  • Extremely rare 23” right here! I’ve never even seen another one. And this is the only one I have. 
  • This is a gorgeous Paper-y 23” that has a very light, golden shimmer. And this is by far one of the THINNEST in this series I’ve ever seen.

  • Don't just guess. Have a listen so you can buy with confidence!

  • Yes.  A 23”! 
  • To have a cymbal Series named “Jazz Master” is quite a bold statement. But, I have to give it to Bosphorus, this 23” 2330 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 and a golden shimmer that emanates. 

  • As you can see, this hand-hammered 23” 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 23” 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 only 2330 grams, this thing is definitely crashable.  It’s paper thin - 2330 would be pretty thin for a 20”.  This is a 23”. It excites with the lightest swipe.  

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

  • 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 Condition! No issues. 

  • A hard cymbal to actually find - especially where you can hear it! There’s not much out there that captures a papery whispiness like this! 

  • A gorgeous 23”.
