        Hear the silver!

        The first of Sabian's new Vault range of cymbals and sounds, the Vault Crash. Handcrafted from Sabian B20 Bronze, this thin yet extremely robust model is designed to deliver powerful and punchy front-end attack with bright, glassy sounds and a full sustain for increased effectiveness. The Vault slices through the mix.

        It also benefits from a power-increasing bell, balanced bell-to-bow response, and narrow pin-lathing that reinforces the high-end focus of its sound. This is a crash with a super-clean, cutting, and modern sound. As Sabian's artisans say, with the Vault Crash you can hear the silver.

        Features
        • Powerful and punchy front-end attack
        • Bright, glassy sounds and a full sustain for increased effectiveness
        • A power-increasing bell, balanced bell-to-bow response, and narrow pin-lathing that reinforces the high-end focus of its sound

        The first Vault crash I purchased was the 19" about two years ago, and this was by a recommendation from a friend, mostly because I had been looking for a good quality crash, instead going through beginner models like water; not to mention I was also looking for a more complex sound. At first I was a tad skeptical, seeing as how I WAS always somewhat of a Zildjian guy, and although I had heard the crash before, I didn't think it was anything special, and he too had a 19". I always figured I could get the same sound with Zildjian's A Custom Series. So, on a wing and prayer, I bought the 19" and as soon as I heard MINE, I instantly fell in love with it. Although we have the size and models, there's still slight variations on the overall tone of the cymbals. I have a slightly darker, more "gong-y" sound than his. Well, I've become hooked, and since then I've bought the 16", 17", and 18", plus the 19". When I play them together, they sound in perfect harmony, playing off of each others tones. It's absolutely fantastic. Although, also since then, I have started to prefer darker sounding crashes, and in turn, I have started to find the brightness of these cymbals a little too bright. But don't get me wrong, I still love these bad boys do death! I wouldn't trade them for anything!! So because of that I also have in my set up now the Sabian Artisan Vault crash in 16" and 18". The dark, complex tones of those against the bright, somewhat simplistic tone the V-Crashes, is an absolute beautiful contrast. Also, now, because of these crashes, I become a complete Sabian devotee and the A Custom Series can't hold a flame to what Sabian has accomplished!! Bravo!

        I spent an hour trying different cymbals and this one sounded far and above the best. Very glassy and just the right amount of volume. I toured for three weeks with this cymbal and had no complaints. Unfortunately it broke after about 25 shows. A large crack circled the bell and it broke away completely. I got a replacement with no trouble at all because I had fortunately purchased the protection plan. Unfortunately the second one cracked after only two and half songs. I decided to try something else and I was sad because this cymbal sounded amazing. I'm convinced that there may have been a manufacturing flaw in both those cymbals because I rarely break any cymbals ever. I do play hard but I haven't had trouble with other medium thin cymbals I won. If you are a lighter player, this cymbal is well worth the price. If you are a heavy hitter, it may not hold up.

        Comments about Sabian Vault Crash:

        I used this as my main crash cymbal for a year or so, it sounds really great. super bright and clean. opens up so easily, even from just riding near the edge it begins to open up. it's also got a great range; sounds just right at low sensitive volumes and can get really really loud without choking or losing its beautiful sounds. it's also thicker than most crashes of this type that i've used?maybe not the smaller diameter vault crashes, but this one looks like it can take a little more heavy hitting, especially if you don't lay too hard into it.that being said, i currently use it as a bottom hi-hat with a well-cracked 18" zildjian K crash-ride on top.

        Comments about Sabian Vault Crash:

        I bought the 17" version of this cymbal about 2 months ago and at first i was a little skeptic to buy it because it's a thin cymbal, but man does it sound good! my only complaint is that it has just a little bit of wash/over-ring to it but when im jammin', can't even tell. I'd recommend it to anyone that wants a great sabian cymbal for a decent price.

        I own a 16" and an 18" in this series and they have a great crash sound. They sound great in the studio and on stage with good clean, brilliant sound and great sustain. I recommend this cymbal to drummers of all styles.

        Comments about Sabian Vault Crash:

        I bought the 17" and the 19" 3 years ago. I actually just cracked the 19" to my dismay, but these are still the best sounding crash cymbals out there. I have yet to find one that compares in the slightest.

        Best Cymbal I've Ever Used!

        By Mitch95ta

        from Newton, KS

        Comments about Sabian Vault Crash:

        I got this cymbal about 1 1/2 years ago and love this thing to death! I bought the 18" crash and use it as my main crash because of the amazing sound you get out of it. Bright, shimmering, glassy, and long decay. I was looking for something that fit this exact description when I searched for a top of the line crash cymbal, and couldn't be happier than with the one that I have. I'm going to buy a 16" Vault Crash very soon because, in my opinion, the sound that these produce is second to none!

        This crash blew my expectations away, they cut threw most music and have great stick response, I love my vault crash. Great for an intermediate or even beyond that to have.

        Comments about Sabian Vault Crash:

        I caved and finally got the Vault crash that was staring me in the face at the music store. The cymbal is wonderfully build. It has the lower fundamental tone, due to its larger diameter, when struck, but then the silver kicks in and it cuts quite well for the peak, and then it has this smooth wash the blends well with the rest of the kit and band. Great job Sabian!!

        Didn't Live Up To My Standards

        By DWdrummer13

        from Michigan

        Comments about Sabian Vault Crash:

        I Just bought the 16" recently and was hoping to replace it with my old main crash. I have always been jumping between Sabian and Zildjian but i decided to get this. It's pretty good as an accent crash very loud but i don't like it as a main crash, for starters it has an extremely long decay which i didnt' want at all its also kind of darker than what i was expecting i was hoping for more of a bright sound. over all it's a great cymbal just not what i was looking for.
