20th Anniversary sits somewhere between Master and Master Vintage. They are traditionally lathed, but also treated with a special dark patina process to look decades old.
20th Anniversary Ride
Smaller rides with slightly cleaner stick attack, more focused overtones, even and balanced sustain.
Larger rides with tendency to get washier, provide lusciously dark and warm tones.
A great option when you need rich, smooth and warm sounds that speak quick and easy but don’t get overly loud.
Excellent choice for most recording situations, also works well with lower-volume jazz to moderate-volume club gigs.
Includes black canvas bag with yellow Bosphorus logo print.
Holds up to 24" cymbals.
With shoulder strap with quick-release metal clips and small handles.
No cymbal dividers in the main compartment.
Features a pocket on the back side for sticks.
"The 22" ride has a tendency to get washier than the 20", especially when played at faster tempos and at higher volumes. The 22" wasn't ideal for the aforementioned club gigs, which demanded a lot of stylistic and dynamic versatility. But for lighter contexts, like acoustic jazz and more subtle recording applications, it provided a lusciously dark and warm tone that blended well with the kit. The bell sound is complex and integrated, so striking it activates a fair amount
of wash. The 22" ride also crashes very well, producing a huge,
dramatic push when hit on the edge with the shoulder of the stick." - Michael Dawson
"20th Anniversary 22" ride has a rich tone that is warm-ish but also has some nice chime. Crashing the edge of the cymbal you can get a great wash and the bell is super versatile. Perfect for funk and rock, it cuts through but isnâ€™t offensive or "pingy." Jazz gigs would also be a goer thanks to its rich overtones that sit in the mix without overpowering other instruments." - Shopper
"The cymbal has interesting characteristics. It has both a low and high pitch characteristic, and is splashy as well. It's a little heavier than what I usually like. I have a 20" "A" from the 60's and this cymbal sounds similar but a little darker. Very unique. I think it's more a jazz cymbal and less a hard rock sound." - Peter A.
