    Mehteran Cymbals

    Hey all. I just discovered a new Turkish brand called Mehteran Cymbals. It was started by one of the Diril brothers who used to work with Meinl (as I think they all did) on the Byzance line.

    Well that was frustrating

    I'm not entirely sure if this belongs here or in the general discussion forum. If this is too long I apologize. Just say so and I'll edit or remove. I made a thread about opinions amd thoughts on my new cymbals. There was much help. I had ended up going with some used PST7's (because of my...

    Sabian XSR Monarch Series

    Anybody played them? A lot of the sound files for them on YT sound pretty interesting and I kind of like them. A couple however the crashes sound completely dead. Not sure if it's just the person pkaying them or what.
