^ Very nice!
I purchased these hats this weekend for a good deal on feebay. They are 14" Turk Series Dark hats. They ship out today, very excited to get them!
I really love Bosphorus cymbals. There's really not much else out there that even compares.
A little more Turkish eye candy, just purchased this 16" Turk Series "Paper Thin" Crash 900grams.
I'm really impressed with my new Turk series hats, amazing chick, dark raw open hat sound, nice tight controlled sound, just excellent! Excited to pair them up with the new Turk crash!
Again, very nice! Bosphorus are my favourite cymbal company after Paiste
Another nice pick up Gretsch. I'm pretty sure I had that one on my Ebay watch list.
I have never heard these in person. But the guy that is president of the company is on my FaceBook friend's list.
Looking for comments:
I have the opportunity to pick up a Bosphorus Master Series 21" Ride Cymbal
You really don't see them around here much. What would you guys feel is a good price for a used one and what do you thing of them?
I picked up a 20" Masters ride a few months ago. I paid $200 for it in excellent condition.
Awesome cymbal, I would definitely jump on it.
The one that I am looking at has holes for rivets but no rivets in it currently...
I was curious f it came that way or if the previous owner put them in (it is on consignment at a store)
It could be either way.
I wouldn't be deterred from buying it because it has rivet holes in it. It's almost better because then you have the option of easily trying out some rivets in it.
Thanks for the input...I think that I will go for it.
Hopefully I will get the cymbal by the end of the week. I looked at rivets online today...most of the online stores charge $25 to ship the darn things...ridiculous. A local music shop chages 50 cents a piece...I think I will pick some up after my cymbal arrives...
drummer_chick, you will love that cymbal. Having the rivet option will add to the versitility, add a few as you go to see the response. I have a 20" Turk and a 21" Masters Vintage. I use a small chain hanging from the mount to pick up sizzle for some Jazz groves.
I am jealous of Gretsch, that crash he found is what I am looking for next.
Any man who may be asked in this century, what he did to make his life worthwhile...
Can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction, "I served in the United States Navy".

Bosphorus & Zildjian Cymbals
Check out cymbalsonly.com for rivets and awesome cymbals. They mailed me 8 Bosphorus rivets for $5.
My Bosphorous 21" Master Ride arrived yesterday. WOW is it ever thin..I like the sound a lot. I have a hard time describing cymbal sounds. I just know what I like. Looking forward to getting the rivets into it to see what is sounds like with them (they are on order)
I now have 3 ride cymbals....a 22" zildjian from the 70's that I got with my kit...very heavy thick rock ride can cut through the loudest electric guitars...(it is not currently on my kit...too loud for playing at home)
Zildjian K Constantinople 20" high bell thin that can play everything and now this bosphorus...
I think that I am set for a while...
Very cool Chick, congrats! Lets see some pics!
Nice selection of rides you have there!
Once you go Bosphorus, you never go back though...
