BOSPHORUS CYMBALS - ARE "REAL" VINTAGE!

Introducing Bosphorus Cymbals, Hundreds of years ago the hand making of cymbals began in Bosphorus by local artisans. Now made in Istanbul Turkey , they keep the hand made tradition alive to this day; Bosphorus take no shortcuts, especially in the hand-hammering process. This is a critical step and is absolutely necessary to create the fine nuances and depth of expression that your music demands.

The crew at Bosphorus believe hand-hammering means simply that:
a man striking a cymbal with a hammer held in his hand. The artisan hears the sounds of the hammer blows as he feels the cymbal in his other hand, bringing to fore years of experience and mastery. That's the only way they make each and every cymbal bearing the Bosphorus logo.

Sensing the importance of this process, some companies market their cymbals as hand-made. But are they really? Guiding a pneumatic hammer is not hand-hammering. Adding a few hammer marks by hand after completing the pneumatic process isn't hand hammering.
At Bosphorus, one man with one hammer makes cymbals one at a time.
They call this an essential human dimension the “Soul of the Cymbal”.

Once you hear the difference, you won't settle for
anything less - Play one and believe!

The Four Step Process of Bosphorus Cymbal Making

Copper and tin are smelted
under intense heat & pressure.

Molten cymbal bronze being poured
into moulds that look like tiny skillets.



The hammering room. Three men work the cymbals with nothing more than a hammer. Once that hammer starts moving the magic happens.


A cymbal being hand-turned on an
(original cold-war era) Steel lathe. The threads of bronze fly from the cymbal above the craftsman's hand which then gets stripped away to make the
perfect Bosphorus Cymbal.
