Nefertitis, Arabics, then Moorish:D

I got a pair of Moorish in Light gauge. Sometime I like them, sometimes not. I can't make up my mind. I'll probably never end up with a pair of Arabics. If I get another chance to order at the reopen, there are other zills I'd rather have first.

What do you like about the Arabics and Moorish? What type of music do you primarily dance too?

I'm not sure a signature or lack of it helps on some models, but no those do not look right at all.

Interesting. Seller has relisted them SYRIAN zills, with the Saroyan references removed. I think this might have been a genuine error.

But it is a valuable alert; if there's money in it someone will be touting fakes sooner or later.

They look really neat and I would love to know what they sound like and the new bid price is much more reasonable ($9.99)

Several people messaged the seller and he replied and changed the listed to vintage Syrians and informed his bidder they are not Saroyans... Sadly I am sure with everything going on, there will be more listings like this.

I ended up getting the last pair of Concertmasters and Bronze Afghanis from Desert Veils. They arrived last week. Very Pricey!!! But very worth it. They are quickly becoming favorites.

There's a pair of small Grecians up for sale on ebay this week. Brass. They aren't labeled as small Grecians, but the description is the same.

There is a pair of silver afghanis up for sale on ebay. Bidding ends today. So far price is $85. I expect that to jump up. In addition to the small Grecians, there is a pair of Turkish Delights, Nefertiti's and Persians.

Saroyan Zills are NOT going away!!!!

Officially on behalf of Mr. Harry Saroyan and Saroyan Cymbals I would like to address the doubts and fears being expressed online regarding the future of Saroyan Zills and their availability for professionals and enthusiast in the music and dance industries. After 45 years as the leader in production, Harry has decided to turn over the reins of Saroyan Mastercrafts, and is currently securing new ownership for Saroyan Cymbals… In the meantime have no fear, Harry’s zills will again be available for purchase online (Saroyan Cymbals) on June 15, 2013 and will continue to be produced to meet the high demand for quality zills for many, many years to come. It is very important to Harry that his strict guidelines for superiority and craftsmanship are maintained, and he gives his personal promise that his fans will be very pleased with his successor. In the intervening time please feel free to contact me at heather@netreva.com with any questions or concerns… Sincerely, Heather Lint, Netreva Inc. c/o Saroyan Mastercrafts
