Gorgeous Jeff Hamilton Signature Series Hand Hammered Sabian CRESCENT 20” HAMMERTONE Ride in AMAZING condition. Played for a few minutes and that’s it.
This is a glorious, light, very warm, airy and amooth sounding 20” that has a terrific stick attack floats above a beautiful slightly complex wash but remains controlled.
- It has a Mini Bell that helps control the wash beautifully.
- Still easily crashable.
- A perfect Light Main Ride or Left Side Crash Ride.
- VERY THIN 1694 grams puts it perfectly at a Light Paperthin to Thin.
- Here’s what Sabian has to say about this Hammertone:
“The Hammertone Ride is a versatile cymbal that provides both ride and crash properties - a crucial consideration given that Jeff does not use a crash in his standard set up. The high profile and exaggerated bow curvature were achieved through extensive hand hammering. A special lathing technique results in tapered edges that provide controlled stick attack and warm spread when used as a crash. Boutique. Old world excellence.”
- There you go!
- That is accurate.
The bow is arched giving this particular 20” a light complexity but indeed the stick attack is quite prominent compliments of the smaller bell. The spread is not overly complex - it’s a perfect balance between attack and wash with a light airiness.
- Golden. Glowing. Light. Very classy sounding and smooth! Crashes with ease.
- Perfect for low to medium loud settings.
- Amazing condition. Very hard to actually find without spending $544 and a “not in stock” wait and guess!
