  • This is a beautiful looking and sounding, raw, heavily Hand Hammered Paper Thin Bosphorus TURK 18” that is in Immaculate Condition! 

  • Look at the craftsmanship on this 18” - it has a slightly different look than most Turks. 

  • Actually, this one looks like a Prototype - it’s lightly LATHED - like an Agop Signature, but I have never seen this style on a TURK before.  They’re usually completely unlathed. 

  • Weighing in at a svelte, PAPER THIN 1140 grams, this Bosphorus plays like a SEMI-DARK, FAIRLY DRY, COMPLEX PAPER Thin Crash. The tone is extremely ORGANIC, a pinch dark, a bit DRY, and Complex---which is not always an easy combination to find. The initial attack on this 18" yields a terrific spread with myriad overtones, HOWEVER, this 18" being a raw style cymbal, those overtones decay quickly leaving a DRY, organic-sounding crash. 

  • And at only 1140 grams, this Bosphorus is EASILY bendable and quick and responsive at lower volumes.

  • Broad spread, slightly DRY, quick decay, extremely organic tone.  Overall controlled.  

  • Perfect for low to medium loud volumes and studio work.

  • And I have not seen another TURK like THIS 18” one!  Lightly lathed!  

  • Immaculate condition.  No issues. Perfect - a beautiful hand-crafted 18”!
