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 China
- Is riveted.
- Offers cutting with thin, trashy, dark sounds.
- Is rideable.
"The 20" Jazz Master China is medium weight and works great as an alternate ride, especially during sections when needed to inject a bit of attitude into the groove, or as an explosive crash cymbal. You can throw in a strong accent at the end of a fill or hit it with a glancing blow to introduce a dark, sizzling texture. The bell of the china produces a complex, dry sound that contrasted nicely with the cleaner voices of the other cymbals." - Team
"I used this 20-inch china for a recording session, and it sounded fantastic in the final mix. The china opens and delays quickly. Most important with any great china is that it never gets to be ?too much." I have owned different chinas from many manufacturers, and the common thread is that you have to be very careful when playing them so they don't overpower the music, which makes them difficult to navigate in a musical setting. With the Bosphorus chinas, they spoke clearly at low volumes with plenty of character and never overpowered the band at higher stick velocities." - 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
