Sabian AA Raw Bell Dry Ride Cymbal 21 Inches #1126fb

Sabian AA Raw Bell Dry Ride Cymbal 21 InchesTopped with a solid, raw bell, the versatile Sabian AA Raw Bell Dry Ride Cymbal delivers strong, dry stick articulation with a touch of tone at every volume.The Sabian AA Raw-Bell Dry Ride taps into the bright, classic sounds of the award-winning cymbal company’s traditional AA series. Topped by a raw, unlathed bell, this medium-heavy model is designed to deliver strong, dry stick articulation with a touch of tone at every volume. The raw bell responds with a bright, extremely solid note, while strokes across the bow area are consistently strong and cutting. A powerful cymbal by design, the Sabian Raw-Bell Dry Ride Cymbal delivers solid sticking, but with a tonal quality that makes this a surprisingly musical and versatile ‘dry’ design.Commented Sabian product specialist Mark Love: “The innovative Raw-Bell design proved so popular in our Hand Hammered series (it’s the choice of Phil Collins, Jose Pasillas and Geoff Dugmore amongst many others) that there was a huge demand for the same model only with a brighter, more cutting sound. This AA version has traditional wide-blade lathing circling its solid, raw-bell, so wherever a stick lands the sound is always defined, powerful and clear on every stroke. The AA Raw-Bell Dry Ride cymbal has that power and definition to deliver a kick of energy.”The bright, traditional sound of a Sabian AA cymbal offers a distinct contrast to the darker, traditional sound of the Hand Hammered series. Starting with B20 bronze multi-rolled and processed for maximum durability before being shaped to a high profile under 75 tons of hydraulic pressure and machine hammered for a tonal consistency, Sabian AA cymbals are energized, bright, and musical. A versatile series with some very specialized models, Sabian AA is ideal for any music requiring bright tonal presence, power and cut.The Sabian AA Raw-Bell Dry Ride cymbal is crafted from Sabian B20 ‘cast’ bronze, the world’s most musical and durable cymbal metal. Available in Natural and Brilliant Finish, it is – like all Sabian AA cymbals – quality-protected by the One-Year Warranty. 22″Medium-heavyStyle: vintageSound: brightMetal:B20Finish: naturalPitch: mid to high
