At the age of 9, Mehmet Tamdeger started working for Mikael Zilcan, the grandchild of Kerope Zilcan. Mikael Zilcan and Kirkor Kucukyan trained Mr. Tamdeger in every facet of this classic Turkish art, having a history that originates back into the early 17th century. Once finishing a tremendously busy 60 plus years at cymbal making, Mr. Tamdeger is incredibly happy that we're still creating original, traditional Turkish cymbals for today’s contemporary music.

Mehmet claims to have perfected his art from Mikhail Zilcan (sometimes spelled Zildjian), the grand son of Kerope Zilcan after whom the Zildjian K series is named. In the 1950s, he worked in the Zildjian factory in Istanbul. Agop was the plant foreman at Zildjian K factory.

They will remind you of the great old original Turkish cymbals that you know and love. Comes with a certificate of authenticity, hand signed by Mehmet himself
