    New information from someone who emailed Harry Saroyan and got back this reply about him going out of business.

    "Hi Julie,
    THAT'S NOT TRUE !

    After almost 50 years of service to the Belly Dance Community I have decided
    to put my business for sale. At the time being we will not be manufacturing on
    a large scale anymore, as one of our workers retired and the other got married
    and moved to Florida."

    Apparently, if he finds a buyer, they will be back at some point, but right now they are not producing. There is hope!

    Thank you for your information. I went ahead and ordered 3 pair so I've got enough to last for a while. I love their tone and enjoy them. I found some at Belly Dance | Welcome to Bellydance.com

    I think it's wise to buy what we want as we find it, because who knows how long it will be before production comes back? Hopefully sooner than later. In the mean time, glad I ordered a bunch for myself and a bunch of other students in my area.

    I think buying from the "original" is worthwhile, who knows if someone new can make them the same, or will continue too over time, they may have ideas of their own. But it's nice to know they could be available again at some stage.

    Well I just ordered my pair. I've already received an e-mail confirmation but until I have them in hand I'm going to worry about something going wrong. I didn't need to eat this week anyway right?

    I figure I can survive on beans and rice till payday and I am wondering if ordering 3 pairs was enough or if I should order a couple more before they are all gone.....LOL.

    Just found that Desert Veils here in Aussie have some. Shipping would be a lot cheaper for Aussies & NZ'ers. But they are available for anyone who wants to buy if they can't find the ones they want closer to home Zills: Saroyan and Egyptian Zils, Sagets, Cymbals

    I told a friend of mine about the low stock & she just let me know that quite a few are available at Desert Veils. You have to place your order to the site owner via email which is on her website DESERT VEILS BELLY DANCE:ORDERS
