“The Art of Making Cymbals” is an ancient Anatolian trade which was perfected by the Armenian Masters. This ancient art starts around the early 17th century during the Ottoman Empire. And still continues with the same hand crafted prosess as hundreds of years ago. That traditional style gives each “Turkish Cymbal” its unique sound. This art requires experinced masters who can feel the spirit of the cymbal. It’s a long journey to becoming a cymbal master. Now in Turkey we have third generation masters.
Pergamon Cymbals was founded by third generation masters, Saadettin KOÇ and Hakan FİDAN. They have more than 50 years of experince combined making cymbals. They made many awarded cymbals. They know exactly what musicians want. Cymbal making is not a job for these three masters, but a passion.
