  • Here’s a beauty you rarely see in the flesh -  not a big box store google shock photo, I actually HAVE this hard-to-find 22” right here and in my hands.

  • New this 22” costs $600. Yes indeed. It’s on par with the flagship Sabian Artisan 22s”. 

  • Fortunately, you need not pay that much.

  • Gorgeous Jeff Hamilton Signature Series Hand Hammered Sabian CRESCENT 22” HAMMERTONE Ride in AMAZING condition. Played for a few minutes and that’s it.

  • This is a glorious, light, very warm, airy 22” that has a terrific stick attack floats above a beautiful slightly complex wash.

  • A perfect Light Main Ride or Left Side Crash Ride.

  • 2566 grams puts it perfectly at a Light eMedium Thin.

  • Here’s what Sabian has to say about this Hammertone:

    “The Hammertone Ride is a versatile cymbal that provides both ride and crash properties - a crucial consideration given that Jeff does not use a crash in his standard set up. The high profile and exaggerated bow curvature were achieved through extensive hand hammering. A special lathing technique results in tapered edges that provide controlled stick attack and warm spread when used as a crash. Boutique. Old world excellence.”

  • There you go!  That is accurate.  The bow is arched giving this particular 22” a light complexity but indeed the stick attack is quite prominent.  The spread is not overly complex - it’s a perfect balance between attack and wash with a light airiness.

  • Golden. Glowing. Light.  Very classy sounding and smooth!

  • Perfect for low to medium loud settings. 

  • Amazing condition. Very hard to actually find without spending $600 and a “not in stock” wait and guess!
