  • 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 400 grams, give it a smaller flattened bell, and CURVE the profile down - steep the hell 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.
