"I had been searching for "my sound" from cymbals for over a decade, and finally found them with Istanbul Mehmet. Lucky for me, they wanted to work together and endorse me!
I wanted a big, beautiful 70s rock sound in the vein of Bonham and Moon, and Mike & Nick helped me pick and custom order the right cymbals direct from Turkey. I honestly get asked at every show where my cymbals are from and where can they be bought. I feel like nobody in the country has the setup that I do, and that's a very cool feeling.
This is a family run business, and Nick and his team feel like family to me. How many endorsees can say that? They are the real deal, and it's an honour to have them on my team."
