A ride with warmth, great stick definition, and extreme funk - like the artist who helped design it.
The Stanton Moore Series wide ride cymbal has great warmth, but plenty of stick definition. It is masculine, yet well balanced. The body does not wash out the distinct dry ping so the two sounds remain through most volumes.
Bosphorus worked for two years with Stanton on the development of his signature series cymbals. The results capture the funky, earthy quality of Stanton's trademark sound. The tops are traditionally lathed with warm tonal grooves, while the bottoms are lathed with the distinctive wider ridges associated with the Bosphorus New Orleans series. The sound is 100% Stanton—raw, and aggressive, but always musical and extremely funky. Together these cymbals give Stanton the kind of balanced attack he requires as he takes traditional second line drumming into tomorrow. The Stanton Moore Series wide ride cymbal has great warmth, yet plenty of stick definition.

For many of us, the past years and decades have been filled with drumming on cymbals made by "the big 3". I've played AA, AAX, HH, and HHX mostly and I still own and love all those automated anvil cymbals. I never really considered buying expensive cymbals until I really got a chance to PLAY them and hear the difference. Bosphorus, in my opinion, makes some of the most complex and amazing musical instruments I've ever heard- elevating cymbals from metal accent tools to entire instruments within themselves. I bought a Stanton Moore sig. ride used and it's no exception to this rule. The cymbal is thin, thinner than I would have considered buying, but when played it produces a defined stick sound with a very pleasant low wash. The bell is tiny, but honestly it ROCKS with a serious tone for such a small size. The shoulder produces a warm crash that you can immediatly begin a ride patter on top of, and the decay stays low enough to not interfere with your 8th or 16th notes. You can play it soft or rock it loud. All in all, this is a total artist's cymbal for the drummer that speaks with his or her cymbals and doesn't care what they have to pay to achieve a complex and beautiful tone. If you're a gigging musician that crosses over jazz, fusion, funk, latin, rock, blues, indy, and all other forms of low-medium loud music, you owe it to yourself to give this and other Bosphorus pies a try.
The Wide Ride was the first Bosphorus cymbal I got, and because of it, I own all Bosphorus stuff now. This cymbal has a great sharp attack, with a warm resonance that proves to be versatile; just as good with swing as it is with dirty, New Orleans style funk.
This is a fantastic ride cymbal. Tons of wash if you want it, but still has stick definition. This is not a pingy cymbal--if you're looking for something to use while playing any harder rock but want a more traditional cymbal sound you might try Zildjian K or K Custom heavy or dark rides, or Sabian's HH series.But If you're looking for a ride with lots of character and lots of sounds, please don't pass over this ride. I've played several gigs with it and have rave reviews from the band every time.
