Bosphorus Groove cymbals are a traditionally lathed and hammered but with a unique sound. Designed to be punchy, warm and big sounding. Great for jazz, rock or any typed of music.
Bosphorus Cymbals was founded in 1996 by three-master cymbal smiths, Hasan Seker, Ibrahim Yakici and Hasan Ozdemir. They're labeled Masters because they're the most skilled cymbal smiths in Turkey that are still working actively.
The creators of Bosphorus were 3 close friends that were raised in the same community. Their common bond was being taken to work in a community cymbal workshop. Their modest beginnings involved cleaning the workshop and other menial tasks, but eventually they were schooled in the art of producing cymbals. During the early ages of their youth they became cymbal smiths. Their instructors were the masters who produced the famous cymbals of 60’s and 70’s.
After 16 years at the same workshop the friends went off independently and founded their own company. Today they preserve close relations with their original employers. The Masters still appreciate their teachers to this day.
