Pergamon Cymbals “The Art of Making Cymbals” is an ancient Anatolian trade which was perfected by Armenian Masters. This ancient art starts around early 17th century during Ottoman Empire. And still continues with the same hand crafted prosess as hundreds 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.
