  • To have a cymbal Series named “Jazz Master” is quite a bold statement. But, I have to give it to Bosphorus, this 22" 2220 gram beauty is indeed a fantastic Paper Thin, light, and airy handcrafted beauty! Reminiscent of some of the 1940s and 50s Hand Hammered Zildjians but with a bit more breathiness. 

  • As you can see, this hand-hammered 22” 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 22" 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 2220 grams, this 22” is definitely crashable. It plays like a Thin to Paper Thin 22”. 

  • Light. Airy. Complex with a percolating warmth and lightness. 

  • 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.  Only played for the video.  
  • A hard cymbal to actually find in the wild! Great shape!!
