Story of SIHI Cymbals

Our story

I will tell you a bit of Sihi cymbals history and how you can order Sihi cymbals. I’ve played with over a thousand Here’s a bit about the history of Sihi Cymbals and how you can order Sihi cymbals. I’ve played with over a thousand different cymbals during my years as a drum store owner, selling new and used cymbals. This gives you some idea of what I expect from cymbals. But, more importantly, I’ve spoken with hundreds of drummers about cymbals: how they should and should not sound, and what’s great about this cymbal and not so great about that cymbal.

Idea for my own cymbal brand

The idea of creating my own cymbals started developing little by littletook seed gradually until I just had to do something about it! TheFinland does not have a strong tradition inof cymbal making is not that great here in Finland; actually, it does not exist.. So, where to go? Where all the iconic cymbals are being made in: Istanbul! After quite a lot of searching and talking with people in the industry, I found it! Perfectwhat I was looking for: expert cymbal smiths with tons of experience and a massive passion for this project.

LotsAfter lots of talking, going back and forth, and several days in a factory and, Sihi cymbalsCymbals were born! All Sihi cymbalsCymbals are made from scratch, as traditional, legendary Turkish cymbals are. Cast from high-quality bronze (known as B20), rolled, hammered, milled, finished, polished all by highly professional cymbal smiths. Sound is the main criteria cymbalcriterion. Cymbal smiths listen to the cymbals, and from there, decide when isthere has been enough hammering, and milling… So that’s. That’s why there are littleminor differences in the weights of the cymbals.

So, where does that” Sihi”the name “Sihi” come from? Well, it was initially, it was a joke and became the working title, and obviouslyevidently, it stayed. But “Sihi”” comes from the Finnish word”  “sihisee” – sizzles” – sizzle in English. It is also a slang word for brewed beverages, “Sihi-juoma.”
