$545.00!! That is how much a new Sabian HH Big & Ugly Pandora Ride will set you back. What has the world come too!!! 

Quick shut it shut it shut it shut it!!!!

Looks like Sabian RAISED their prices on these beauties!! AGAIN!!  Damn!

BUT fortunately NO ONE NEED SPEND ALL THAT MONEY!! And you don't have to sacrifice TONE either! You can still get that MASSIVE DARK and DRY PANDORA 24"!!

This is one of Sabian's newer line of cymbals, and while they are BIG only a shallow twit would call these things ugly.  I guess if you're used to a world where lathed AAs and AAXs dominate then an HEAVILY HAMMERED BEAST like this may appear to have fallen out of the ugly tree in one's eyes.  But if you know something about something then you know this badboy is actually BEAUTIFUL!!!

And TWO FOOT of beauty too!! The hammering on this particular 24" is exquisite too!!

And so it is with great pleasure that I offer up this AMAZING Condition SUPER DARK AND DRY MASSIVE  Hand Hammered Sabian HH Big & Ugly 24" Pandora Ride. Check out the pictures! I am thrilled to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents, or dings on this Hand Hammered wonder. It's CLEAN!!!

AS A MATTER OF FACT THIS CYMBAL COULD EVEN PASS AS NEW!

As you can see this cymbal is extremely heavily hand hammered and very lightly lathed giving it a dark, dry attack.  A very smokey tone, reminiscent of the Agop Signature Ride. The hammering on this particular on is really nice.

And this one has that GRILLED LOOK on the underside too!

Here's what Sabian has to say about the Pandora Ride:

"Medium-dark in tone, medium-light in weight, this is the Ride for players who like "Blue" notes. Sitting comfortably between the HH King and HH Nova in pitch and tone, it's the musical equivalent of opening Pandora's Box!"

Is this what's it has come to, Sabian Marketing Dept?  The musical equivalent of Pandora's Box?  Really?  Why not just say you are big Avatar fans and named the cymbal after a fake planet in a big budget movie that was just a rip off of Dances With Wolves and Fern Gully? Yeah, I said it! Fern Gully!

Weighing in at a perfect 3098 grams, this Sabian HH plays like a MASSIVE DRY Thin to Medium Thin Ride. As you would imagine, the attack is very prominent-compliments of that lightly lathed and raw top- and the the wash is dark and definitely organic, compliments of the Hand Hammering, however it remains CONTROLLED! 

And therein lies the beauty of this BEAST! Dark. Dry. Terrific attack. Great response. controlled.

And at 3098 grams is definitely crashable-but that wash dissipates quickly. 

And this would be an excellent choice for rivets if you're so inclined.

This is simply an amazing sounding instrument! Really one of Sabian's nicest endeavors. A fantastic TWO FOOT HH!

Obviously this 24" Sabian HH Big & Ugly Pandora Ride is a no brainer for blues, ballads, trio work, folk, soul...and jazz. However the fun doesn't stop there. You can use it for funk, fusion, country,  pop, mellow rock and ANYTIME you need a great dark, organic, dry and controlled Hand Hammered Tone.  

$545.00?? There's simply NO NEED to SPEND ALL THAT MONEY!

THIS ONE IS IN AMAZING SHAPE!!

Save YOUR MONEY!!!! Why buy a new one when it will look exactly like THIS one after three minutes. Literally. Three minutes.

So do yourself a favor and grab this HUGE & BEAUTIFUL 3098 gram dark and dry Sabian HH Bigh & Ugly 24" Pandora Ride.

And hang onto it.  It's an exceptionally nice one.
