Posted for your immense pleasure is this absolutely STUNNING, HAND HAMMERED,  UNIQUE BOSPHORUS PROTOTYPE 21" PHILLY RIDE is AMAZING Condition! Check out the pictures! There are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, dings on this 21"!! It's VERY CLEAN.  It has a few fingerprints that are part of the aged finish vibe (like the Avedis Series) 

In fact this Bosphorus could pass for BRAND NEW!!! 

THIS PROTOTYPE IS THE LIMITED PHILLY RIDE BUT WITH A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FACTORY FINISH!! IT ALSO IN A PINCH THINNER THAN THE PHILLY RIDES I'VE ENCOUNTERED! 

And look at the craftsmanship that went into this thing. Everything about this cymbal is beautiful! Total Vintage Vibe!! This 21" is a great looking and sounding cymbal.

This gorgeous 21" Prototype is the cream of the crop.  It was designed to commemorate the style of "Philly" Joe Jones and the famous Vintage Zildjian Istanbul Ks from the golden era of Philly Joe Jones!

This beautifully crafted, HAND HAMMERED Bosphorus plays like a LIGHT Thin Complex Ride. Gorgeous overtones on this beauty percolate off the cymbal, but it still has a controlled and played-in mellowness to it.

The weight is 1766 grams - which is REALLY damn this for a 21"!! 

This 21" provides the perfect elixer of fairly DARK and subtle Hand Hammered complex overtones combined with a mellow stick attack that floats above the that Old World wash.  This cymbal is exceptionally classy sounding with a gorgeous, woody stick attack followed by a killer organic,  smokey VINTAGE vibe wash.  As you can see it has been pre-patina'd, so it looks like a Vintage Istanbul K of yore.

An excellent example of that inimitable Old World fairly complex, organic, hand-hammered Turkish magic.

A great sounding Light Dark Ride, that's remarkably slightly dry.

The combination of a THIN cymbal with a vintage vibe patina creates a drier stick attack with a breathy complex wash - which is pretty damn hard to do!

And hell yes, at ONLY 1766 grams, this RARE 21" is definitely crashable!! EASILY BENDABLE AND VERY CRASHABLE! 

Obviously this ULTRA RARE Bosphorus 21" Prototype PHILLY RIDE is a no brainer for jazz, blues, ballads, trio work, folk, and soul. However the fun doesn't stop there. Its smooth, luscious and organic vibe is perfect for funk, fusion, country, rockabilly, mellow pop and rock and ANYTIME you need a great, dark, mellow, old school, vintage Turkish Hand Hammered tone.

As versatile as its namesake!!!!

THIS ONE IS IN AMAZING CONDITION!!! AND NO ONE HAS THIS BEAUTY!!  IT'S UNIQUE!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this One-of-a-Kind, Hand Hammered ONLY 1766 gram PROTOTYPE Bosphorus 21" PHILLY RIDE!

And hang onto it. Like Philly Joe's performances, this beautiful 21" will age gracefully.
