ABOUT CONSTANTINE CYMBALS

Master cymbalsmith Sertan Oztopuz crafts each of these instruments by hand in Istanbul, Turkey. Sertan spent 32 years at Istanbul (Both Agop and Mehmet after the split) where he was trained and eventually taught the use of the coveted Turkish B20 alloy. From there he started what would soon become the leading Turkish cymbal company. 

Now available for the first time in the United States are Sertan’s authentic Turkish cymbals. Constantine offers rides, crashes, hi-hats, splashes, chinas, and symphonic cymbals and gongs. Contact me to discuss creating the perfect handcrafted cymbals for you. 

All the Constantine cymbals in stock have video demos!  You can also hear all video demos for current and sold stock on our YouTube page.

Constantine Cymbals are handmade using the authentic Turkish B20 bronze formula and techniques.  The metal is carefully prepared, rolled, and lathed to make the perfect cymbal.  Choose from one or more of traditional lathing, fine lathing, wide lathing, or unlathed (raw) techniques, with uniform hammered surfaces to heavily hammered and pocketed surfaces. We even have sand blasted surfaces.  The combination of techniques create everything from traditional cymbal sounds to varying degrees of dark or bright, dry or washy, smooth or textured sounds.  Additional techniques such as hole drilling further add to the palette of possibilities to all models.   Most designs are extremely versatile as both rides and crashes.  Varying sizes and weights to these techniques add yet another layer of sonic possibilities.  We stock a nice selection of sounds to fit virtually any musical need.  However, we can also order anything we don't have in stock, or even help you create virtually anything you can think up!  Reach out to Todd for more information at todd@constantinecymbals-usa.com
