BUT UNIQUE MASSIVE, SIXTEEN INCH HAND HAMMERED BOSPHORUS NEW ORLEANS HIHATS THAT ARE IN IMMACULATE CONDITION, AND COME IN THE BAG!!! 

And they cost a HELL of a lot less than 14" K CONS!! 

 

Or hell, even the damn Avedis or regular-ass big box store K Light Hihats!! Those are $550!! 

AND these beauties are actually Hand Hammered! Imagine that!  And they're much more musical than any machine made Zildjians could hope to be! 

This isn't big box store fodder! 

Posted for your immense pleasure is this insanely GORGEOUS sounding pair of IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND, HUMONGOUS BOSPHORUS NEW ORLEANS SERIES 16" HiHats that are in AMAZING Condition. Check out the pictures!  I'm thrilled to report there are 

NO

Nicks, Cracks, Dents, or Dings on these New Orleans  enormous 16"s. They're in Immaculate shape! 

So clean they can easily pass as NEW! I recorded a soundfile on them - that is the ONLY play they have seen!! 

And check out all that lathing! That's a lot of handiwork!!! 

As you would hope, these particular 16s" have a wonderful  complex SIZZLE smokiness to them that conjures up old school Vintage Ks and Dixieland style music.  And when splashed together they have a great parade second-line vibe!

Weighing in at a lovely 1120 grams for the top and 1300 grams for the bottom, these Bosphorus plays like great Thin Semi-DRY Complex Hihats. 

As you can see these cymbals have been slightly lathed...giving them alternating brown/gold rings.  

The tone is the perfect marriage between the Bosphorus Masters Series and the dark and dry unlathed TURK Series. The overall tone is classic Turkish Hand Hammered DARK and wonderfully organic.  Prominent stick attack-compliments of their Turk leanings, and they still has a subtle fairly complex glow of the famous Masters Series-BUT, these hihats are a bit more controlled in overtones. 

 

What's amazing about these Massive 16s" is that they have all the Hand Hammered inimitable DARK, organic tone you would expect from teh famous Bosphorus New Orleans Series, but they're much bigger, deeper, and have a lower, entrancing pitch. You can really DIG into these hihats. 

The 14s" don't even come close. 

The tone is classic Hand Hammered MAGIC and FAT as hell.  Incredible for laying down MASSIVE grooves!! 

 

These massive 16s" are  some of the coolest hihats you'll hear.  Unique headturners! 

This Hand Hammered pair of Bosphorus NEW ORLEANS Hihats are a no brainer for jazz, blues, ballads, dixieland, trio work, swing, and soul. However the fun doesn't stop there. They are wonderful for funk, fusion, pop, country, R&B, indie rock, even mellow rock, and session work--great for close mic recordings. Use it anytime you need a CLASSIC Turkish Hand Hammered Semi-Dry tone that still has some sizzle and complexity.

 

$550 for the big box store humdrum Ks?

 

Why not play something no one else has?! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this pair of actually Hand Hammered, UNIQUE Bosphorus NEW ORLEANS Series 16" Hihats. 

AND HANG ONTO THEM!!!  They're really fun to play and dig in to!
