Turkey is the birth place of modern cymbals. This is where the ancestors of the  -(dj)ians learned and practiced their craft, before they moved to the US, and eventually became the mass-and machine producing "Mac-(dj)ians" of today.
The two founders of the original Istanbul factory stayed and continued the tradition.
While jazz players in the US have always appreciated these fine instruments, drummers in rock, funk, fusion and other genres have only more recently begun to catch on.

                           My name is Michael, and I am an  Authorized Dealer* for Istanbul Mehmet Cymbals in the US.  While there must be at least a dozen manufacturers of Turkish Cymbals by now, only Mehmet Tamdeger has been at it for sixty  some years.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       I sell only Istanbul Mehmet cymbals here.                                   
 I have been playing them myself for many years, and believe they represent the very best quality and value in Handmade Turkish Cymbals on the US market - especially for the price at which I can bring them to You.
