Sabian may be the modern cymbal company, but its roots go way back. This Vintage Rock Ride sounds like classic sounds of the 60s. It really is a dark, vintage sound. What's great is how that dark tone blends into the music, so it adds power by being part of the sound rather than cutting through, like brighter cymbals do. To ensure the strokes don't get lost in that tone, this Sabian ride cymbal has strong stick definition and a punchy bell.
