Default mystery cymbal

Can anyone recognize what brand of cymbal this is?

Do you not know, or are you testing us? The latheing and hammering of the ride looks like high quality work to me. Wonder how it sounds.

Uh, Tennessee, There's two of them there.

The big one looks like it just recently lost a fight with a lathe but was saved by the bell. The little one looks B-20.

The ride looks like B20 to me, but looks can be deceiving. A raw bell like that may not be common, but I've seen it on several different cymbal models over the last few years. .

I have n't seen anything like that one. But not big on cymbals. The patina is 40 years apart, only thing that'll do that is a lathe. It could have been to the barber shop for a few grams off the top.

YATB (Yet Another Turkish Brand) called Legado: https://legadocymbals.com/

That ride matches their Heritage series.

Around since May 2017 according to Modern Drummer: https://www.moderndrummer.com/articl...aspian-series/

I believe these are made by Bosphorus because the ink giving model and diameter on the underside matches the Bosphorus ink stamps. For example these hats where the use of Bright for the heavier ones is a Bos thing.

BINGO! You nailed it.


It's a 24" paper-thin ride.

Bosphorus makes a Latin series which is similar but covers more of the cymbal than just the Bell. What you are seeing is not all that uncommon these days. The patina is not 40 years apart. It's purposely made that way and presumably affects the sound in a particular way. Here is an example of a similar look from Istanbul Mehmet.
