Sounds as powerful and distinctive as the drumming of rock icon Appice!
Before Carmine Appice, there was no "rock" drumming as we know it today. There were great drummers, but it was Carmine's combination of R&B groove, rudimentary chops, and sheer power that launched hard rock and heavy metal playing. With the Vanilla Fudge, Jeff Beck, Cactus, Rod Stewart, Ozzy, and Blue Murder, Carmine defined heavy metal, hard rock, and speed metal drumming as we know it today. This is exactly why Sabian has constructed this ride cymbal in his honor.
Sabian may be the modern cymbal company, but its roots go way back. This Vintage Rock Ride sounds like classic sounds of the 60s. It really is a dark, vintage sound. What's great is how that dark tone blends into the music, so it adds power by being part of the sound rather than cutting through, like brighter cymbals do. To ensure the strokes don't get lost in that tone, this Sabian ride cymbal has strong stick definition and a punchy bell.
