Jazz Master speaks with distinction with bowed profile tapering to paper thin edge. With the right amount of finesse these cymbals can be explosive when needed, are sensitive enough for a jazz trio, but dug in and they can carry a big band through the shout chorus.
Jazz Master Ride
- Delivers rich articulate layers of tone and smooth warm wash layers nicely under crisp stick definition.
"The 21" Jazz Master Ride has a fairly bright-sounding bell that was reminiscent of the tone that bebop innovator Max Roach achieved on many records in the 1950s. Although it's not a dry-toned cymbal, the 21" is very articulate and has a great combination of sparkling stick attack and warm, shimmering wash. This is a timeless, classic-sounding ride cymbal." - Team
"Up to this point in my multi-decade drumming career, I have always held an allegiance to a different major brand of cymbals. Well, after getting the chance to try Hammer out in various situations, I immediately knew I had found a new object
of my desire. After getting to play the whole set of these cymbals and listening back to the multiple live and studio recordings I made with them, the thing that stood out the most was how well they sat in the mix. With their dark low undertones and sufficient definition in the attacks for the band to lock onto, the Hammers proved to be perfectly suited for a diverse range of musical environments." - Matt Kern
"You may have noticed by now that most Bosphorus cymbals are excellent options for jazz drumming. However, when the brand themselves puts the word ‘jazz’ in the name of the line, you’ll know for sure what these cymbals are intended for. I’m putting the Jazz Master Series cymbals here as the best option for jazz. If you’re unsure of what cymbal qualities you need for playing jazz, it’s a safe bet to go with a set of these puppies. They have a beautiful, versatile sound, and they open up quite nicely when you hit them aggressively. They’re perfect for playing softly and then letting loose when a jazz song builds to its climax." - Brett Clur
