Bosphorus New Orleans Cymbals are the perfect jazz or big band cymbals. With a retro New Orleans sound to them they work great for any jazz, funk, blues or even rock project. Check em out.
The Bosphorus New Orleans Ride is has a wonderful dry stick definition that's ideal for a diverse set of styles. These are thin rides that are in-between their "Traditional Original" weight and "Masters" weight. The cymbal is basically lower in pitch, dry however open and gives ideal stick articulation. The 21" and 22" exaggerate the trashy undertones of this line.
An outstanding Ride for jazz, funk, or fusion and attractive to those who have a preference for vintage cymbals.
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.
