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.
Master Vintage Crash
- Feature trashy initial attack, and decays quickly.
- Bolster a complex fundamental note that works well with Master Vintage rides.
"Dark, complex tones. Fine hand-hammered build. Excellent playability. The crash has a trashy initial attack, and decays quickly, with a complex fundamental note that works well with the ride. It doesn't sing the way a bright finish, heavily-lathed crash would, but it serves to punctuate and accent music very well without overstaying its welcome. Its dark and trashy nature would work well in an electronic music setting as well as a more traditional acoustic setting." - 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
"Not too loud, not too soft. Can be used as a crash or lite ride." - Robert V.
"All Bosphorus cymbals are excellent, but Master Vintage cater to my preferred taste in tones the most. The main tonal quality you’ll find in these cymbals is dryness. They have less sustain than the other Bosphorus cymbals, meaning they get out the way incredibly quickly when you play them. They also have amazing stick definition." - Brett Clur
