Bosphorus New Orleans Crashes

Available sizes: 15", 16", 17", 18"
A line of cymbals that is truly in a class by themselves. Evoking the spirit of the crescent city, this line of cymbals is at home behind a jazz kit or it can take the pounding of a blues or funk gig. The cymbal is hammered in the "Turk" tradition and then lathed in a continuous spiral from bell to outer edge. This method produces a dry yet open sound with smoky lows, clear mids, and a taste of high notes. It also produces a warm, trashy overtone that is sure to delight the ears.
Thin: A thin, immediate crash which explodes quickly and has moderate sustain. The body is full and warm with equal balances of high and low frequencies. As with all the New Orleans line, the instrument has trashy undertones yes is still well behaved in a jazz playing situation. An excellent jazz, funk, and fusion crash.
