Cindy Blackman plays a variety of music. Her OM cymbals, tonally, give you the vibier end of the golden era of Jazz. Focused, metallic sticking with a dark, dry wash and a thunderous crash. Great for situations which require a traditional Turkish sound.

Mehmet and Agop named their company after the city that has been home to the epitome of high-quality cymbals for many, many years – Istanbul.
