I picked up the Beech, Bubinga and the Birch snares when the DC snares were on sale. Kept the beech and the birch. I struggled to like the sound of the bubinga. It was a pretty drum, but if the sound isn't there, it just takes up space. Ended up trading it and some other drums for a DW Collectors kit. It was a good trade overall.
I hear you on the bubinga. It took awhile for me to get used to. The overall sound is dark yet cutting, with a different kind of harmonic ring from other woods when the drum's left open. It left a pocket of sound open for the guitars in my band that worked for me. I could actually hear them a little better.

I think the Bosphorus is a paper thin crash. I got one of these on Amazon a while back and a paper thin came in...and it's very thin.

I recently bought a 19” Traditional crash and it was supposed to be a thin but I received a cymbal marked paper thin. Strangely, its weight and feel are more like a regular thin. But I have had a paper thin version that was anemic once before.

I have 19" Traditional Paper Thin on the way. I'm hoping it's thin and a bit anemic for playing in a small room.

I thought the "CP" designation in the cymbal above was for "power crash." I might be misremembering, but I thought paper thin was noted differently.

The C is for crash, the P is for paper thin as far as I have been able to tell. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any of these Bosphorus models designated with the term “power crash” although I admit I don’t pay attention to the Gold series which is supposed to be more rock oriented.

The one I got a few months ago came in as a paper thing. Was hoping for something thicker. This was the listing on amazon when I got it:

Just grabbed the last one (17"). This is the smallest cymbal (other than my splash) that I've gotten in a long time. I've had Istanbul Mehmet Sultan crashes which are the same lathed/unlathed type and even the paper thins seemed a little chunkier. Hopefully this one is super thin and opens up easily. For a buck thirty, I'll roll the dice.
