ISTANBUL (AA) - Turkey's musical instruments are world-famous with musicians and bands like Pink Floyd, Simply Red, and La Luz using them, a manufacturer said.

Istanbul Mehmet Cymbals exports 95% of its handmade instruments to 50 countries, owner Mehmet Tamdeger told Anadolu Agency.

Turkey exported musical instruments worth nearly $100 million during the last 10 years, especially to Germany, the U.S., the Netherlands, Switzerland and South Korea, official figures said.

Tamdeger added that Turkey was the most important cymbal production hub in the world.
