I was lucky enough to play a gig in France with Stanton Moore last year, and he raved on and on about Bosphorus. And everything he said rang true about the cymbals. Except for me, they were a bit too classically dry. I think that as a "young" drummer (Just turned 26 and see 11yr olds that can whoop me.) I've become accustomed to kits with A customs etc and the modern K's kinda fulfil my desire for something dry and washy but with a bit of brightness and projection. Def not the same cymbal, but still an interesting sound.
