YES, YOU READ THE TITLE CORRECTLY!! THIS IS A TWENTY-EIGHT-INCH RIDE!!!!  THAT'S A 2 AND AN 8!  28" FREAKIN' INCHES!!!  HOLY CRAP!

THIS IS THE ONLY 28" BOSPHORUS I'VE EVER SEEN!! 

SURE YOU COULD GET A NON-HAND HAMMERED K CONSTANTINOPLE 22" THAT'S MASQUERADING AS A HAND MADE HAND HAMMERED CYMBAL FOR $560!!!

BUT, THERE'S NO WAY IT WILL SOUND THIS GOOD OR BE THIS BENDABLE!!! Not even close!

AND IT'LL BE HALF A FOOT SMALLER!!

This beauty is beautifully RAW and unlathed (except for a 1/4" on the edge)! And this beauty is a MINI BELL giving it a terrific smooth and controlled tone, which is awesome on a 28"! 

This Bosphorus bends with EASE!! Just a tap with your finger sets it off a rumbling. You can even use this cymbal with hand percussion it's so responsive! The edges on this particular Bosphorus Masters wobble with ease.

Posted for your immense pleasure is this GIANT Handmade  and completely Hand Hammered Bosphorus Masters Vintage Series 28" Ride that is in PERFECT Condition. Check out the pictures! I am happy to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this Hand Hammered Queen. It's in GREAT SHAPE!  As you can see it's VERY CLEAN!!!  IT LOOKS BRAND NEW!! 

Here's what Bosphorus says about the Masters Vintage Series:

"The Master Vintage Series is the embodiment of our philosophy and represents our absolute finest work. A true hand forged instrument of uncompromising quality, beauty and aural nuance. These rare treasures offer up a dark, dry fundamental tone, precise articulation, and an organic earthy response."

And that is accurate!!  EXCEPT THIS ONE IS An ULTRA RARE 28'!!!!

And this particular beauty BENDS and is SOFT!! When played the edges wobble all over the place!!

As advertised, Weighing in at a PAPERTHIN 3488 grams, this Bosphorus Masters Vintage plays like a DARK AND DRY THIN Crash or Dry Light Ride. The tone is extremely ORGANIC, dark, DRY and slightly-complex---which is not always an easy combination to find. The initial attack on this 28" yields a terrific spread with myriad overtones, HOWEVER, those overtones decay quickly leaving a DRY, organic sounding Thin Ride. And at only 3488 grams, this 28" is easily bendable and quick and responsive at lower volumes.When you ride on this beauty it yields a great, soft and subtle dry stick attack that is followed by a very controlled RUMBLE wash. The edges blur all over the place when struck.

And again, this rare 28" has a small bell for a more controlled tone. 

DARK, DRY, quick decay (for a massive 28"), extremely organic tone, controlled.  And at 3488 grams this particular 28" is exceptionally RESPONSIVE! I mean, that's pretty damn thin for a 28"!  I mean, it's not like there are a lot of points of reference to compare this 28" to, 28"s aren't just floating around out there. 

And of course at this delectable weight, this unlathed 28" IS CRASHABLE! The Masters Vintage Series is some of Bosphorus' THINNEST offerings. And this beauty is a prime example of their hard work and dedication to the craft.

Crash. Light Ride. Crash Ride. Gong. This is a versatile 28".

Obviously this 3488 gram PAPERTHIN Bosphorus 28" Masters Vintage Ride is a no brainer for jazz, blues, trio work, and soul. However the fun doesn't stop there. Its organic tone makes it perfect for funk, fusion, country, mellow pop, rock and ANYTIME you need a great, complex and DRY Turkish Hand Hammered 28" THIN Crash or Left Side Light Ride with a quick decay.  

This one is in AMAZING Condition!!! CLEAN! And it's ULTRA RARE! I've never seen another!

Why the hell spend $560 on a machine made 22" when you can have this 28" that's actually HAND HAMMERED - and NO Zildjian 22" is gonna' wobble like this beauty!  AND NO ZILDJIAN IS GOING TO BE 28"!!!!

So do yourself a favor and grab this Handmade and Hand Hammered 3488 gram  unlathed Bosphorus Masters Vintage Series 28" Ride. And hang onto it...

IT'S A RARE BEAUTY!!!
