  • Here’s a rare Sabian - a testament to their love of experimentation and innovation!  Sabian broke off from Zildjian in the  1970s to make cymbals like this  - to think outside the box.  And this beauty is the fruits of their labor. 

  • And it’s a very rare Vintage Hollow Logo one - one of the FIRST Roctagons they ever offered. 

  • In addition to its place in cymbal history, this Sabian ROCKTAGON 18” has been immortalized by drum legend, JEFF “TAIN” WATTS - also thinking outside the box! He’s been a strong fan of the 8-sided Rocktagon. 

  • Vintage Sabian ROCKTAGON 18” Crash in fantastic condition. 

  • It indeed is 8 - sided. Hell, I don’t even know how they did it.  And it’s fairly dark. This particular beauty has a very dark and full tone when crashed upon. 

  • It’s a crash cymbal that leans towards an effects cymbal.  

  • Very full but also with a hint of complexity - like a Trash Crash long before the Trash Crash. 

  • 1923 grams. 

  • Robust 5.5” bell cuts extremely well - especially for an 18”. 

  • Absolutely fantastic as a ride - yes indeed! Great definition - compliments of the weight. 

  • Full. Round wash that penetrates a mix extremely well. Dark. Full.  

  • Crash. Effects. Crash Ride. Ride. Jeff “Tain” Watts

  • Great shape. Golden 35 year old patina.

  • Very hard to find this Vintage Rocktagon today.

  • One of the first ones Sabian ever made.
