Crescent CymbalsSabian Cymbals

In order to meet their customer and artist demands for new cymbals, Cymbal Masters (makers of Crescent Cymbals) will begin offering select Crescent models in North America, hand-made to their exact specifications, by Sabian, LTD.  Crescent’s Istanbul production managers Kadri Kayan and Guclu Arslan will continue to produce present models in Turkey using ancient hand made traditions.

Sabian CEO, Andy Zildjian says, “I am very happy to be working with Cymbal Masters.  I am impressed with their passion for and knowledge of cymbals. This is an opportunity to expand our tradition of hand hammering cymbals, originally brought to Sabian by Kerope Zilcan.”

Crescent CEO, Michael Vosbein adds, “This new relationship offers Crescent the chance to expand our sound palette with production on two continents, taking advantage of the best craftsmanship in both the old and new worlds.”
