Arabic = Sagat

Turkish = Zils

You will need a set of four cymbals; some cymbals are sold in pairs, so be sure you get four cymbals to play.

For beginners I recommend zils with two slots for elastic. Some zils have only one hole; these zils tend to be wriggly and harder to control. One-holed cymbals are nice for speed but I recommend them only for advanced players.


Saroyan is an East Coast, USA very reputable  manufacture of zils and other supplies. You may order cymbals directly from their website (

These Nefertiti cymbals are good for beginners because they are small, light, high quality, and they have a pleasant tone. <iframe style="width:120px;height:240px;" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" src="//">
