  • Yes indeed. This is a 23”!  I’ve never even seen a 23” in this series before - hell I’ve only seen a few 23s” in life! 

  • To have a cymbal Series named after "New Orleans" is quite a bold statement. But, I have to give it to Bosphorus. This unique 23” 2320 gram beauty is indeed a fantastic tribute to the city's illustrious musical history. 

  • As you can see, this hand-hammered beauty is partially lathed with alternating gold and brown ribbons - similar to an Istanbul Agop Special Edition Ride, that's the vibe. 

  • What I love about this particular 23” is that its defining characteristics are LIGHT, AIRY and yet also CONTROLLED. 

  • You don't normally see such a paper-thin cymbal have a decent stick attack and still remain controlled and not wash out. But that is the brilliance of this particular Bosphorus.

  • Beautiful rounded over bell makes it crashable. Overall it has a slightly focused vibe while the hand-hammering and partial lathing keeps it organic and a bit complex.

  • At only 2320 grams, this thing opens up even with the light stroke of a mallet. Roars when you really crash upon it!

  • Perfect for quiet to medium loud settings. 

  • IMMACULATE CONDITION. A unique cymbal that sounds incredible too!
