Precise articulation and an organic earthy response.
The Bosphorus Master Vintage Series Ride Cymbal is a true hand forged cymbal of uncompromising quality, beauty and aural nuance. This Bosphorus ride cymbal offers dark, dry fundamental, with precise articulation and an organic earthy response. The cymbal is completely handmade from the casting process through the final hammering (not one hammer mark is made by a machine). The cymbal's alloy is from an ancient formula passed down by first generation cymbal smiths. You get a soft, "played-in" feel. Finally, the Bosphorus Master Vintage Ride is much thinner than today's heavier weighted cymbals. Simply put, today's medium weight is much heavier than a medium weight cymbal in 1950. Another testimony to their weight is the characteristic ripple made by the Bosphorus Master Vintage Series Ride Cymbal's edge when played.
- Completely handmade and hand-hammered

I've played this cymbal many times, enough to know just how amazing it is. This ride is the real thing. The stick response is unparalleled, the pingy definition and earthy wash are almost too perfect to be real, and the famous dark bosphorus overtones are all there. I wish i had the money for this baby, and if you do, don't think twice about buying it.
