  • This is one of the thinner HHs I’ve seen in this series. Gorgeous.  

  • No need to spend $575 on a new Sabian HH 22” King Ride that’s going to look and sound exactly like this beauty right here after five minutes.

  • Hell! I don’t even think you can get this gorgeous 22” anymore. Sabian doesn’t make them.  And this one has a gorgeous light complexity to it - a bit more than most. It’s dry by not dead!  Crashes very well too! 

  • This particular 22” has a gorgeous dark sienna hue. It’s wonderfully DRY with a super light and breathy, airy wash that dissipates quickly.

  • As you can see this cymbal is extremely heavily hand hammered and unlathed and raw giving it a dark, dry attack. A very smoky tone, reminiscent of the Agop Turk Ride but with a bit more stick articulation. 

  • Fully lathed underside supplies a hint of breathiness and body underneath a very controlled attack. 

  • Here's what Sabian has to say about this King Ride:
    "The 22" Sabian Big & Ugly HH King Ride Cymbal has just right amount of dry, dark, and wash. Powerful and sophisticated, it may be the most complex cymbal of the collection because depending how you strike it, it can be so many things. Big & Ugly is a collection of unique Ride cymbals from Sabian. They are big, dark, loose and dynamic but most importantly, they are fun to play. Although the collection contains cymbals that span multiple Sabian cymbal series, they are all united by their great complexity, versatility and distinctive appearance."

  • A thin 2388 grams - thinner than most. Dark. Dry. Terrific attack. Great response. Controlled but with a great subtle wash. 

  • Easily crashable. Plays like a very fast HUGE 22” Dry Crash when laid into.
  • And this would be an excellent choice for rivets if you're so inclined.

  • Opens up at just a whisper. Roars when crashed upon.  

  • Amazing shape. Looks perfect. A gorgeous crashable Dry Dark Hand Hammered 22” with a very quick decay.
