  • Unique Sabian from their Meet The Masters tour!

  • Sabian offers nothing like this Raw Bell NOVO style 18” China.

  • Hence…it being a Prototype. Stamped “MEET THE MASTERS 2017 AAX -18 M2” under the bell.

  • Sabian inverted style 18” Prototype weighing a very thin 1188 grams.

  • Similar to a Paiste NOVO China - but this beauty is a warmer, golden B20 alloy (unlike Paistes B8 2002s) and it has a Raw Bell but a more incisive attack. 

  • The reverse downward flanged lip measures 2.5” and the profile is low with a subtle Novo style curve.

  • Fairly dark and mellow tone - like a Novo, but the RAW BELL delivers more of a cutting and biting attack.

  • Lower profile lends a lower more mellow, exotic tone but it has plenty of cutting ability - the initial strike is fierce when you really lay into it.

  • Can be aggressive. Or mellow. 

  • Broad dynamic range - nothing like a regular shaped China.  This 18” has a unique, exotic mellowness to it.

  • No issues.  Great shape. Light patina/stick marks.

  • A Rare NOVO-styled prototype!
