Here's a UNIQUE Sabian that had it's chance at eternal life, but you, the voter, snatched that life away!

You are The Decider!

But fortunately, this single disc escaped the genocide...

...I happen to have right here, this UNIQUE Sabian ARTISAN "CYMBAL VOTE" PROTOTYPE 22" RAW BELL Ride that is in AMAZING Condition.  Check out the pictures!  I am thrilled to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this Beauty! It's EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN!!!  And check out the Hammering!! That's a hell of a lot of work!

 

Weighing in at a lovely 3538 grams this 22" plays like a Focused Brilliant bastard child of the Leopard Ride and the Raw Bell Dry Ride that was adopted by an Artisan and raised with grace and beauty and a silver spoon in its mouth because DAMN THESE ARTISANS COST $$$SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS NEW$$$!

LORD HAVE MERCY! And you can't even GET this Artisan!!! It was only available for a few weeks on the TOUR!

The bell is UNLATHED and solid. It cuts extremely well. As you migrate down to the plain of the cymbal, the tone opens up and overtones emerge and blend together perfectly (Sabian's Artisans really are beautiful instruments.)  For a cymbal with a medium to medium heavy weight, this Artisan is subtley complex sounding--HOWEVER the stick attack definitely remains ON TOP. Great definition on this particular 22"! And when you crash/accent this 22", it unleashes a torrent of tones.  And don't forget about the DARK SHIMMER of the Brilliant Finish!!!

It's a terrific sounding Hand Hammered Artisan Ride WITH fantastic definition and a SOLID bell. Truly a WORKHORSE cymbal. Responsive at lower volumes at the edge, and definitely strong enough to project in loud LIVE settings.

You can use this Top of the Line Sabian VAULT Prototype 22" Raw Bell Ride for whatever your heart's desire. Its darker leanings, great stick attack and subtle complex tone is perfect for jazz, blues, ballads, trio work and soul. And its STRONG Bell and great projection make it a welcomed edition to ANY funk, fusion, pop, rock, country, R&B, gospel or session rig. And this 22" is a Beast live. It's incredibly musical and STILL cuts through.

THIS ONE is in AMAZING CONDITION!  NO NICKS, DENTS, DINGS ETC.

AND IT'S AS RARE AS A VICTORY IN CLEVELAND!!!

So do yourself a favor and grab this UNIQUE Sabian ARTISAN 22" "CYMBAL VOTE" PROTOTYPE RAW BELL Ride.

And hang onto it!

A RUN-OF-THE-MILL SABIAN ARTISAN WILL COST YOU $600! WHY NOT GET SOMETHING UNIQUE???!!!
