Play One & Believe | Established in 1996 by three master cymbal smiths, Bosphorus Cymbals is a global brand and leading company in the percussion industry.
Each of their beautiful cymbals are 100% hand-crafted using centuries-old traditional Turkish metal-working methods. Described by some as “one of the most inspiring cymbals ever made,” these one-of-a-kind cymbals are well worth the investment.
Bosphorus Cymbals is unique in that they use only traditional Turkish cymbal manufacturing processes. While some companies advertise “hand-hammered” cymbals, which are still in fact mass produced, Bosphorus does not take shortcuts; their master craftsmen handmake every cymbal from start to finish.
The traditional steps they follow include smelting, casting, rolling, pressing the bell, tempering, piercing the bell and cutting round, hard hammering, lathing, fine hammering, and finally shaving the edges of the cymbal.
