I have a 22 Bos masters - what's the difference between the regular, which is a great jazz ride, and the one you have, if you know? Also, any trades?

The Jazz has a high profile, and spiral lathed bell top and bottom. This video is a good representation of the cymbal sound. Looking for Paiste Sig or 602.

Oh man, that was a great deal on the 19” Trad crash! I have one marked paper thin and it’s fantastic.
Edit: my paper thin 19 is marked with the exact same weight as this thin!

@JazzDrumGuy from what I understand, the Jazz Master is an extension of the Hammer series, with a few modifications after Jeff Hamilton left. Most notably the lathing on the bell. IMO they are more aggressive and glassy than the Master rides. Extremely nice all purpose jazz rides.

The JazzMaster is a separate series, within the Masters Family (Vintage, Black Pearl, Syncopation, JazzMaster).

No crash available, the 20" is very thin, usually the 1400g range and considered a CR. The 21", in the 2100 range, 22" 2200-2300g

Those Antique hats are such a great deal, if I wasn’t full up on hats I would grab them for sure.
