  • These are Sabian's most expensive Hihats. Aristan Elites - they're $780 at Big Box stores. That even one ups K Constantinoples. By a lot!  

  • $780!!  Damn! And I’m not even sure Sabian makes these anymore! I don’t think Sabian even makes these anymore.  I don’t see them on the site. 

  • Fortunately you need not shell out such mad loot for a stock photo guess  and you don't have to sacrifice tone either. I can't be mad at Sabian for the $780 asking price. These are some of the most beautifully crafted cymbals they have ever produced. Signed and numbered under the bell of the cymbal smith who made them.

  • And this particular pair has a very sweet complexity to them. 

  • The Artisan Elite Series is a little bit darker and drier than the straight up Artisans. They have more of a partial lathe vibe with very heavy Hand Hammerings. And the Top Cymbal is generally thinner too. 

  • Weighing in at only 821 and 1228 grams, this particular pair of 14s" plays like thin, dark, semi-dry complex hihats. The 1228 gram bottom ensures a solid chick tone when played with your foot. But the thin 821 top keeps them extremely responsive with a hint of smokiness.

  • Focused and controlled without sounding dead or clanky. They have a delicate softness to them and a very light and subtle liveliness. 

  • Absolutely immaculate condition. No issues. Truly some of Sabian's finest work.

  • And not $780 for a paltry guess at what they sound like!  No where near that in fact. And you can hear them before you buy so you can buy with confidence!
