  • FORGED on the VAULT TOUR. 
  • Rare EARLIER Sabian Artisan 20”  Medium Ride in fantastic condition with a glorious patina just starting to build.

  • Aging beautifully and remarkably DRY and Complex, compliments of that decade-old patina.

  • As many of you may know, this is Sabian’s most expensive series and celebrated.  They’ve poured 40 years of knowledge into this Artisan 20” and it shows!

  • A new one of these costs $530, even more expensive than a Zildjian K Constantinople.

  • But this one here is one of the earlier ones forged on the Vault Tour!  Signed and numbered in gold under the bell.

  • What immediately stands out about this 20” is that for an Artisan, it’s DRY sounding. Of course being heavily Hand Hammered it’s also complex sounding.

  • DRY and COMPLEX with a subtly aged mellowness  That’s exactly how this Artisan sounds.

  • At 2403 grams it plays like a Medium and this weight provides a fantastic straight up stick attack that is followed by a semi-broad spread that dissipates fairly quickly, compliments of the decade-old patina.

  • Absolutely incredible solid bell.  Cutting. It’s very strong and projects incredibly well. 

  • What’s great about this specific 2403 gram Artisan is that for a Complex Ride, it has no problem penetrating a mix.  And that makes this beauty wonderfully versatile.  

  • Strong and articulate stick attack that cuts. 

  • Perfect for any style of music.  Definitely collectible. No issues.  A fantastic top-of-the-line Sabian Celebrating decades of their craftsmanship. 

  • From the Vault Tour. With the Artisan Bag. 

  • A joy to own. A joy to play! It will continue to age gracefully.
