Mel Lewis was the first Istanbul Agop endorser. 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 cymbal smiths. These cymbals are the way of paying tribute to Mel’s legacy in the best way we know how.
