The Bosphorus Master Series Rides are reminiscent of the characteristic sounds of decades past. A smaller bell, slightly bowed profile and paper thin edge provide a woody, "vowel-like" attack sound with plenty of smoky low end wash.
A perfect choice for acoustic jazz applications. Pitch lowers as diameter increases.
Your search for vintage cymbals of previous century has finally ended. Like all Bosphorus Cymbals, Master Series are completely hand made from the casting process through the final hammering, not one step is relegated to a machine. The alloy is from an ancient formula passed down by many generations of cymbal smiths. It gives these instruments a soft, "played-in" feel. Most importantly, the Master Series are much thinner than today's heavier weighted cymbals.
You'll see the characteristic "wobble" made by the cymbal's edge when played. Listen for the woody stick sound and the deep mysterious tone. Feel the dark warm spread underneath.
Unlock your creative potential and explore new levels of expression with genuine hand-crafted musical instruments from Bosphorus.
