Neyzen Sinan Söyler, unlike most instrument makers, has a career in the performance of his instrument for more than 20 years. Neyzen Sinan Söyler, who managed to become one of the few Neyzens with his unique style, which he put forward by blending both Tekke Style and varieties of Classical Turkish Music Style, by taking lessons from well-known Ney masters in Turkey's distinguished institutions, started to make Ney in his home workshop in 2011 affter becoming familiar with the intricacies of Ney making by using different templates and by trial and error during the Ney making process. Neyzen Sinan Söyler, who eventually developed a template of his own, established the full-fledged Sinan Söyler Ney Atelier in Istanbul Başakşehir in 2013, and then moved the atelier to Beşiktaş, where it still serves, in 2019.
In 2021 He passed succesfuly the proficiency exam held by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism and received the approval of the examination committee, and was registered as a Neyzen and Ney Production Master by being given an Artist Identity by the ministry.

Our Beşiktaş, Istanbul Branch - Turkiye
As Neyzen Sinan Söyler and the atelier team, we are people who have given their hearts to the Ney instrument. We do our work with enthusiasm and pleasure. We put forth our best. Although all of us are Neyzen or Neyzen candidates trained by Neyzen Sinan Söyler, we are deeply attached to our master, who taught us both how to play the Ney and how to craft the Ney. We share how our master makes the Ney in our video that we prepared for you at Beşiktaş İstanbul Branch of our atelier.
The tunes pouring from the Neys we opened give us peace and we are very happy to experience this peace with our customers who prefer us to buy their Neys.
Our West Bay, Doha Branch - Qatar
Every reed that enters our workshop passes through the hands of our master Neyzen Sinan Söyler many times, until it becomes a Ney. He travels to different parts of Turkey, where Kargı Reeds (Arundo Donax) are grown, and carefully selects the reeds that we will use to make Ney, one by one, from local collectors. He joins and supervises his team at every step of the process during the production of our neys. Is the reed suitable, is the sharpening correct, is the chord correct, is the workmanship clean... In this way, our Neys produced in both of our workshops are under the guarantee of replacement against any manufacturing defect. Let's watch the work in the West Bay Doha Branch of our workshop.
