  • 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.
