With the 22" Artisan Ride, SABIAN has created a cymbal that has managed to elude cymbal-makers for centuries. Not only does it put out glassy, well-defined stick click over an aggressive hotbed of dirty, dark-edged tone that bubbles beneath the surface ? it also features a piercing bell and delivers superb crash-ability! The elements found in this instrument are so intense that the sound almost sizzles with heat. The Artisan Ride, with its raw bell design and high-density hand hammering, is truly a masterpiece. The pinnacle of cymbal manufacturing, these fine instruments work superbly in any musical setting, whether Rock, Hip-Hop, R&B or Jazz.
