Development of Cymbals
Long and intensive work and the inspiration of renowned drummers have gone into the development of Anatolian cymbals to make then perfect down to the last detail. Our goal was to create high-end cymbals that set new standards with their sound and versatility. We can proudly say that we have achieved this goal. Anatolian cymbals offer you first-rate cymbal sounds with a musicality never before known. Their warmth, projection, clarity and durability will impress you. They are truly one of a kind.
Anatolian cast bronze cymbals are crafted from the Anatolian B20plus alloy, consisting of 80% copper with 20% tin, as well as a secret special additive known only to Anatolian.
Anatolian cymbals are manufactured in our own foundry and production facility. In the first step of the manufacturing process, blanks are cast out of the alloy. This is followed by a complex tempering process. The blanks are rolled over and over again in different directions and heated repeatedly. This involved process causes a change in the molecular structure, which is an important basis for the density, flexibility and durability of the metal. Next, the disc are precisely cut to shape for further processing. The Anatolian cymbal marters, absolute authorities in their field, now begin the time-consuming job of hammering the cymbals by hand.
After hammering the cymbals by hand our cymbal masters then lathe them and put the finishing touches to them. During every stage of production the cymbals are subject to constant quality control before going through the uncompromising final check.
This incredibly involved production process, combined with the marterly hand craftsmanship of our cymbal masters - who cannot be replaced by any machine - and a quality control that is performed to the highest standards, make our philosophy come true: "ANATOLIAN - The world's finest cymbals".
