  • Here's a Unique PRE AGED Bosphorus PHILLY Prototype EFFECTS China in perfect condition. 

  • Gorgeous Philly style BLUE  Pre-Aged finish that dries out the attack just a bit and gives it an incisive, aggressive punch - rife with holes like the Zildjian Special Dry Effects China - but this BLUE gem is actually Hand Hammered. 
  • This beauty plays like a Vintage Zildjian China Swish from the days of yore. None of this 18” A Custom China stuff. This Effects China is complex and biting - compliments of the factory holes. 

  • Weighing in at a VERY THIN 1044 grams, this rare-sized 18” is exceptionally responsive and comes to life with even the slightest swipe.

  • A generous 2.5” lip beckons for your strike.

  • Very PANG-like rounded-over bell and the profile gives it a wonderful Old World complex and smoky tone. 

  • When you ride on it delivers a semi-dry stick attack with a hint of trashiness. 

  • In addition to the beautiful look and craftsmanship, the standout feature of this particular 18” is that it has a particular incisive, biting attack.  

  • The gorgeous, BLUE factory-aged finish makes this a standout cymbal visually as well as sonically.

  • Immaculate condition. No issues. 

  • Why pay $380 for a humdrum-ass big box store China. 

  • This is a rare 18” Effects China looks great. Sounds amazing. Perfect. 

  • And you can’t find this Prototype out there.
