  • Here’s a Custom Sabian that will run you over $600 to get. That’s not the list price and I’m not even kidding.

  • As many a Cymbalholic knows the BRILLIANT FINISH Sound Control is one of the finest cymbals Sabian ever produced - famously mellow, warm, and with the hallmark, subtle upwards flanged edge. And not at all easy to find these days.

  • And this one!  This one right here…is the damn-near-impossible-find “HI BELL SOUND CONTROL.”

  • This is the only one I have ever seen - and it is immaculate and in the bag! Only played for the video.

  • It was this type of cymbal that put Sabian on the map 40 years ago while The fledgling company was trying to overtake big brother - literally! Those early Sound Controls really garnered attention from cymbal enthusiasts, they were much warmer than the robust round discs Zildjian was slinging in the 1980s.|

  • And this Custom Brilliant Finish beauty is a testament to Sabian’s four-decade-old love of the craft.

  • Famously glowing warm, stick attack that floats on top of a Hand Hammered HH wash that has a controlled and even taper.  All with the shimmer of a famous HH Brilliant Finish. 

  • Being the HI BELL, this beauty has a great solid bell for a mellower Sound Control and it also lends a bit more complexity to the wash - just a pinch.

  • An 1842 gram weight invites crashing all day long. 

  • This is an incredibly versatile cymbal - Main Warm Light Ride, BIG 20” Crash, or Left Side Crash Ride. This HH can sit atop a many-a-stand around the drum set.

  • Ultra Rare. Mint on the Bag.
