Ibrahim Diril Cymbals USA, LLC is the exclusive distributor of Diril cymbals in the United States, Ibrahim Diril Music is a Turkish company operating in Samsun, Turkey and starting with raw copper and tin, creating the finest modern production Turkish cymbal today. We have been lucky enough to forge an exclusive relationship with this man and his company and are preparing to enter the largest market for cymbals in the world- the United States. His production facilities include a foundry, where he produces and casts has own bronze. He then rolls the bronze, heating it in wood burning ovens between rolling. He has 12 hammerers, who hand hammer each cymbal in the time-honored fashion of human hand holding a hammer and striking the cymbal until it is perfect. The finished cymbal is then lathed on one of Ibrahim's four lathes. Finally it is tested by ear, and only then does it receive the Diril die stamp and ink stamp.
The quality of Turkish hand made cymbals has long been known to be superior to machine made cymbal, some of which are not even made from cast bronze, but rather from a sheet of bronze that arrives in big rolls and is inferior in that it has only been rolled in one direction. Cast bronze is continuously rolled and heated, then rolled in another direction and heated again, thus strengthening the crystalline structure of the bronze itself. Further, Diril Cymbals are all made from B-20 bronze, also known as bell bronze, which is made of 80% copper and 20% tin. Sheet bronze is typically B-8 or 92% copper and 8% tin. Most experts consider B-20 to be a far superior material from which to make cymbals.
