  • Here's a glorious, hard to find Bosphorus SEMI-DRY, Dark and MELLOW 20” China that has a light complexity to it. 

  • Gorgeous Pre-aged brushed finish that dries out the attack just a bit.   

  • It’s a cousin to the Turk Series but it’s thinner and more refined and smooth sounding. 
  • This beauty plays like a Hand Hammered Zildjian China Swish from the days of yore. None of this 18” A Custom China stuff. This thing sounds 70 years old. 

  • Weighing in at a VERY THIN 1480 grams, this hard to find 20” is exceptionally responsive and comes to life with even the slightest swipe.

  • A generous 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. Great for the Mel Lewis thing. 

  • Very dark, mellow and organic looking and sounding. 

  • In addition to the beautiful look and craftsmanship, the standout feature of this particular Black Pearl is that it’s like a China Low - it’s mellower and although complex, has a measure of control on there too. 

  • Goes from very low volumes to medium loud with ease. A perfect candidate for rivets too. 

  • Immaculate condition. No issues. 

  • Why pay $410 for a humdrum-ass big box store China that you can’t even hear before you buy??’

  • This is Hand Hammered 20” looks great. Sounds amazing. 

  • This is one of Bosphorus nicest, most refined series. And it shows.
