Who is still using Bosphorus on your Jazz gigs...even though you can afford anything?

I've used them a lot over ~ the last 15 years; a 22" jazz Turk, 13" Turk hihats, an Antique, and a few different Masters. The only ones I still have are the hihats, which record really nice. A few of them were weird, most of them were lovely. My thing with them is that I felt like they didn't project, and didn't balance well with the drums. The sound of the drums beat them up a little bit. The soft/glassy thing that makes them great to record with wasn't working for me in normal playing.

I have an 18" Antique (quick crash and nice for piano solos) and an 18" Syncopation. The Syncopation series is the most interesting IMO, most others are a bit too clean for me.

They're "performance" cymbals; you go in; do the gig; leave

leave to others to write the reviews.

I've been using the same paper thin 16" for almost 20 years, got spider cracks and bent like an old felt hat, perfect cymbal.
