Sabian HH cymbale Duo Ride 20"
After his older brother Armand took the reins at the Zildjian company, Robert Zildjian decided it was time to strike out on his own. So in 1981, armed with years of experience and a great knowledge of the trade, he founded his own cymbal manufacturing company named Sabian - a name that derives from the names of his three children, Sally, Bill and Andy (SaBiAn). Since then, Sabian has become one of the world's leading cymbal brands and enjoys a great reputation as one of the 'big four' of cymbal manufacturing, along with Zildjian, Paiste and Meinl.
Sabian HH series
The HH (Hand-Hammered) series of cymbals is a line of high-end cymbals, cast from Sabian's special B20 bronze alloy (which contains 20% tin and traces of silver). These cymbals are crafted by the master artisans at Sabian and tend to have a dark, atmospheric sound and a mid to low pitch - hence the Vintage Dark classification that Sabian has given the series. As all HH cymbals are individually hand-hammered, and the power and placement of each hammer stroke will vary, no two cymbals sound exactly alike. This gives the HH series a personal feel that many drummers across the globe have come to love.
Sabian HH 20-inch Duo Ride cymbal
Just by looking at this 20-inch Duo Ride, you know you're dealing with a special cymbal. While the outer part is lathed, the inner part and bell are not, leaving that part of the cymbal with a raw surface that is dotted with tons of small hammer marks. Logically, this heavily influences the sound of the cymbal. While the inner part grants you excellent stick definition, plenty of 'ping' and a small, yet cutting bell, the outer part ensures that it can also produce plenty of wash. This, in combination with its relatively thin weight, makes the Duo Ride very crashable. All in all, this is a versatile cymbal that really makes you feel like it's two ride cymbals in one!
