The Red Story



‘Red Cymbals’ are an Australian company whose cymbals are handcrafted in our factory in Istanbul Turkey using methods that are part of a time honoured tradition, spanning many centuries since the 1600’s. We work with drummers who admire quality and excellence. Red Cymbals cater for a range of styles and sound from Dark, Dry, Trashy to Bright and can customise cymbals to suit your sound.

Red Cymbals has a vision of 'putting people first', promoting the development of a community of drummers who come together and have each others backs in good and challenging times.

We support people centric and positive mental health initiatives (Support Act, Just One Cambodia and the Missing Persons Advocacy Network) through monthly donations from the sale of Red Cymbals as well as running events to promote positive well-being and mental health. Red Cymbals is especially excited about supporting Just One Cambodia, an organisation proving training in employment and business development for people living in poverty in Cambodia.

We run regular jams/drum sheds to get together and share ideas as well as to create a space where people can come and chat about whatever is going on: the gigs they are playing and also if they are struggling, just need a listening ear or a hand working through a life issue. We also have our own drum school in Pakenham, Victoria, Australia to promote drumming and music education.

Support is offered for drummers and creative people who might be going through a tough time, to assist people in finding the help they need to stay healthy AND keep on drumming and creating! 

Feel free to reach out as we are always up for a chat!
