  • This Sabian is damn near impossible to find.  And it’s $500 new - I’m not kidding. Sabian raised their prices extensively, especially on the HH series.  

  • And I don’t even think you can get these anymore. And this one you can actually hear before you buy so you can buy with confidence. It was hand picked.  

  • This is one of the finest cymbals they’ve ever made! Have a listen!  I ain’t gonna say it’s not worth the full pop - but you don’t have to pay all that!  Far from it in fact! 

  • This Hand Hammered ultra warm HH Vanguard is the perfect blend of Light Ride and Dark Thin 20” Crash. 

  • It is not even designated one of the other, because it is amazing at both.

  • And it’s controlled with a Mini Bell!   But also has bendable edges. That’s kind of the genius.

  • Here is how Sabian describes this hard to find 20”:
    “A thin, light design with pinpoint lathing and smaller bell, HH Vanguard is ideal for players who want darker cymbals with quick responses.
    The smaller cup and extended profile delivers clean, woody stick definition for such a thin cymbal."

  • And they are right, the attack is very solid for a gram 1765 gram 20”. 

  • With a featherweight of ONLY 1765 grams, this 20” plays (not surprisingly) like a terrific THIN DARK Warm Crash Ride. AN ACTUAL DARK CRASH - RIDE, or RIDE CRASH.

  • The tone is an amazing mix of smooth and complex  It’s Hand Hammered but not overly harsh. It remains lush and has a mellowness to it.

  • And at such a thin gram weight with bendable edges, this beauty is exceptionally responsive. Even a brush stroke sets it off a-rumblin.

  • One of the nicest Sabian Cymbals you will find - or actually not find. I bet Sabian only makes a handful of these a year.  

  • No issues. Extremely clean. Very hard to find especially without the guest of staring at a stock photo.
