Bosphorus New Orleans Rides

Available sizes: 20", 21", 22"
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.
Rides (thin) A thin ride that is in between our "Traditional Original" weight and our "Masters" weight. The instrument is fundamentally low in pitch, dry yet open and provides excellent stick articulation. The 21" and 22" exaggerate the trashy undertones of this line. An excellent Ride for jazz, funk, or fusion and appealing to those who have a taste for vintage cymbals.
