  • Well, this just makes me happy! 

  • A truly Hand Hammered 26”. 

  • And this can easily be your main ride cymbal. 
  • This is reminiscent of those HUGE Zildjians you would see in the background of a 1940s or 1950s Zildjian ad with Papa Joe Jones.  Just a massive wavy hand-hammered cymbal lying against the wall and you’re like “what the hell is that?!!” 

  • Well, this rare 26” celebrates that era and vibe! 

  • It’s even LOOKS 80 years old with its unlathed, raw heavily Hand Hammered surface. 

  • Ultra Rare HUGE Bosphorus 26” TURK Rideor Crash in Immaculate shape!  

  • Unique. A massive hand constructed instrument. 

  • As you can see, this stunning 26” has a raw bell feeding into a beautifully Hand Hammered massive plain, the last outer half-inch is golden.  

  • The result is a cymbal that has all the wonderful light and complex tone of a truly Hand Hammered cymbal with the focus and drier attack of an unlatched TURK.  

  • With a weight of exactly 3580 grams, this MASSIVE 26” Bosphorus plays like a great, dry semi- complex-sounding Thin to Medium Thin Light Ride or CRASH RIDE. The weight gives it a good attack while the Old-World Turkish craftsmanship lends its telltale complexity to the mix. 

  • Remarkably responsive at low to medium level volumes!   Crash on it and it ROARS like the levee just broke - more than capable in loud to very loud settings. 

  • Organic but still with a glow. Subtle but lively, responsive with a smooth complexity.

  • The 26” size supplies myriad options for drawing tone out of this instrument.  It’s like playing a grand piano. 

  • A gorgeous Main Ride or massive Crash Ride. 

  • MESMERIZING to watch wobble and float about. 

  • This is a unique instrument! It’s a calling card. It can easily be your main ride or roaring crash! Or make it sizzle for that 1940s vibe! 

  • Whatever you decide, it’s an absolute JOY to play and make music with and have fun with.  

  • Nothing like it at all. No issues. Immaculate shape! Gorgeous COPPER HUE.
