As a music lover, you might have come across Turkish Mey instruments. These short oboes with unique, mournful sounds are an essential part of Turkish folk music played in ensembles across the country. At Boma Music, we take great pride in providing a wide variety of Meys in different sizes, hand-made from the finest hard woods, with plum wood being the preferred choice.
The Mey instrument has three parts: the body, the reed, and the grip. Our Meys are adjusted to achieve the perfect pitch by pushing the grip up and down on the reed. With a pitch range of one octave, the Mey has seven finger-holes on the top and one thumb-hole on the bottom. These features make it a versatile instrument that can be used as a solo instrument or as part of an ensemble, providing a rich and haunting accompaniment to other instruments.
Historians believe that the Mey is even older than the Zurna and that its ancestors include the Monaulos, which was widely used in ancient times, and the Balaban in Azerbaijan. At Boma Music, we have a deep appreciation for the Mey’s rich history and cultural significance. We offer a wide range of Meys to suit every taste and budget, all available for purchase through our online store.
