About

Impression Cymbals is a realisation of experienced industry veterans and cymbalsmiths, established in 2010. Completely hand hammered, artisan crafted cymbals produced in Istanbul, Turkey, representing the pinnacle in cymbal making quality, vision, and sound. Each and every cymbal produced is a testament to six hundred years of cymbal making following traditional methods, perfected by generations of skilled masters.

Impressioncymbals.co.uk is owned and operated by Octave Distribution – the UK distributor for Impression Cymbals.

Octave Distribution is the trading name of Paul Redston.

Paul has been working in the music industry since 2004 and has been predominantly involved in music retail and wholesale over the years.

In March 2017, the opportunity to become the UK distributor for Impression Cymbals arose, and Paul jumped at the chance, having been involved in introducing them to the UK market back in 2011, while working for Percussion Plus.

With so many cheap inferior products on the market, it is a delight to be involved with such a well crafted product range.

Impression’s main focus is to produce truly outstanding cymbals, aimed at the most discerning drummers.

All Impression cymbals are hand hammered from B20 bronze.
