- Here’s what Sabian has to say about this Hammertone:
“The Hammertone Ride is a versatile cymbal that provides both ride and crash properties - a crucial consideration given that Jeff does not use a crash in his standard set up. The high profile and exaggerated bow curvature were achieved through extensive hand hammering. A special lathing technique results in tapered edges that provide controlled stick attack and warm spread when used as a crash. Boutique. Old world excellence.”
- There you go! That is accurate. The bow is arched giving this particular 22” a light complexity but indeed the stick attack is quite prominent. The spread is not overly complex - it’s a perfect balance between attack and wash with a light airiness.
- Golden. Glowing. Light. Very classy sounding and smooth!
- Perfect for low to medium loud settings.
- Amazing condition. Very hard to actually find without spending $644 and a “not in stock” wait and guess!
