26.02.19 New Official Endorsement with Cymbal & Gong

I’m thrilled to announce my new official cymbal endorsement with the American company based in Turkey Cymbal & Gong LLC. You can find it in the best shop in the US, and from now on I’ll be their first endorser in Europe!

“Tim, the company’s founder, has been traveling between Portland and Istanbul, Turkey for a few years coaching a team of cymbal makers on developing a line of cymbals that look and sound like old Zildjians.
As a critic and a lover of ‘real’ old cymbals I must admit that these cymbals are quite simply some of the closest-to-vintage modern cymbals I’ve ever seen or heard. (“Andy Worley, TomTomMag”).

Thank you so much Tim for this opportunity and I can’t wait to travel around with my new Holy Grail Series Cymbals composed by:

– 20″ Holy Grail Ride
– 19″ Holy Grail Crash/Ride
– 20″ Holy Grail Flat Ride (w/ 2 rivets)
– 14″ Holy Grail HiHat
