Crescent Element by SABIAN represents the pinnacle of modern cymbal making. These unique cymbals offer amazing versatility and warm, rich attack, without sacrificing crisp stick definition and articulation. The SABIAN 22" Crescent Element China is duo-lathed (half-lathed top and bottom), and features 24 rivets. Unlike most effects Chinese cymbals, the 22" Element China works more like a medium-light sizzle ride than it does a China, providing more versatility for use in more musical settings. Crafted from pure SABIAN B20 Bronze and fully hand hammered in the SABIAN Vault, this is one bad-ass China cymbal you must hear to appreciate!
