  • No longer offered in the catalog, and Sabian’s Custom shop has been closed for a while now. 

  • This is the rare VERY EARLY DUO RIDE - and this particular one is THIN and DARK too.  An exceptional beauty!  

  • Sabian made this beautiful HH years before Zildjian ever offered a Hybrid Series, and that's what I love about Sabian, they are fond of experimenting.

  • The inside 12s" are raw and unlathed with heavy ball-peen HH handhammering, while the outer 8s" are fully lathed and permit the cymbal to open up when crashed upon. 

  • Very low profile gives this Duo an ultra-dark low pitched tone while the half-raw section provides terrific stick definition.

  • Hand shaped Mini Bell - NO other Sabian has this design. It offers control and better stick articulation - and that’s along with the raw bell. 

  •  ONLY 1947 grams - plays like a beautiful dark Thin Crash or Thin Light Ride.  Overall a hint of control. 

  • Outfitted with 3 brass rivets for a very light and subtle rain-on-the-roof sizzle.  

  • Can easily be a straight up Hand Hammered Dark Crash. 
  • Fantastic for low to loud settings. 

  • One of the darker and lower pitched cymbals Sabian ever made. And this one is one of the earliest too. 

  • Terrific shape. No issues. Aged beautifully over the last 25 years. 

  • And absolutely beautiful sounding dark sizzle with an even control.  

  • One of the nicest truly mellow, dark cymbals you will find. And no big company makes anything like this today.
