Bosphorus Antique Hi-Hats

Sizes: 12", 13", 14", 15"
The Antique Series marries the two lathing patterns found on the Traditional Series and the Turk Series to provide the performer with the brilliance of a classic, lathed cymbal and the dryness of a raw, unlathed cymbal. The top side of the cymbal features an unlathed bell and a narrow strip of unlathed cymbal approximately half way between the bell and the edge. The bottom side of the cymbal is completely lathed. The rides express themselves with strong definition and ample but controlled overtones. The partial lathing the crashes a slightly mellowed tone with quick decay. Adventurous best describes the overall character of this series. Artists willing to experiment and take chances will love the many textures available from theses cymbals.
Regular Hi-Hat (thin) Tight and dry when played with the foot, dark and earthy when played half open. The stick sound is warm and defined responding to the most sensitive touch. A great choice for studio work and live acoustic applications.
Light Hi-Hat (med. thin) Full-bodied and strong, these cymbals are slightly heavier than the regular hi hat series. Equally effective in soft and loud volume situations, the closed sound is very focused and penetrating while the half open sound is musical and cutting. A bright, clean, versatile pair of hi hats.
Medium Hi-Hat (med.) A bright, pronounced pair of cymbals slightly higher in pitch than the regular hi hat. The chick sound is solid and penetrating while the half open sound produces a sheet of silvery wash. Perfect for loud situations where definition is not sacrificed for power.
