  • Here’s a beauty you rarely see in the flesh -  not a big box store google shock photo, I actually HAVE this hard-to-find 20” right here and in my hands.  

  • And you can hear this exact cymbal! Not a guess.  

  • New this 20” costs $544. Yes indeed. It’s on par with the flagship Sabian Artisan 20s”.  

  • Fortunately, you need not pay that much.  Not even close. 

  • 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!
