Istanbul Mehmet Cymbals Traditional Series CH24 24-Inch China Cymbals

Model: CH24   |    Mpn: CH24   |    Ean: 8680782071003   |    PartNumber: CH24   |   Asin: B00JZEX77K

The Traditional Series sound is suited for pretty much every style of music imaginable. The classic concept of these fully lathed cymbals has proven its value through the years. From the earliest jazz drummers and bebop pioneers, to heavy metal and the latest stylistic evolutions, the Traditional Series encompasses the sounds you're looking for. Dark. Responsive. Controllable. Musical. ABOUT ISTANBUL MEHMET - Mehmet Tamdeger learned his art from Mikhail Zilcan, the grandson of Kerope Zilcan, after whom the Zilcan K series is named. In the 1950s, he worked in the K. Zilcan factory in Istanbul. At the age of nine Mehmet Tamde er started to work for Mikhail Zilcan. Mikhail Zilcan and Kirkor K kyan taught him every aspect of this ancient Turkish art, based on a history that stems back to the early 17th century. The Istanbul brand name was adopted by a cymbal works established by two cymbal smiths, Mehmet Tamdeger and Agop Tomurcuk. At that time, they had over three decades of cymbal making experience. Mehmet and Agop named their company after the city that has been home to the epitome of high quality cymbals for many, many years: Istanbul. These cymbals were first exported to the U.S. in 1984, first under the name "Zildjiler", and soon afterwards as "Istanbul". Both craftsmen signed each cymbal and many of these cymbals are now collectors' items. After Agop Tomurcuk' s unexpected death in July 1996, Mehmet decided to continue the production of cymbals under his own name, stanbul Mehmet. A lot has changed since then, but his belief in the richness and the character of a handmade cymbal will always remain. Machines don't have ears. That's why we continue to make our cymbals according to the ancient tradition - with an open eye towards the music that's being made now, and in the future.
