HH cymbals are traditionally hand-hammered into shape and sound by Sabian craftsmen. Each cymbal receives between 2,000 and 4,000 hammer blows, resulting in increased musicality, tonal complexity, and unmatched sonic texture.

First, Sabian metallurgists combine measured amounts of copper, tin, and silver to create the centuries-old recipe for Sabian B20 bronze alloy. This molten-hot B20 bronze is then very carefully hand-poured into pots, and once cooled, yields already-musical B20 bronze castings. The B20 castings are meticulously hand-separated by weight and prepared to remove all impurities before being fed through a large rolling oven up to a dozen times, involving a crew of 5 men who must work with choreographic precision under intense heat. During the entire rolling process, blanks must be rotated carefully to create a molecular weave for strength and durability. As the castings become cymbal blanks, custom-built machine tools are expertly hand-operated to press bells into blanks, drill holes in the center, cut them down to size, and bump them for approximate shape.

Hand-hammering artisans shape and form each cymbal with 2,000 to 4,000 precision-placed hammer blows, adding musicality, complexity, and dark tone. Lathe craftsmen operate specially retrofitted lathes, thinning each cymbal to the desired gauge while adding crucial tonal grooves. Each cymbal must be trimmed to exact size and its edges are buffed for smoothness before being individualy hand-tested and hand-weighed in the vault by vault sound specialists. After this critical process, each individual cymbal is placed on a shelf to age, allowing the frantically active molecules to slow down and stabilize, and is once again hand-tested by two vault specialists to ensure they fit the parameters of the series and model.

14" Medium Hi-Hats
Featuring a medium top and heavy bottom, the 14" hi-hats produce warm, full-bodied responses that are clean and musical. They also have solid stick definition.

16" Medium-Thin Crash
The 16" crash mixes power and tone for an explosive response and moderate sustain.

20" Medium Ride
A very musical ride, this cymbal has a nice bell definition and a smooth, warm, and woody stick response.
