- It was this type of cymbal that put Sabian on the map 40 years ago while the fledgling company was trying to overtake big brother - literally! Those earlier Sound Controls really garnered attention from cymbal enthusiasts, they offered more control and more of an ON TOP stick attack than what Zildjian was slinging.
- And this Brilliant Finish beauty is a testament to Sabian’s four-decade-old love of the craft.
- Famously tight and bright stick attack that floats on top of a controlled wash and even taper.
- All with the shimmer of a famous HH Brilliant Finish.
- Very CLEAN stick attack but not brittle. It’s mellowed 30 years and offers a warm tone with a light brightness.
- This beauty has a great solid rounded over that cuts extremely well - especially for a mellower Sound Control and it also lends a bit more complexity to the wash - just a pinch.
A 2197 gram weight gives it a medium thin constitution and ensures a tight articulated definition and tone.
- Still easily crashable - not a heavy cymbal.
- This is an incredibly versatile 20” - Main Tight Bright Ride, Left Side Crash Ride. Or add rivets for a beautiful Sizzle tone that still has a strong definition
- This earlier Sound Control can sit atop many-a-stand around the drum set.
- And you can’t even get these any more. The Custom shop is closed.
