"For me Istanbul Mehmet has so many amazing models under one roof it’s crazy. I’ve always been a cymbal geek and looked for variety. What really gets me is how dynamic they are, I play with a set of hats and too rides most of the time and I can get so may different sounds from them. When touring its the only gear of mine I absolutely need to have. They are amazing hand crafted instruments and they become an extension of you and your playing."

"Pour moi, Istanbul Mehmet a tellement de produits incroyable sous la meme famille,  c'est fou. J'ai toujours chercher pour des sons complex et unique. Ca que j'aime vraiment c'est comment dynamique qu'ils sont. Je joue la plupart de mes spectacles avec deux ride et un set des hats. Avec ca j'ai vraiment toute les sons que j'ai besoin. Quand je suis sur la route, mes cymbales sont la seule chose qui sont un necessité. C'est des instruments incroyable fait a la main et ils devient un extension de soi meme."
