Bosphorus 22" Master Vintage Series Ride Cymbal - Product Information
The search for vintage cymbals has finally ended. Originally developed by jazz great Neal Smith, the Master Series cymbals are completely hand made. Like all Bosphorus Cymbals, from the casting process through the final hammering, not one hammer mark is made by a machine. The alloy is from an ancient formula passed down by first generation cymbal smiths. It gives these instruments a soft, "played-in" feel. Finally, these cymbals are much thinner than today's heavier weighted cymbals. Simply put, today's medium weight is much heavier than a medium weight cymbal in 1950. Another testimony to their weight is the characteristic "ripple" made by the cymbal's edge when played.
