Istanbul Traditional 12” Hi-Hat Cymbals


Fast, cutting, with a tight stick response…


Istanbul Traditional 12” Mini Hi-Hat Cymbals

Istanbul Traditional 12” Hi-Hat cymbals are ideally used as an auxiliary set of Hi-Hats for special effects purposes. However, there is nothing stopping you using these as your primary set, especially if you are playing the sort of music which a uniquely sized pair of Hi-Hats will add to the flavour. Whilst daring to be different, these Hi-Hat cymbals possess the warm, dark, fat and soft sounds expected from the Istanbul Traditional cymbals series.

Istanbul’s Traditional Series cymbal sound is suited for pretty much every style of music imaginable. The classic concept of these fully lathed cymbals has proven its value throughout the years, from the earliest Jazz drummers and Be-Bop pioneers, right up to modern Heavy-Metal players.

Never resting on their laurels, Istanbul Traditional cymbals continue to evolve, developing and providing the sounds for the needs of the cutting-edge stylistic revolutionary players. Traditional Series cymbals continue to explore the musical possibilities derived from the darkest, responsive and pleasingly controllable cymbal sounds.

About Istanbul Cymbals

Istanbul cymbals were born from the collaboration between Mehmet Tamdeğer and Agop Tomurcuk, now cymbal-smiths with decades of joint cymbal-making experience. 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.
