This fantastic new range from Sabian takes the already wonderful Artisan design down a deeper, darker and dirtier route. Many of the handcrafting elements used in the design and production of the Elite range have been previously abandoned by even the most traditional cymbal companies, with Sabian ignoring the norm and producing something truly unique to the world of Cymbals in this day and age.
Tonally the â€œblack sheep" of the Artisan family!
With a tone that is lower in pitch and drier than other cymbals from the Artisan family, these new Elite hats will certainly appeal to players who are looking for a versatile cymbal that would be a great choice for more mainstream sounds, whilst at the same time sporting a not-so-shiny finish. The added complexity of Elite hats is achieved largely through unique lathing and extensive multi-peen, high-density hammering during the manufacturing process. They also sport the traditional Artisan cup and weight (medium-light top over a medium-heavy bottom).
SABIAN Artisan cymbals have always been masterpieces, consistently pushing forward the art of cymbal making while delivering an old-world sound. Artisan Elite are the latest cymbals from Sabian to delivery on the Artisan promise!
- Darker, lower-pitched and drier than regular Artisan Hats
- More Traditional Artisan cup, profile and weight deliver more control for more mainstream sounds
- Unique lathing delivers mix of open tone and dry articulation
- The darker side of the Artisan family!
