  • Here’s a wonderfully Hand Hammered 18” that can do a lot around the kit.  

  • Exceptionally clean Bosphorus Antique Series 18” Medium Thin Crash.  Many people know this series to be the Sultan Series - that’s the vibe. And it’s a Zildjian K killer.  

  •   As you can see, this Medium Thin has an hand hammered unlathed bell feeding into a lathed 2.5" section, into an unlathed 2.5"s, then lathed out the edge.

  •  The result is a cymbal that has all the wonderful light, semi-dry attack of a TURK Ride COMBINED with the warmer glow and wash of a lathed Bosphorus Traditional Series.

  • With a thin weight of 1456 grams, this 18" Bosphorus Antique plays like a great semi-dry, semi-complex sounding Mediun Thin Crash or smaller LIGHT RIDE. 

  • The attack is strong but the decay is a bit more dry and controlled than a fully lathed cymbal.  And that’s the beauty! 

  • Slightly bendable edges give it a great swelling response but it has plenty of tension to be a Light Ride.  

  • Truly Hand Hammered so it has that percolating airy complexity.  

  • Crash. Ride.  Crash/Ride. Remarkably versatile. 

  • No issues.  Very clean.  

  • A steal next to a machine hammered $370 Zildjian K
