  • Here’s a truly Paper Thin Crash or smaller Light Ride.  It’s only 1178 grams and it bends with the utmost of ease.

  • Bosphorus 18” New Orleans Crash in Immaculate Condition.

  • This particular beauty combines the organic, slightly complex tone of a wide lathed Hand Hammered Crash with a surprising shimmer on top.

  • Have a listen! Papery Fast Crash that has a quick and beautiful decay.

  • Here’s how Bosphorus describes this 18”:
    “Captures the pure raw sound of historic New Orleans. Hand hammered and completed, top and bottom, with a continuous spiral from center to edge. This pronounced wide lathing technique results in a cymbal that produces focused woody ride sounds and quick, dry crashes. A must-have cymbal for the studio musician."

  • And that is true!  However this particular Paper Thin has a light complex shimmer to it.

  • A very thin 1178 grams.

  • The tone is the perfect marriage between the Bosphorus Masters Series and the dark and dry unlathed TURK Series. The overall tone is classic Turkish Hand Hammered DARK and wonderfully organic. Wonderfully warm wash with a prominent stick attack-compliments of its Turk leanings, and it still has a subtle glow of the famous Masters Series-BUT, this cymbal is more controlled BOTH in overtones and sustain.

  • A stunning Fast Crash or very Light Ride.

  • Perfect for very low to medium loud settings.

  • Immaculate. A K killer. And much less as well.
