For hundreds of years Turkish Cymbal Smiths have been nurtured ,developed and have become Master Cymbal Smiths by adopting and working this process. The cymbal smiths and the process are proven by the unique musicality of the cymbals.

AMEDIA CYMBAL MODELS LISTING
AHMET LEGEND CYMBALS
Two extra steps in the creative process give the Antiques their unique sound and look. After an initial hammering and sharp lathing, they are heavily supplemental-hammered by master hammer smiths Shaban and Ahmet Baykusak.
Then for their defining sound and finish, the Antiques are finally given one more pass through the wood-fired furnace.
The rides are low-pitched with a dry tight wash, the crashes earthy and explosive. Hi-hat pairs are heavy with an aggressive open wash and powerful chick.
Classic rides, for example, come in many styles including ping, rock, custom dry, jazz, mini cup, crash-ride and sizzle, but all share a unifying look.
Classics are versatile cymbals; responsive with shimmering, musical overtones. A variety of timbres reside in each Classic cymbal, waiting for your touch to bring them to life.
With its Red branding and unique dark finish, the Kommagenes are preferred by jazz drummers. The ancient image of this cymbal was invented by founder Ahmet Baykusak.
An Un-hammered bell, lightly lathed with magical appearance, the Kommagene will have the ear of many drummers.
MARCO BARESI (info coming soon)
MINICUP (info coming soon)
OLD SCHOOL CYMBALS (info coming soon)
RAW ROCK CYMBALS
VIGOR ROCK CYMBALS
With their heavily hammered but un-lathed bells and tightly lathed bows, the Vigor cuts but does not bore. Complex timbres will hold your interest long after you would have sold your major-brand rockers for a loss on e-bay…
VIGOR ROCK SHINY
Amedia’s link with the mysterious roots of Turkish cymbal making is master cymbal smith Eremya Arzat. Witness to all the secrets of the old-time cymbal-makers, his memories of the halcyon days and how cymbals were made in the old Agahaman, Istanbul factory are forged into every Amedia Vintage cymbal.
Lathed paper thin by Hamdusana Baykusak, the Vintage cymbals open quickly when crashed then get right out of the way, while still providing clear stick definition for your intricate ride patterns. The rides’ breathy wash is the perfect comp behind piano and reeds, while the Hi Hats provide a satisfying, low-pitched chick.
The rides are strong with a great bounce and clear bell; the crashes pack a punch and hold lots of potential sound energy. Hi-hats are loud with a tight stick response. The Vintage vibe is enhanced by lack of printed logos on the cymbals. Look for the Amedia cold-stamp to ensure you are buying an authentic Amedia Vintage.
