This new 20th Anniversary Series now stands here to complement celebration of our happy moment for the establishment of Bosphorus Factory in 1996. Using 1900’s exact alloy formula like every other famous series of Bosphorus, it adds definitely fresh options to our rich existing sound palette.

It is a comeback of old school sound for those sensitive ears who love & insist on living in vintage, and nostalgic tones of 60’S. The charming look, with its dark greyish color and antique appearance, actually complements the design purpose such that overall it offers to achieve very refined tones by suppressing excessive surface waves and overtones. This yields very clean and focused stick sound, in warm and dark tones from low to medium loud styles, to cater your old-school penchants, from jazz to fusion.

Bosphorus Cymbals was established in 1996 by three master cymbal smiths, Hasan Seker, Ibrahim Yakici and Hasan Ozdemir. They are called Masters because they are the most experienced cymbal smiths in Turkey who are still working actively.


The founders of Bosphorus were three good friends who grew up in the same neighborhood. Their common thread was being sent to work in a neighborhood cymbal workshop. Their humble beginings included cleaning the workshop and other menial tasks, but in time they were trained in the art of making cymbals. In the early ages of their youth they became cymbal smiths. Their teachers were the masters who manufactured the legendary cymbals of 60’s and 70’s.

After 16 years at the same workshop the friends ventured off on their own and established their own company. Today they maintain good relationships with their former employers. The Masters continue to respect their teachers to this day.

Bosphorus Cymbals has a strong team of cymbal smiths whom are trained at the Bosphorus Factory and most of them working for the company since day one. The Masters continue to craft in the workshop with their workers, guiding them to create the perfect cymbals with their 38 years of experience.
