  • Here’s a fantastic sounding DRY Sabian that is damn near impossible to find! And this was one of the earlier Sabian Signature models from way back in the day when the Signature program had just begun : Sabian Rod Morgenstein Signature Tri-Top 21” Ride. 

  • Regardless if you're a Winger fan or not (and you SHOULD BE,) this is a great sounding Sabian--like a DUO Ride but BRILLIANT and this particular Tri-Top is even MORE DRY.

  • Its 3330 gram gram weight provides a simply fantastic stick definition and attack. 

  • Sabian described this cymbal as:
    "Raw bell and perimeter deliver penetrating cut, with lathed bow and edge offering a solid blend of definition and tone."

  • C'mon man that's POETRY!!!  

  • And then you go get pizza at the Rainbow Room after the A ‘n’ R guy and his stripper girlfriend tell you "You're going straight to the TOP kid! Here, now don't snort too much, we need to shoot that promo vid tomorrow! Goodbye Van Nuys hello Beverly Hills!"

  • As you can see, what makes this cymbal unique is the 3 different playing surfaces.

  • The bell is unhammered and unlathed and provides a SOLID "DING" tone that cuts extremely well.

  • The 3" right below the bell are hammered but still unlathed, but hammered, and provides a prominent stick attack with a DRY tone that's semi-dark and fairly aggressive--similar to a Zildjian K Custom.

  • As you migrate to the outer 5" of the cymbal, the cymbal is hammered AND lathed and yields a dry yet smoother attack with a subtle wash that floats underneath.

  • Add the dark shimmer of a Brilliant Finish and you have this hard-to-find beauty! 

  • What's great about this Tri-Top ride is that the theory actually works in practice.

  • You CAN get several different tones from this cymbal. The bell cuts wonderfully well, the hammered unlathed surface provides a strong semi-dark stick attack that is also dry, and the edge is perfect  for a smoother tone that is still fairly dry.

  •  And you'll have sex wearing LA GEAR high tops!

  • No issues.  Great condition. A unique and versatile Sabian DUO style 21” that you never see these days.
