When it comes to tradition, few cymbal makers have the pedigree of Istanbul Mehmet. Built on the experience that can only come from being in the cymbal game for over 60 years, Istanbul Mehmet founder Mehmet Tamdeger is one of the most revered men in the world of cymbal production today. Istanbul Mehmet cymbals are handmade, and that's a quality you can really hear. As a matter of fact, the first cymbals that Istanbul Mehmet exported to the United States were actually signed by Mehmet Tamdeger. As you can imagine, these cymbals are now considered collector's items. The simple fact is this: machines do not have ears, so Istanbul Mehmet cymbals are made by skilled craftsmen who can hear how they sound as they go through the building process. With this in mind, you can take solace in knowing that whichever Istanbul Mehmet you choose, you're getting an instrument of unparalleled quality.

So which Istanbul Mehmet cymbals are right for you? Well, that's a matter of need and personal preference. Say, for example, you're in the market for a ride cymbal; you'll definitely want to see what the Mehmet Legend Ride Sizzle has to offer. This traditional, 21-inch cymbal is renowned for its rich, dry tone that makes it a real hit with jazz drummers. It also features rivets that go a long way to take its sustaining properties to the next level.

Maybe you'd rather get your hands on a splash cymbal. If that's the case, spend some time with the Sultan Series Splash. With a richly defined tone that is full of unique character that is just waiting to be unlocked, this cymbal will quickly become the secret weapon of your kit. Highlighted by great stick definition and an unlathed cup for a strong, compact bell sound, this cymbal perfectly blends the vintage sound so many love with modern standards for an amazing combination. 

And that's only the beginning! From hi-hats and crash cymbals, to China cymbals and more, Istanbul Mehmet has all of your needs covered. By taking the time to build their cymbals properly, Istanbul Mehmet has earned their place among the great craftsmen in the industry.
