1 Year of Bosphorus

Hi all,

So I have been nicely reminded that today it is 1 year since I visited the Bosphorus Cymbal Factory in Istanbul, Turkey. I went to visit and learn about how the cymbals are made and I received a fantastic endorsement with them and was able to hand pick my own cymbals. This even included watching the Bosphorus logo being printed on my 16" Latin Crash - an amazing experience I will not forget!

It's been a great year and its been even better to know that whatever the situation my cymbals can handle it. Thanks to everyone at Bosphorus for their support, Emrah, Hasan, Hasan, Ibrahim, Erhan, Goran and all the staff who hand craft these wonderful cymbals!

Take care

PS. Lonely Robot new album by John Mitchell arrived today, just sublime. Check it out!

Dark Side Success

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note to say that thanks to everyone who came and supported the Dark Side Of The Moon show in Devizes on 22nd November. All the money raised £1,250 will be going to Dorothy House Hospice to a great cause and we had a fantastic time.

Here is a montage of a few clips someone took in the audience from one of the encores and some of our first set of classic rock:
