    Default Saroyan Zills

    There are rumours going around that Saroyan is closing down permanently.

    On the website it says to check back, though.

    Does anyone know what's going on?
    Wild and free my effing arse! Use another word!

    I hear he's retiring and closing up shop. He's a nice man, always liked his products and enjoyed chatting. Now he can relax!

    Oh man, I hope they have a huge warehouse full of zils in stock or that he has taught someone to continue the production. I want zills!

    Apparently people are snapping up Saroyan cymbals fast. If you want some, now is the time to get them before the price goes sky high.

    I received an email from Naj at the bellydanceshoppe this morning it say:

    A Fond Goodbye and Thanks to Harry Saroyan

    At 75 years old Harry Saroyan has chosen to retire. He sends his thank you and good bye to all who have been his customers over the years. We thank him for his service to the bellydance community and wish him a happy retirement. Naj
    P. S. I was informed over the weekend that his retail website is now closed. Saroyan manufacturing lost several of their employees several months ago and stopped selling finger cymbals wholesale.

    Due to an extreme shortage. I am doing my best to fill orders for Saroyan zils as quickly as possible. I will fill all finger cymbal orders immediately.
    Thank you for understanding
    Sincerely,

    Naj

    Hell !!!!!

    With Suleiman gone, are we just now left with Turquoise (and those imports)? Ali's not going to live forever either.

    I'm seconding the hope that there's a warehouse somewhere. Dahlal is already almost sold out.

    Default Finger cymbal emergency

    Saroyan Mastercrafts has closed their doors! Mr. Saroyan is retiring and there will be no more Saroyan Zills! If you can find them, BUY NOW!

    Someday we will tell our descendants how we lived through the great finger cymbal crisis of 2013. Like the gas shortages in the '70s. Lines around the block and soaring prices.

    I have 2 sets of Saroyan zills & I'm not the biggest zill player in the world so they'll last me - the few that are still available are much more expensive than when I bought mine a few years ago. Glad I got them when I did

    Yea, I got the same thing. Although my Zildjians are my faves, they're not for everybody and Saroyans are great Zills too. I heard something about he's trying to sell the company.
