The Bosphorus Gold Series 18" Fast Crash is the cymbal that is set to revolutionize the rock community. Hand-Crafted in the Bosphorus tradition, these crashes are hand-polished to a shimmering gold luster to increase the attack and projection. A quick, bright, crash with fast attack and medium decay.
The larger sizes can be used as a Crash/Ride in some situations. These crashes require little effort to "work" and can significantly decrease the fatigue caused by playing machined cymbals. Full bodied with even pitch this cymbal responds nicely when played lightly or forcefully. A good all- around crash.
Handmade cymbals with a modern sound...bright, crisp and clean without sounding harsh or brittle.
The Gold series fuses the "old world" warmth of handmade cymbals with the cutting power, projection, and durability desired by drummers playing in contemporary settings. Each Gold Series cymbal is hand hammered, then buffed to a brilliant finish. The weights of the Gold Series rides offer maximum response with plenty of projection. The crashes are explosive and cutting, yet warm. The hats offer a clear powerful chick sound with a bright splash. The Gold Series is a must for any musical situation where powerful focused cymbals are required.
