Posted for your immense pleasure is this absolutely STUNNING, HAND HAMMERED,  UNIQUE BOSPHORUS PROTOTYPE 22" PHILLY RIDE SIZZLE that is in AMAZING Condition! Check out the pictures! There are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, dings on this 22"!! It's VERY CLEAN and has ONLY been played for the sound file.  It has a few fingerprints that are part of the aged finish vibe (like the Avedis Series) 

THIS PROTOTYPE IS THE LIMITED PHILLY RIDE BUT WITH A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT WEIGHT AND CONSTITUTION! 

AND THE STRAIGHT UP ATTACK IS STRONGER! 

And look at the craftsmanship that went into this thing. Everything about this cymbal is beautiful! Total Vintage Vibe!! This 22" is a great looking and sounding cymbal.

This gorgeous 22" 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 MEDIUM 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 2510 grams - which is perfectly BALANCED on this 22" - great attack, great wash. 

This 22" provides the perfect elixer of fairly DARK and subtle Hand Hammered complex overtones combined with a solid 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 Medium Light Dark Ride, that's remarkably slightly dry.

The combination of a Medium THIN cymbal with a vintage vibe patina creates a drier stick attack with a breathy complex wash - which is pretty damn hard to do!  Add the afterglow of 3 factory rivets and you have an incredible, unique 22"! 

Overall very responsive, and crashable! Perfect for crash - accents. 

Obviously this ULTRA RARE Bosphorus 22" Prototype PHILLY RIDE Sizzle 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 IMMACULATE CONDITION!!! AND NO ONE HAS THIS BEAUTY!!  IT'S UNIQUE!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this One-of-a-Kind, Hand Hammered perfectly balanced 2510 gram PROTOTYPE Bosphorus 22" PHILLY RIDE Sizzle!

And hang onto it. Like Philly Joe's performances, this beautiful 22" will age gracefully.
