- Here’s a flagship Sabian that’s damn hard to find these days. Maybe you could special order it…that is if the Sabian Custom shop was even open. And it would be north of $600.
- No need to go through all that nonsense and then GUESS what the cymbal sounds like. Have a listen to this one and know what the cymbal sounds like.
- And this 22” is the LIGHTEST one I’ve ever come across. It’s nearly 20 years old and Paperthin.
- 2160 grams.
- Sabian HHX Manhattan Ride in the hard to find and generous 22” size in terrific condition.
- Beautiful blurry edges when played! So light and crashable.
- This 22” has all the hallmark Hand Hammering of Sabian’s top of the line HHX Manhattan - back when Sabian was not just naming things “Medium” or “Heavy” but was creative with their series.
At 2160 grams this 22” plays like the perfect light and airy Complex Warm Thin Ride. For a 22” is easily bendable and has an incredibly responsive glowing stick attack.
- Easily crashable. Easily rideable with a subtle liveliness to it.
- Super light and airy stick attack, warm with a semi-complex Hand Hammered wash that still remains controlled.
- A true Light Complex 22” that’s mellowed.
- So glowing it plays like it already has rivets in it - even though it doesn’t.
- Aged beautifully over a decade and a half.
- Light Main Ride. Mellow Left Side Ride. HUGE crash. This HHX 22” can occupy a lot of positions on the kit.
- No issues. Beautiful patina mellows it out! As nice a a light and airy, complex 22” you will find. Or not find…
