Product Description

A Highly Effective Ride Cymbal

The combination of unlathed, hand-hammered bell, tightly-lathed grooves and more dispersed hammering on the bow was specifically designed to control and focus tone on the HH Raw Bell Dry Ride, for increased dryness and clarity. We are happy to report that that it achieves this goal with great success. The raw bell cuts with volume and clarity − never any annoying overtones. Highly articulate, the sound is very focused on the “ping”, but is perfectly capable of delivering lush spread when used as a wash ride. Overall, the HH Raw Bell Dry Ride responds with astounding accuracy − always retaining articulate ping and impressive power. This is a cymbal that is not afraid to rock hard, and you can be sure it will never be overwhelmed by stick size – and that includes the solid, raw bell, which sounds as cool as it looks.

Incredible Versatility

“The Raw Bell Dry Ride design is possibly the single most versatile and effective ride cymbal ever designed,” said SABIAN Master Product Specialist Mark Love. “Not only does it deliver consistently warm and pure sounds, it is ideal for any player wanting the absolute best in terms of consistently clean stick definition across the bow and bell areas, as well as a level of dynamic sensitivity that ensures crisp clarity and accuracy at all volumes. ” With its super-clean sticking on the bow, crisp loud bell and well-balanced wash when played on the edge – this may just be the perfect ride cymbal!

Sabian HH – Vintage Dark

HH means hand hammered…and for centuries, the most musically and tonally complex cymbals have been hand hammered into shape and sound. That sound is warmer, darker…dripping with tone. It’s this low-pitched warmth and darkness that makes HH blend into the music, making it fuller, richer – more complex and interesting. With each blow of the hammer, the tonal richness and complexity of sound increases. But hammering is not the only process that gives HH its musical sound. The traditional wide-blade lathing also contributes, cutting away the raw surface of the cymbal to create grooves through which tone-generating vibrations travel. Steve Ferrone says it best: “It’s very musical…very special. I’ve played HH for years…for funk, jazz, rock…everything in the studio, on stage…everywhere. ” Chester Thompson agrees: “When I’m playing the big gigs, I play really, really hard, but I don’t want metallic, I don’t want brash. With HH that vintage dark sound is always there and always warm. ”

Hand-Crafted – Every Step of the Way

Like all SABIAN B20 Cast Cymbals, the HH Raw Bell Dry Ride begins its life in the Foundry, where a centuries-old family process is used to create the most musical and durable of all cymbal alloys. Inside the Foundry, SABIAN metallurgists combine carefully measured amounts of Copper, Tin and Silver, heat it to 2100 degrees Fahrenheit, and pour it into casts. At this stage, it’s hard to believe these castings will eventually become a highly-versatile cymbal like the HH Raw Bell Dry Ride. But first, they must go on a journey through Multi-rolling for intensity, Hammering for tone, Lathing for enhanced response and projection, and a final Aging process in the legendary SABIAN Vault for optimum sound. In a sense, it’s a journey that’s only complete when you play the cymbal of your choice − an evolution from idea to reality. It is this process – innovation blended with traditional cymbal-making – that allowed AAX to make history as the first modern cymbal concept in B20 bronze.

This is the ride that I use, and, as far as I can tell, is identical to the HH Raw Bell Dry Ride Cymbal 21 inch Brilliant Finish 21 inch Brilliant Finish in all aspects only, of course, not in a brilliant finish.

This is a nice, jazzy, dry ride that is surprisingly heavy and has a bright bell. Due to its weight you have to crash hard on it to get it to crash, but when you do the sound is explosive. For this reason I feel it's the perfect counterpart to my Sabian 18 Inch AA Rock Crash, which I use to play mostly rock drums. When I got this ride it was the only Raw Bell Dry Ride Sabian offered, but now it appears they offer Raw Bell Dry rides in their HHX, AAX, and AA series as well. If that seems a little overwhelming, there is a great comparison video on YouTube entitled "SABIAN's Raw Bell Dry Rides" that can help you decide - [...]

I watched the video a few times and I'm still glad i went with the HH series, however based on your taste and style you may find one of the other three better for you. No matter what have fun and keep playing!
