      OVERVIEW

      The ultimate traditional cymbal.

      Centuries-old cymbal-making techniques, including "high-density" hand-hammering, were revived in the creation of this limited-availability, super-premium model. This traditional, labor-intensive style of cymbal making enhances the tonal complexity of the Artisan Ride by increasing the amount of hammer dimples dotting its surface. This method boosts playability and increases the responsiveness of the bronze.

      This cymbal expresses a glassy, well-defined stick click with a rich wellspring of dark-edged tone bubbling underneath. It has a piercing bell and great crash capability. The metal used is secret-process B20 bronze from a formula invented almost 400 years ago.

        Comments about Sabian Vault Artisan Medium Ride:

        The twenty inch version of this ride is everything I could want it a ride. It's versatile enough to go from a controlled jazz ride when playing up-tempo swing to a killer rock ride that keeps loud definition and has a killer bell. And for a heavier version, mine has an interesting crash that blends for musical accents. Only keep in mind that individual Artisans make this ride, so they will be different from each other, unlike machine made cymbal lines. So you know you're going to get a good ride with one or two qualities that are uniquely special for that cymbal. Worth the money if you earn it with your craft and desire the BEST sound.

        Great jazz ride cymbal

        By Secrets

        Comments about Sabian Vault Artisan Medium Ride:

        I tested this cymbal using spectral analysis and published the results at percussionreviews.com. It is a very fine ride cymbal, but mainly for jazz use, as it does not have a strong ping. But the wash is beautiful. It compares favorably with the Sabian HHX Legacy ride cymbal.

        Best Ride Ever!!!

        Comments about Sabian Vault Artisan Medium Ride:

        This is hands-down the best ride I've ever heard! It also makes one killer crash cymbal. The ride has enough wash and not too much ping, which makes it an excellent ride! The only problem I have with it is the bell size. This cymbal actually makes a better crash than a ride! This cymbal is a little expensive, but it is an awesome sounding ride/crash!

        This ride is just awsome, period!

        Comments about Sabian Vault Artisan Medium Ride:

        I first purchased this ride with one thing in mind, versatility, and man, it delivered. I play alot of jazz, but a dece amount of roc on the side tow, and with rock, you can crash your way home with projection and clarity with this ride, and ride out thie bow with enough clarity to be heard. For jazz, its a great all round cymbal; enough cut and volume for big band stuff, yet versatile enough for small ensemble work. A good bell for latin stuff, and a beautiful hot shimmering tone that is reminiscent of old times, but fiery with new modern sound. It works great with the light model 20 or 22 inches, or any other left side ride that you have...just awesome...only the zildjian constantinople series matches it. Beauty!!
