Here's a fantastic SHIMMERING Sabian THAT I HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE!! 

THE 18" AA FLAT BELL!!  I've seen the 20", and a few 22s", but NEVER a smaller 18"!! 

 

And this particular AA is outfitted with ALL 6 rivets still intact! 

 

THIS particular Brilliant Finish Sabian harkens from the EARLIER days when Sabian was busting their ass making cymbals to take on BIG BROTHER-LITERALLY!

Bright. Shimmering. VERY Glassy. Very controlled. Focused attack. Glorious rain-on-the-roof glow!

 

NO big company offers ANYTHING like this 18" today - the stick attack on this beauty is astonishing. And being an 18" it CUTS but also is controlled! 

Posted for your immense pleasure this never before seen (to me eyes,) RARE EARLIER SABIAN AA BRILLIANT FINISH 18" FLAT BELL SIZZLE RIDE that is in EXCELLENT Condition! Check out the pictures! I am thrilled to report that there are

NO

nicks, cracks, dents or dings on this two dimensional wonder. It's in great shape with a light patina that has begun to grow and mellows out the tone a pinch!

Very glassy, with a gorgeous SHIMMER that doesn't eclipse the initial attack, which is STRONG!!!!!

As many of you may know, Flat Rides are controlled both in volume and in overtones. And this 18" AA Brilliant Flat is the paragon of CONTROL. The 18" size really reigns it in. 

And at 2290 grams this beauty cuts quite well but still remains smooooooth!

Weighing in at a lovely 2290 grams, this Two Dimensional Wonder yields solid stick articulation. The wash is SHIMMERING, glassy, controlled and it decays very quickly--compliments of the absence of a bell. If you crash/accent on this AA you get a great lightening crack that's perfect for quick explosions. And you can lay into this 18" and it will never get away from you. Therein lies its beauty. You can swing your ass off or play quickly on this AA and the stick attack is ALWAYS on top and the overtones FOCUSED and CONTROLLED!!

The 6 installed rivets give it a terrific light Sizzle shadow! It really sounds like NO OTHER CYMBAL out there today! 

This is really a sleeper cymbal. 

Bright. Shimmering. Great articulation. Controlled overtones. Cuts nicely but remains SMOOTH. Glassy with a subtle shimmer! 

THAT IS THIS BEAUTY!!! And you cannot get this tone from anyone anymore!! You would have to spend $600 on a custom order that takes months! 

Obviously this EARLY Sabian AA Brilliant Finish Flat Ride Sizzle is killer for jazz, blues, trios, ballads, folk, soul, jazz, jazz, and jazz. And it swings beautifully for mellower funk, fusion and even pop and rock. If you have a lot of full rides with big bells, this subtle RARE 18" Flat makes a great alternate smooth ride. Use it ANYTIME you need a great shimmering FLAT RIDE that is responsive and CONTROLLED.

And this Flat Bell is in great shape!! AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANOTHER!! 

So do yourself a favor and grab this very RARE glassy sounding EARLY 2290 gram SABIAN AA 18" BRILLIANT FINISH FLAT BELL RIDE SIZZLE!!

And hang onto it!!!
