HERE'S ONE SABIAN DOESN'T MAKE ANYMORE!! THE ONLY "VAULT" CYMBALS LEFT ARE THE ARTISANS, AND THOSE AIN'T THIS!

You know what sucks, a lot of people were not sure what exactly the VAULT Ride was, it was a victim of confusing marketing. But if you just LOOK at it, you'll see it's actually quite an interesting, versatile 20".

And if you like straight up stick ATACCK but don't want a cymbal so dry it's DEAD, then this VAULT is a fantastic choice! 

The TOP is fully lathed and has a Brilliant Finish, while the UNDERSIDE is RAW and UNLATHED, and gives this Vault Ride a SEMI-DRY, FOCUSED, stick definition--which is a fantastic combo when you want a ride that has fantastic stick DEFINITION and a controlled wash--it's like a tighter, more controlled, more even and balanced PING Ride-but lower pitched and a bit darker. 

And this beauty actually cost $320 when they WERE produced.

Fortunately you can play a a fantastic, Top of the Line Sabian, for the price of some crappy, Paiste PST7 Ride.

Posted for your immense pleasure is this lovely, DISCONTINUED Sabian VAULT 20" RIDE Cymbal that is in absolutely EXCELLENT Condition!! Check out the pictures! I am happy to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this VAULT. Just a nice patina that has started to befriend it.

Sabian described this cymbal as:

"Maximizing the cutting potential of the silver in its bronze alloy, this raw-bottom model sounds bright and focused."

Apparently Sabian has added SILVER to the alloy. Again, the Top of this 20" is a Classic thin, fine-lathe with a Brilliant Finish. However, the UNDERSIDE of this cymbal is RAW and UNLATHED--a la the old school Leopard Ride (one of my personal favorites.)

Weighing in at a lovely 2418 grams, this VAULT plays like a smoooo00000OOOOth Semi-Bright Medium Ride. The attack is FOCUSED and prominent--compliments of the unlathed underside, and it is followed by a smooth, semi-bright, silvery SHIMMERING wash. This cymbal is considerably smoother and lower pitched than a Ping Ride or garden variety Medium Ride. The Brilliant Finish and the dollop of Silver, truly gives this 20" a shimmering, silvery wash. It's fairly bright BUT NOT AT ALL HARSH. And that's what's cool about this Vault. I would not call this cymbal dry, but the unlathed surface does rein in the wash.

The bell is extremely SOLID and projects something fierce. Very cutting. And it still has the classy smoothness of a Top of the Line Sabian.  A versatile 20"!! 

This Top of the Line Sabian is a workhorse cymbal. Its strong bell and brighter leanings make it perfect for rock, pop, funk, country, definitely blues and fusion, reggae, R&B, and session work. And its smooth, silvery shimmer makes it a great Medium Light Ride for jazz and lower volume settings.

There's literally NO NEED to SPEND $330 or more on a new Sabian Top of the Line Ride!

This one sounds amazing!

So do yourself a favor and grab this great sounding NO LONGER MADE 2418 gram Sabian VAULT 20" Ride!!
