Default New Bosphorus Masters, Antique and New Orleans!

..along with some more pictures of the Gretsch Catalina Club.

I received today from Tony @ Cymbals Only:

15" Masters Hi-hat 1045/1270g
19" Antique Thin Ride 1723g
21" Orleans Ride 2217g

I really liked the Turks I had (well, still have, but I'm selling), but after I while they were too dark and I wanted something a bit more traditional with some more color to them, so based on Tony's recommendations, I chose these. They are WONDERFUL. The 15" hats, as I suspected, blend into the sound of the drums and have a softer presence to them. The 19" Antique is much brighter, and speaks quicker than the 19" Thin Turk I was using, and has a brighter stick definition and clearer bell. The 21" New Orleans is washier than the 20" Medium Turk I was using, but it's controlled and has dry stick definition and a clear bell. It also has a wonderful trashiness to it.

Here is a small recording I made of the cymbals. I start with the hi-hats, the 19" Antique and then the 21" New Orleans. It's not the best, but my digital camera is all I have at the moment. www.handidrummed.com/newbos.mp3

So here are pictures with them along with my Gretsch Catalina Jazz complete with Gibraltar flat base cymbal and snare stands, a DW Delta 3 Nylon Strap bass pedal, and a DW Flat Base hi-hat stand.

Well, close. My absolute dream kit would be a DW Jazz Series or Classics Series but they don't make an 18" bass in that series.

Wow, we almost bought the same antique ride, I also just got mine. ( http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=28724 )
Great cymbals, I think that in a year or two, bosphorus and istanbul will be the main cymbal companies

From the first pic I could clearly tell you that you`re happy. :-)
The kit sounds really vintage...and no, the recording quality is not that crappy. It`s okay, I can hear how it sounds like, you know.
The cymbals are amazing and the 15" hi-hat isn`t actually heavy, or is it?

Cool choice Rob, cool choice...

Thanks, I'm glad it doesn't sound that bad.

No, they're really not that heavy. My Light/Crisp Turks were 996/1211 and these are 1045/1270, so they're heavier, but not by much. On Cymbals Only the weight on these was listed in red, which I believe means that they're pretty light specimens compared to other cymbals of the same size and model.

Tuxido - Nice. How much does yours weigh? I was tempted to keep my 20" Medium Turk on the set as a 3rd option but I really need the money now *lol*

Gruntersdad - Nope, it won't happen. 1) My wife would kill me if I got another set any time in the next 5 years, even if I did sell all my stuff for this and it cost us nothing technically and 2) She'd kill me for spending $3,000+ on a set, unless we won the lottery *lol*

Very nice, Rob! Those flush-base stands are classy as all get-out.
I'm glad the new Bos' are working out for you, and the drums sound GREAT! You've definitely got a knack for tuning. The cymbals are a HUGE change from your Turks, but they sound pretty good, and from the looks it of (first picture) you seem pretty pleased.

Congrats.

Ahh, I thought you'd ask that. :P
I think I'm warming up to it, I think it blends nicely with the rest of the kit. But I'm not sure that I'd buy one myself, but it seems to be working for you, as well as many others -- that's what counts.

Nice beard, Rob!

I love the kit, I play one at my lessons every week! I'm a big fan of the masters hats; hope you're enjoying them!

It's very nice. As with the hi-hat stand, I find that the most basic option is the best. I went from a Pearl Eliminator to this and I love it. I could never dial in the right feel with the Eliminator, even with the cam options, the independent beater/footboard angle adjustment, and it always felt like there was always more tension in the pedal no matter how loose I had it compared to other pedals. The DW is great. Just a spring adjustment (which I kind of don't like because you have to take it off to adjust it because there is a metal tube under the spring that you have to unscrew to change tension and I can't do it with one hand), and beater angle with goes with the pedal angle. Fine for me. It's the quickest and most powerful pedal I've used.

Tuxido - Yes, the inside is unlathed. I should have taken a picture of both. The masters hi-hat is KIND OF semi-unlathed. From the bell out about 4" it's the same look as the New Orleans.

Mr. Pasquini - Thanks, lots of love for the beard lately *lol*

Wow thats really great! I'm working on building a set sorta like that. 18X12 bass tho. Everything sounds great! Ive never been much of an evans fan but the G1 set for only $14 got me. The sound great on my Gretsch Catalina Maple. How is the 12" tom on the snare stand working out for you? I'm thinking about doing that just to save a bit of money(rims are not cheap).

Those cymbals are GREAT this one better be a keeper

Hey Dom, I got a guestbook comment on my site from someone named Dom on the East Coast, was that you? Just curious *lol*

The 12" on the snare stand is working out great. I don't notice any loss of resonance, contrary to popular belief.

nope, sold them for the sake of portability. thankfully i didn't sacrifice any sound or quality while doing so.

how's the bass sound? are you using the stock head?

That's why I got mine, that and because I prefer the tone more.

The bass sound is really nice, there's an mp3 up above where you can hear it. I'm currently using the stock heads although I have an EQ4 Batter coming. For now I'm just going to use the stock solid reso. What about you?

Very cool.

Im going pedal shopping next week on my 16th birthday (yay) so ill weigh up the DW and the Cobra pedals. (Damn double pedals being so expensive)

Congratulations on the cymbals! I was trying to build a kit of those sizes but I lost out in the last minute on ebay. With those cymbals I bet it's the badgers nadgers.

I can't compare this bass drum to the Renown because this bass is Mahogony, and the Renown was maple...also the sizes were completely different. But I enjoy the size more than the Renown which was an 18x22. It's just more comfortable to play, it has more tone and resonance without being boomy when tuned up high, but still has some punch to it.
