Bosphorus worked for two years with Stanton on the
development of his signature series cymbals. The results capture the funky,
earthy quality of Stanton's trademark sound. The tops are traditionally
lathed with warm tonal grooves, while the bottoms are lathed with the
distinctive wider ridges associated with the Bosphorus New Orleans series.
The sound is 100% Stanton--raw, and aggressive, but always musical and
extremely funky. The rides have great warmth, but plenty of stick
definition. The hats are dark, but can really cut. The Trash Crash features
uneven wobbly edges and deeply hammered pockets on the playing surface. The
sound is trashy, as the name implies, but warm enough to ride on. The Pang
Thang has flanged edges for mellow crashes with plenty of low end wash.
Together they give Stanton the kind of balanced attack he requires as he
takes traditional second line drumming into tomorrow.
