Bosphorus Traditional 18" Thin Crash

Combo savings in shopping cart with multiple cymbals.
Traditional's intricate style of over hammering imparts a unique temper and relaxation for a warm, vowel-like attack, with a relatively deep pitch and rich, complex wash of controlled overtones. They are diverse enough to be used in delicate acoustic situations and aggressive enough to be played in arena rock concerts.
"You can use this 18" as a crash cymbal as well as a ride cymbal. When crashed, it produces a spectrum out to 10 kHz, peaking at 4 kHz, and then slowly declines to about 45 kHz. The crash peaks at 0.23 seconds. When used as a ride, the ping has a slightly flatter response, and all the way out to 15 kHz before it declines sharply. So, the ping of the ride has higher frequencies initially than the crash. I suspect this is because I used the wooden side of the stick to crash it, but the nylon tip to ride it. The ride has a shimmering wash that is quite musical and nearly as loud as the ping. This is one of the most beautiful sounding cymbals I have yet heard." - Team
