All TURKISH CYMBALS are made of a superior alloy
created through a secret, timehonored “recipe” that has passed down
through the centuries, from father to son. (Suffice it to say that
copper and tin are the primary ingredients.) We buy all of our precious
metals in bulk, and these are melted down carefully in order to
extract the alloy. Unlike other major cymbal manufacturers, we never
use ready-made discs! No short-cuts to quality! We know the importance
of selecting raw materials by hand.
Our Master Cymbal Smith is personally involved in the selection
process from start to finish. Anything that fails to meet his impeccable
standards is rejected.
TURKISH CYMBALS are always made from scratch, and
this is part of the reason they not only sound great, but last forever!
Our Master Cymbal Smith uses old-world wisdom, combined with
cutting-edge technology, to determine whether or not a batch of copper
or tin is pure enough to grace the molds in our ovens. And this
guarantee is what allows you, the customer, to feel confident that
every time you purchase a TURKISH cymbal, you are getting precisely what
you pay for: The right materials needed to achieve a perfect balance
of softness and thickness. Because no matter how expertly a cymbal is
formed and finished—it must come from the right metal, or it does not
deserve to be called TURKISH! That’s why we can say with confidence,
“Test your metal on ours!”TM
