HAPPY CUSTOMER GALLERY

Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 4

 I'd love to see YOUR pics, and I bet others would too, so please send 'em my way!

Here's a couple of photos Craig sent me for the site. WOW!

Restored 1980's Vox (Trixon) hit: 10, 12  & 14: toms, 13" snare and 20" bass drum with 8" PDP add on tom.

Ufip Cymbals: Class Series - 14" Hi-hats, 8, 9 and 11" splashes, 14" samba splash, 16, 17, 18 and 19" crashes and 18" china. Rough Series - 13" hi-hats, 10" splash, 16 and 18" crashes, 18 china and 20" ride + Ufip 6" ice bell :-)
 

Rune has a mixture of Paistes and Sabians on his kit, and I even see some electronic goodies as well!
 

My good friend Seppo knows how to make me smile with pics of his new Yamaha kit, (with super-cool shorty toms custom worked by himself - yes, that's true!), all surrounded by Istanbuls.
 

Ivo sent me a couple of pics of his kits that he'd like to share with you all:
 
I've got two drum kits: one is a slingerland jazz kit with two sabian duo ride cymbals, and old 14' Zildjian HHats.
 
Another kit is premier XPK heritage kit, with pre-split Istanbul cymbals, except the hihat, which is post-split Istanbul :-)

 

 

Don scored a terrific Gretsch kit recently, and has it all set up with some new Istanbul Agop and Bosphorus turks.

24" Agop Turk Jazz Ride
19" Agop Turk Jazz Ride
18" Agop Turk Crash
14" Bosphorus Turk Dark Hats

 

The Istanbul Agop splash makes all the other pieces sound better. It's the splash I've been looking for. I wanted the Dave Tough/Don Lamond splash(?) sound as heard on old Woody Herman records. This nails it. It sounds like breaking glass. Thanks, Tony!

Left to right:
A Zildjian 18" medium thin crash, Ludwig Accent 16" floor tom, A Zildjian 20" ride, Percussion Plus 22" bass drum, Pearl oval badge 14" snare in Red Grain Pearl, Ludwig Accent 12" tom, Istanbul Agop 12" trad splash (right hand), really old 15" K Zildjian Constantinople (left hand), 15" UFIP Hi Hats

Here's a pic of the Agop Sultan 20" . . . I'm enjoying it!

21" Istanbul Mehmet
20" Istanbul Agop Sultan
19" Bosphorus trad
18" Bosphorus turk

For hats I'm just using New Beats, but those Meinl custom style 2s sound pretty nice!

Christian writes:

I just wanted to say THANK YOU AGAIN A MILLION TIMES for the 26" beauty: this cymbal is definitely the most complex and mature one I've ever played, I really LOVE this instrument! So I'm sending you some first pictures of my newborn setup.
 
The drums BTW are by Starclassic: a special edition set made for display at the Frankfurt Musik Messe some years ago with a 16" bassdrum, 8" & 10" racktoms, a 12" floortom and a matching 12" snare drum. 

 

David shot this pic of his jasper Fibes kit in amber yellow:

15" Old Istanbul K top/Old A band cymbal bottom,
20" Istanbul Agop Sig 2171g (8 paper fasteners as light rivets)

Matt's got a great bunch of cymbals here, and I'm loving his choices. He writes:

I just wanted to say thanks again for all the smooth transactions and for helping me to create my empire so here's a picture for your gallery.

 

Thank you so much on your help with the cymbal. It is beautiful and sounds fantastic!! I look forward to getting more cymbals from you in the future!

Alain shares this pic of his kit of his self-made kit from Keller shells. Pictured here are some Ks, and K Con, and an Istanbul crash.
 

Rob is always sending me new pics of his kits, and although he wants me to update them and delete the old, I think they're so unique, I keep adding him again instead!! This time he writes:

Sure to garner mixed reactions is my Whitney Sidekick Penguin Nesting Kit, which is essentially a sit-down cocktail kit. Capping these drums off are my latest acquisitions: 13" Masters Hi-hats, 18" Traditional Medium-Thin Crash, and 20" Traditional Medium-Thin Ride. They're beautiful! Thanks as always Tony...my search is over, cut me off. I'm done lol"
 

 

 

Here's Pat goin' to town on her kit decked out with some nice Paistes. There's a 24 Giant Beat ride in there somewhere!
 

Tim sent this pic of his kit where he proudly displays his 14 Mel Lewis Hats, 20 Bosphorus Masters, 22 Agop SE, and 22 New Orleans China.

Thanks Tim!

 

Hello, Tony
The fantastic Agop Vezir ride arrived yesterday. You are right - that's amazing ride. I like this sound, full of colors.

Here's my setup: (all from cymbalsonly):
SE 13'' Hi-Hat
Alchemy 10'' sizzle bell
12'' Trash hit
Vezir 22'' Jazz ride
SE 16'' Crash
Second Hi-Hat (far right) is an old Agop 14''. I got it about seven years ago from my teacher, and that's the reason, why I choose Agop, and why am I so happy now :)
With best regards, Aivars
 

Hi Tony
 
As you can see on the attached pic, I received today the new 17" hybrid crash on the right. Just to the left of it, is the "very" special Dry Ride 21" bought last year from you!
 
Thank you so much!
 
Max

 

 

Hey Tony!

I took a few pics of my kit setup today featuring the newest
addition: 22" Istanbul Agop Sultan Jazz Ride. It sounds great and looks amazing too. It's a nice compliment to the 21" Zildjian K Custom Special Dry Ride as well. The kit is a mid-70's era Ludwig Vistalite (Clear acrylic): 14" × 24" kick, 9" × 13" tom, 16" × 16"
floor tom. I play a 8" × 14" Brady Jarrah Block snare drum. also new to the setup is the 13" Istanbul Agop Sultan Hi-Hats. Thanks for the great new piece!

Jeremiah

 
 

Palo from Slovakia says his Sabian Manhattan Jazz Crash is sounding better and better with age, and sent this pic of his kit to share. The kick is an 18x16 made from a Yamaha floor tom, and says it "plays famously."
 

Hi-
I attached a picture of my humble Meinl collection so far (with my Zildjian china in the corner being the odd one out hahaha, don't think I could ever part with this one!) and the sand hats set up. :)
 
cheers,
 
Alex
 

Hi,

I got them today, and will setup them with my drum set and send you a picture soon. Came with very nice packaging box. Hope you can put this on your web pages instead of the cymbals setup : ). Thanks, Andre

 

For the moment this is what I'm running for the blues trio - 21" HHX Dry Ride, 20" HHX-Plosion Crash, 18" AAX-Plosion Crash, and either the 14" HHX-Celerators or an 18" HHX Evolution over an A Custom Projection crash (ala Steve Jordan/JJ Johnson). Not exactly what I want but it's getting me by.

I'll be eyeing off that Sand Ride next, and maybe a nice 22" K Con... ha-ha it never ends.

Once again thanks for all the help!

Andrew

 

Boo's kit is comprised of a numbner of sabians - most of which he "rescued" and repaired. If you look closely, you can see cut out areas on them! Excellent recycling, Boo!

T

 

Thanks Tony.  AWESOME cymbal.  It will go well with my others. I can't wait to beat it up a little bit.


Many thanks again.
 
Bryce
 
 

Hey Tony -

I had my first gig with the band I bought this cymbal for and had so much fun! It was everything I was hoping for. I'm even more excited for the 23" than before. Thought I would send a picture along with saying thanks.
Casey

 

 
 

Chris sent me this pic of his current cymbals, and what just might be the smallest bass drum on earth! :)
 

Hi Tony ~ I Love the CB ride.  It is everything a smokey-late-night-jazz drummer could want. 
Here's a picture of the cymbal and my 28 inch Wilson Bass Drum from 1921.  It still has a calfskin front head but the kick side is modern. 

My perfect hi-hat set up is the bottom bright and crisp traditional Bosphorus that is a bit on the heavy side, topped by the Versa.  What a wonderful sound they make together.
 
Chuck
 

 

Here's a pic of Cliff's awesome Bubinga Sigs, with an 8" that used to be mine! Cymbals are Sabian DeJohnette's, and I can't help but drool all over this pic!

Here's Craig's new kit, fitted with a selection of VERY shiny Zildjian A's!

Sincerely,

Tony,
 
I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE the Zildjian KW 22" Bounce Ride that I bought!!
Don't know if you remember, but you played them over the phone, and I bought the one you recommended.  It's awesome.   A drummer friend heard it and said- 'I gotta get one.' 
Here's a photo!
Once again, thanks so much for your help. You da man!
 
Take care,
Jack

Tony--received the package today, and immediately took them to a rehearsal. Amazing--the Versa hats really did just kill. My guitar player turned his amp up a few times! Ha! The ride is just great. It crashes, it rides, and when I laid into the edge, I made a giant wall of sound.

Attached is a picture, bird's eye view, of my home/practice set with the new cymbals!

Jonathan

 
 

Hey man, here's the maiden voyage of the new bronze. Iowa City Ped Mall Saturday Night Concert with Sarah Cram and the Derelicts. It was awesome.

The only one I didn't get from you is that 21" pre-split Istanbul ride I got fmany years ago.

It's a 50's Gretsch kit, with an Allegra snare. The smallest cymbal is bigger than the largest drum (except the bass drum).

Cheers!

Josh

 

 

Karl's pics are all over this gallery. :) He sends a new pic with every order. I love 'em Karl - keep 'em coming!! This pic announces his new Agop turk flatty. Also pictured is an Agop sig, a Mel Lewis ride, and Turk hats....he writes:

....love it Tony. Great short decay, fast response and a dry woody ping! It complements the other Agops so well. I also had the opportunity to use it on a gig with my piano trio. Honestly, I couldn't stop playing this beauty! It did a great job when it came to....anything. Versatile pie definitely.

Best,
Karl

 

Here's Kjetil kit with some Zildjian A Customs, and a Paiste china.
 

Thanks a lot for superb cymbals, Tony. I just finished a tour, and I used the cymbals I got from you. I especially love the agop signature series. They are alive and breathing! 
I will come back to you to order some more of them, A crash or a smaller/brighter ride ++
Lars
 

Hi Tony-

Attached is a small picture to put in your gallery, (the drums are Gretsch new classic be bop), and you know the cymbals: 14 Bosphorus Master Hats, 18 Master Vintage Crash, and 22 Master Vintage ride.

Laurent

 

Hi Tony

I received the crash on Monday afternoon. I can't tell you how happy I am with it. I made the right decision.

Thank you very, very much again for all your help and impeccable service.

I've attached a little picture to show you it's new home! ;)

I'll keep in touch

All the best!

Lee

 
 

Hey Tony,

the 15'' Agop Sig Hat is exactly what I needed.
Nicely dark and trashy washy, when played open, crisp when I hit it closed.
And it chicks - a fact I really need.
It rounds up my set up, because you can play anything with from straight ahead to very funky stuff.
Juts what I needed.

On the Photo is my "traditional" set up:

15'' Sig hats
20'' 30th anniversary, 22'' Epoch 22'' SE Jazz Ride

Leon

 

Wow Tony, these hats are great. So much quieter and smoother and my left foot is happy - and I am doing things with the hi hats new and different. They are a perfect match with the 20 flat ride I'd gotten earlier. The 22 is a bit harsher in contrast.
Also, a guy named peter commented on the hats and I sent him your way. :)

Lori
 

Hey Tony-
Here's a pic of my kit:
 
White Aqua Marine Pearl with black hard ware - have a 20" BD plus 8x7, 12x10 & 16x14.... Cymbals are Bosphorus Turk hats, K Custom LSR, Agop Mel Lewis, and Bosphorus Versa.
 
Very enjoyable! -Luke
 

Tony, here I'm sending some pics of my drum for your gallery. This is: CAF drum  '68 (Carlos Alberto Ferrando he was an Argentinian luthier) is made of guatambu wood, a south american wood, very similar to maple, but a little harder. The lugs are Ludwig exact copy. The cymbals are: two Bosphorus master series 20" and 18", a Zildjian K 17" dark thin and Zildjian Avedis 14" Hats.
regards, Manuel

 

This pic cracks me up every time I see it! :) Thanks for sending it, Marius, and enjoy the new cymbals!!

Tony

I was surprised, but also really grateful how quickly the cymbals arrived! I can't wait to try them out tomorrow with the local big band!

Thank you very much. The kit is a Gretsch New Classic. Marvelous kit, sounds like a dream.

Thank you again, and I hope to deal with you again in the future.
Regards,
Matt
 

Tony- Here's a shot of the K Cons I got from you awhile back.

Kit is Risen Drums 16x20, 8x10, 14x14. Snare is 1961 Ludwig Supraphonic my dad bought in high school.
Hats- 16" K Dark MT Crash bottom with K Con Crash on top. Cymbals L-R: 20" K Con T High, 22" K Con MT Low, 18" K EFX, 20" K Con MT Low.

Hi Tony
 
The cymbals arrived, and are awesome! They sound very good !
 
Attached, a pic to say thanks!

Hi -

Here's a pic of my kit for you!


10" 14" 16" 18"

Cymbals:
14" Zildjian K/Z hi-hat
16" Sabian HHX o-zone crash
18" Zildjian K Con crash
21" Zildjian K Custom special dry ride
22" Zildjian K Con Med High


Mette

 

Hi Tony,
 I wanted you to know that the cymbal worked out beautifully... I actually sold the old K I was playing, and replaced it with the cymbal you picked out for me. It is really a remarkable cymbal, a great low volume ride and contrast ride, but crashes about the best to my ear that I have heard... for my playing, it is perfect!

I always said I would send you photos for your gallery as soon as a cymbal I got from you landed in my main set up... and that Bosphorus is now my main left ride and always there... I still have an old K 22 on the right, and a set of old K 15 hats, but the Bosphorus is now their partner...

Thanks again!
Michael

Thanks for all!

Hi Tony!

How are you these days?
I am quite busy with a lot of playing both live and studio sessions, and remembered that I wanted to send you some pictures of my new kit and all of the cymbals I've gotten from you!

I am really pleased with all off the cymbals, and everyone seems to agree with me as well :)

Thanks Tony!

Regards, Nils

 

Hi Tony,
I have to tell ya, I was waiting for this package like little child, as I hoped that finally I could be able to replace the lifeless paiste 2002. So today I tried them, and they are grrrreat!! 
 
Exactly what I wanted, dark, but not dead, bright, but not "pingy".
Live with colors, the "chick" sound is great as well as the closed hi-hat position. The open sound is crisp but not too much.
In all great cymbals.
 
So now officially all my cymbals bought from you, and I know that you love to put pictures of full kits with your cymbals, so attached to this mail is a pic of my set with all the cymbals :)
Thanks! O
 

Hi Tony -

Many thanks for your excellent service. ;-) Here's the Agop 22" 30th anniversary ride on my kit. What a fantastic cymbal and the only one in DK I'll bet! You can count on me coming back in the future, that's for sure. Best regards, Paul

Hello Tony!

I'm sending an e-mail for tell you that my cymbal arrived here!!

Here's a picture of my drum kit with the new Turk!

Thanks for while!

Rafael
 

Tony!
The cymbals arrived on Thursday, I had the chance yesterday to take 'em out for a rock rehearsal and a jazz gig; I've thrown in a couple of happy snaps of the pies in action.

In short; I love them. I'd flood you with adjectives but I'm sure you've heard it all before.
Thanks for all your prompt assistance, and consider yourself highly recommended to all my drumming peers.

-Ricki (who's trying so hard to not pull the trigger on another couple of cymbals, already!)
No doubt we'll be talking again soon, ha!
 

Hi Tony - here is a picture of me with some of the cymbals I’ve purchased from you over the years. It is a nice overhead shot of my vintage Slingerland kit and features your cymbals.

Thanks,

Rob

 

Hey Tony,

Thought you might like a picture of some of the goodies you sent me.

Thanks!

Roger
 

Hey Tony,

I got the cymbals fine, and MAN! they sing. Couldn't be happier.

The Master Vintage ride has *the* jazz ride sound I've been looking for, so great to play and absolutely no dead spots. The crash on it is so dark and lovely as well, and hey, it looks like a winner too. And I managed to convert a friend of mine who was a big Zildjian K Custom fan to Bosphorus with this cymbal as well, so that's a good sign.

The MV hats are similar to the ride, great sound, great to play. The compliment the ride very well and I reckon the top hat sounds great played by itself as a separate cymbal as well. Very happy. The Trad crash rounds off the lot. It has a really nice accented quality to it, and the decay is perfect for how I use it.

I've attached a few pics. Hopefully these'll give you an idea of how great they look, and how well they suit the kit.

Many thanks, you've been a pleasure to deal with,

Rory
