At the age of nine Mehmet Tamdeğer started to work for Mikhail Zilcan, grandson of Kerope Zildcan. Mikhail Zilcan and Kirkor Küçükyan taught them every aspect of this ancient Turkish art. Based on a history that stems back to the early 17th century. When Mehmet Tamdeğer and Agop Tomurcuk founded the Istanbul Cymbal Company in the early 1980s, they had over three decades of cymbal making experience. Mehmet and Agop named their company after the city that has been home to the epitome of high quality cymbals for many, many years: Istanbul. After Agop Tomurcuks unexpected death in July 1996, Mehmet decided to continue the production of cymbals under his own name Istanbul Mehmet.

If, after inspection by Istanbul Mehmet personnel, it is determined that the cymbal failed under normal use, a replacement cymbal of the same size and series will be provided free of charge.
