I'm getting deep into Bosphorus. Where is this on the thin - medium - heavy scale.

I have a bunch of old cymbals: Alejian, Zenjian, Zilco...

How about a 1930's Slingerland cloud badge 12 x 16 3 ply mahogany parade snare?

Its been suggested by DFO members that the Bosphorus cymbal is an Argentum, but I can’t find a specific marking. It is in the medium thickness range. Thicker than my Byzance Sand thin crash.
I’d like to see the snare and any thin, quick decay cymbals you have. Thanks!

After some thought, a medium won't fit in with what I'm putting together. I saw a preorder for a 17" Argentum crash and it does look like yours.

Yes. Its definitely a prototype, but appears to have silver content. Thanks.
