Halil first commenced his cymbal and darbukas crafting in 1978. During this time, he had studied under some of the world’s finest master percussion crafters. Only when he felt he was ready, he made the decision to set up Kirmizigul Darbukas in 1996.
Having proved himself with producing premium darbukas, Halil then bought the Agean brand and registered it under Kırmızıgül Company in 2007.
