All neys are hand picked and oiled every month for best sound. The neys are made by Husseyin, who lives near the Syrian border. Husseyin harvests the canes himself to make sure only the highest grade canes are used. The canes are ‘Hatai’ near the border with Syria, an area that is world famous for it’s reed’s quality. Every ney is checked and tested by a neyzen (professional ney player) for full playability in both high and low registers.
Thanks to his perfect location, Husseyin, the owner of ‘Ney Adana’, is able to collect himself the canes to create these magnificent instruments. It all begin with choosing the good cane, with the right proportions, age, color and more. It is said that only 1 out of 1,000 canes is good for Turkish ney.
