  • Bosphorus Antique Thin Crash 15"

    Bosphorus Antique Thin Crash 15" - sanjuro's review

    11/30/09

    The banded lathing on this cymbal reminded me of my Istanbuls, so I wanted to try it.  I also am a fan of other Bosporus cymbals and try all of them when I can.  I was not terribly impressed by this, however, and I would not buy one of my own.  For s…

  • Bosphorus New Orleans Ride 20"

    Bosphorus New Orleans Ride 20" - sanjuro's review

    11/30/09

    Because I love so much music from New Orleans, I knew I had to try this ride out.  I saw the hand hammering and dark alloy and was very excited.  This cymbal produces a great vintage sound that is in the New Orleans tradition, versatile and well bala…

  • Bosphorus Master Hi-Hat 14"

    Bosphorus Master Hi-Hat 14" - sanjuro's review

    11/30/09

    These Bosphorus Master Series Hi hats are a good example of the Bosphorus quality.  I first found these because they reminded me of the Istanbul Sultan hats I owned.  They looked similar, and seemed to have similar production processes.  Not surprisi…

    Bosphorus Jadis Ride 21" - " Question éqilibre on JADIS 21"
    translated

    02/13/11

    I play this ride for 6 months, bought second hand after being stuck on to the bag. Previously I was playing a Turkish Shezad 20p, good little cymbal (super bell) but not very flexible (due to its thickness). This JADIS Philippe Lalita in 21 is ver…

    I use this cymbal for 2 years. It is not running, it is still raw on both sides, but it is polished, which gives it a soft touch. It is obviously manufactured by hand in Turkey. The copy I have is an Original Ride 2330g (weight is indicated by the …

    I was looking for material for my drummer, who renews its fleet right now, when I came across this charley. He immediately jumped to the ears (and my companions as well) as being much better than other hi-hats I've tried that day. Crisp and clean …

    Tried extensively in the store and compared to many competitors. The sound is right on the edge. Without power and rather soft on the attack with a medium widened its a little dirty. It is not in the Millnots low end, but it is not worth the go…
