  • I have never seen this BRILLIANT Beauty actually in the flesh!!

  • And it’s in immaculate condition!

  • Orchestras don’t play crap!

  • So it’s no surprise that this is one of the FINEST SUPER DARK 16” Crash Cymbals you will find.
  • Guaranteed. 

  • And it actually costs $440 - I’m not kidding. $440. For this 16”. 

  • But you need not pay that.  

  • And this one has a glorious Brilliant Finish darkness. Incredible ball peen Hand Hammering 

  • Suspended cymbals are constructed to offer a lush wash with an even build-up and decay - as you hear in orchestras for mallet rolls. 

  • And this gorgeous Artisan is a perfect example of that. 

  • Sabian Brilliant Artisan that was crafted and signed by THE SABIAN CYMBAL MASTER, under the bell. Signed and numbered in gold. 

  • The Artisan Series is Sabian’s most revered and expensive cymbal line, and it shows. Look at the craftsmanship on this 16”.   Beautiful Artisan Hand Hammering all over the place on this Symphonic Suspended. 

  • These Sabians run more than the Zildjian K Constantinople series.

  • Weighing in at only 956 grams this Artisan is the perfect DARK FAST Crash. The profile is low and it has a low pitch to it - it can easily pass as a 16” or 17”. 

  • Raw bell provides a nice attack and takes a breath and then disappears. 

  • Being a 16” the decay dissipates faster than a larger cymbal. Perfect for punches and quick accents that are DARK and lush but then get out of the way.

  • Glorious Brilliant Finish shimmer that lends beautiful darkness.  

  • Sabian poured 50 years of knowledge into this Series and it shows.

  • No issues. AMAZING shape. Played for the video. That’s it.  

  • Perfect for any style of music. I have not seen another.
