  • 1250 grams!  And this is a 20”!  That weight would be thin on an 18”. This is an unbelievably papery thin Ride that crashes with the utmost of ease.  The edges wobble and bend like a manta ray. 
  • To have a cymbal Series named “Jazz Master” is quite a bold statement. But, I have to give it to Bosphorus, this 20” 1250 gram beauty is indeed a great Paper Thin, light, and airy handcrafted beauty! Reminiscent of some of the 1940s and 50s Hand Hammered Zildjians but with a bit more breathiness and you don’t find 20s” around these days at THIS weight. 

  • As you can see, this hand-hammered 20” is fully lathed with thin to wide gold ribbons on the surface while the bell is wide-lathed like a Bosphorus New Orleans Ride. 

  • What I love about this particular 20” is that its defining characteristics are LIGHT, AIRY, complex, and yet they stick attack has a pinch of control.  

  • Overall very complex-sounding but the golden stick attack resides above the wash. It’s not dry but for a paper-thin complex cymbal, it delivers a great stick attack. 

  • At only 1250 grams, this thing is definitely crashable. It could live its whole life as a crash! 

  • Light. Airy. Complex with a percolating warmth. 

  • Incredibly responsive. Perfect for very low to medium volumes. 

  • Harkens back to the complex Zildjians of the 1950s - that’s the vibe, but it has a bit more liveliness to it. 

  • Immaculate condition.  No issues. 

  • A hard cymbal to actually find in the wild! 

  • One of the thinnest 20” cymbals you will ever come across! A steal at this price!
