  • $700.  I’m not even kidding. 

  • This is Sabian's most expensive cymbal and series. Aristan Elites - the 22” is $700 at Big Box stores. That even one-ups K Constantinople's. 

  • And with that - who knows what you get!!  A guess. A $700 stock photo and a guess! 

  • Fortunately, you need not shell out such mad loot and you don't have to sacrifice tone risk your future! 

  • I can't be mad at Sabian for the $700 asking price. This 22” is one of the most beautifully crafted cymbals they have ever produced. Signed and numbered under the bell of the cymbal smith who made it.

  • The Artisan Elite Series is a little bit darker and definitely drier than the straight-up Artisans. They have more of a partial lathe vibe with very heavy Hand Hammerings.

  • Weighing in at only 2328 grams, this particular 22” plays like DRY DARK THIN RIDE. 
  • Dark, extremely responsive. Organic and focused stick attack with a very controlled wash and subtle decay evaporates like a line drop in the Mojave. 

  • At only 2328 grams this 22” is easily crashable. It has a dark and brooding attack that decays quickly for a large cymbal.  Amazing for lightning-like accents while riding or just as a straight-up dark dry head-turning crash!! 

  • Absolutely fantastic condition. No issues. Played for the video.  Truly some of Sabian's finest work.
