Bosphorus Cymbals was established in 1996 by three master cymbal smiths, Hasan Seker, Ibrahim Yakici and Hasan Ozdemir. These masters learned their skills under the apprenticeship of the first family of Turkish Cymbal Makers and have perfected the skill of a hand-made instrument. At Bosphorus, one man with one hammer makes cymbals one at a time. They call this an essential human dimension the “Soul of the Cymbal”. Once you hear the difference, you won't settle for anything less.
