop, dating back to its origins in the Zildjian K Factory where Agop Tomurcuk learned how to make cymbals. We discuss how hand hammered cymbals are made and why Turkey is so special for cymbal making. We learn all about the history of the different lines Istanbul Agop offers and also the story behind the split with Istanbul Mehmet.

Sezar Inceoglu is the International Sales Manager at Istanbul Agop and is a wealth of knowledge who is very passionate about the company.
