  • Here’s a versatile Sabian you don’t see much beyond a google stock photo these days! 

  • A dark-sounding Sabian EL SABOR 18” AA Crash Ride Multi-Application Cymbal. 

  • As you can see this El Sabor has several interesting features that make it tremendously versatile. 

  • Raw Bell for fantastic riding and gives this 18” cutting attack when crashed upon. 

  • Slightly FLANGED SOUND CONTROL style edge that mellows out this 18” when you crash or ride on it.  

  • Beautiful circular style hammering that is reminiscent of some AAX models.

  • Fully lathed for a rich warm tone that opens up when crashed. 

  • What makes me crow about this beauty is that when played lightly and delicately, it’s controlled - mellow, light, and a bit dry with a solid stick attack- all complements of the famous Sound Control flanged edge and the smaller more controlled 18” size. 

  • But at 1483 grams, lay into this 18” and you get a fantastic semi-dark FULL CRASH tone, with the Raw Bell bite. 

  • The Raw Bell provides plenty of cuts for close riding. 

  • That’s what’s crazy about this El Sabor, it sounds great at a whisper and ALSO at a roar.

  • Mellow and slightly dry to full and bombastic.

  • Overall very clean with a light patina. 

  • A versatile Sabian that works well from low volumes to high volumes.
