Masters Vintage is boldly noted by Bosphorus as the embodiment of their philosophy and represents their absolute finest work. These cymbals carry the distinctive colors of the wood-oven. Their thin, hand hammered bell and profile produce a soft, "played-in" feel. These cymbals are perfect for recreating the sound and atmosphere found on jazz, blues, and big band stages and recordings.

Provides pronounced, warm and silvery chick when closed.
Includes black canvas bag with yellow Bosphorus logo print.
Holds up to 9 pairs of drumsticks.
Exterior pocket for accessories.
"Dark, complex tones. Fine hand-hammered build. Excellent playability. Often unlathed hats can struggle to cut through, but wash with a metallic rasp that belies their weight. Closed sticking is clear and articulated brightly, without being too severe, and half-open they fall easily into a lazy wash that can be controlled easily. Pedalled, the 'chick' is pronounced - again, not always a given with 'Turk'-style hi-hats - and struck and then closed, the 'scoop' sound cuts through, making disco-eighths a real possibility." - Jake Stacey
"A true hand forged instrument of uncompromising quality beauty and aural nuance. These rare treasures offer up a dark, dry fundamental tone, precise articulation, and an organic earthy response." - Dennis
"4 years using them, the best sound, the best texture, the best colors!" - Orestes Gomez
