- What I love about these Borba cymbals is that they unapologetically know who they are - it's clear they're handmade by one guy with a purpose and vision in mind.
- I have had the pleasure of coming across a few of these Borba cymbals and they absolutely blow me away. Both visually and sonically.
- This Paper Thin STEEP RIDE is ultra complex and has easily bendable edges.
- Look at the pictures. Take a Paiste Traditional….now shave off 300 grams, give it a smaller flattened bell, and CURVE the profile down - steep the bell out of it - almost PANG - like, and then give it a factory dark golden pre-aged patina and add a cup of Vintage Zildjian Istanbul K.
- That’s the vibe of this hand-made beauty!
- The edges wobble with the lightest breeze. It’s extremely responsive at low volumes. Even very low volumes.
- There’s not a big cymbal company out there that makes a beauty like this. It’s on the BILL STEWART Zildjian K Custom DRY COMPLEX RIDE world. That’s where it lives.
- ONLY 1740 grams makes it Paper Thin. And that’s how it plays.
- Very complex. Very broad spread. A hint of dryness in the attack. Exceptionally responsive and crashable.
- An amazing Main Light Ride or the perfect foil to a warm Dark Ride.
- Immaculate condition, an incredible piece.
- Looks part Paiste Traditional part Istanbul K.
