Regular price $0.00 $198.00 Sale

Brand: Turkish Cymbals

Features:

  • Hand crafted in Istanbul, Turkey
  • These unique “pocket-sized” hi-hats are designed for very quick foot action response with crisp and clear articulation, particularly in low dynamical situations. They are inspired by the instrument Krakeb, metal castanets found typically in percussion from Morocco. The top cymbal contains air holes that facilitate smooth air flow and less weight, allowing for fast and delicate expression.
  • These hi-hats are sonically very compatible with hand percussion instruments, providing for a very light feel without overbearing volume or prolonged sustain.
  • They are ideal for combining with such percussion as the Cajon and a wide variety of Frame Drums and other percussion from various cultures.
  • There are two models consisting of the ultra light and thin Tüy set and the hammered and darker Toprak set. The Toprak are slightly thicker than the Tüy and more suitable for performance with drumsticks, producing raw textures complimenting such genres as Jungle, Drum & Bass, and Funk.

Turkish Cymbals, Hand Cast, Hand Hammered, Hand Lathed. Peculiar hiss-tone that is high, sharp & piercing. Excellent for short, punctuated accents with an exotic atmosphere. For centuries, cymbals have been made in artisan workshops in Istanbul, Turkey, the acknowleged home of quality cymbal making. Cymbal alloys (most notably B20 alloys) have secret recipes passed through generations and each Turkish Cymbal is hand cast, rolled whilst hot, hammered by skilled artisans and tested to give the unique sound the Turkish Cymbals have, before being finished on a lathe. Only by hand making can the cymbal be worthy of a top-flight drummer. Each cymbal has its own individual overtones and "DNA", whilst being broadly similar to its brothers. Your sound is unique with Turkish Cymbals. Probably the finest cymbals on the planet.
