This is a Rare non catalog Cymbal that Sabian only made a few of. A unique ride sound that no one else will have! The complexity of sounds and tones that you can get out of this lovely ride is amazing. The projection of the ping is very good but with a beautiful wash. I would describe the sound as: woody, sizzle, dark, complex. Here is what Sabian says —- The high density Hand Hammering of the Artisan Rides creates a line with true character. The tone is dark and the stick sound crisp. This ride is rich with traditional tone. The Artisan Medium Ride offers more volume and definition than the Light Ride model. Artisan Elite may just be the finest, most complex cymbals we’ve ever made. *I have included close-ups of 3 very small scratches that are difficult to see with the naked eye (can easily be polished out) but I wanted to include them because they’re the only reason that I’m not listing it as mint. Fantastic for recording in the studio.
