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.

TESTIMONIALS

"It plays and sounds just like the initial video I watched and referenced in my first email reaching out to you.  The stick attack is very clear and having nice definition.  The wash of such a thin ride does not build up much... the stick definition remains and the wash is very nice (minimal) and does not overpower the stick patterns."

Re: 22" Marrakes Ride

"We are talking about a very warm and responsive sound. Boy oh boy, and the attack of these cymbals, you won’t regret the purpose in this investment..."

Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that the cymbal arrived in good condition.  I used it last Friday at my gig and I couldn't be happier!  

 

It was exactly what I was hoping for, nice and bright but not ringy, cut through the guitars with ease, opened up well when I needed it to without being overpowering or washy.

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
