What a Ride!

By James A. Harrelson

from Osage City, KS

Comments about Sabian HH Series Raw Bell Dry Ride Cymbal:

I am never satisfied with the sounds I get from my kits. I am always on the hunt for the 'perfect' individual sound, the exact combination of tunings that just come together for that 'total sound package.' I was especially difficult to please when it came to my ride cymbal. My old standby, an early 60's A, just never did cut it for me. When I discovered Sabians in the 90's it really opened my eyes. And then, in an inspired moment, I tried the HH Raw Bell Dry Ride. This is everything you ever wanted in an all-around ride cymbal--cut, ping, a perfect wash that gets out of the way, consistency and smooth decay. It has it all. It is the perfect compliment to a really dry jazz cymbal. And that bell--it could find a home at Notre Dame Cathedral! Play the cymbal heavy, you get everything you need. Play it light--it sounds like Tinker Bell dancing. I've given away a lot of drum equipment over the last 15-20 years to aspiring young students. You'll have to pry this one out of my cold dead hands! It is amazing!

Has great stick definition. Great for anything from Rock to Jazz.

Comments about Sabian HH Series Raw Bell Dry Ride Cymbal:

About a couple of years ago I purchased a Sabian AA Medium Ride and got it signed by Dom Familaro. I wanted to save the signature so about a couple of months ago I purchased a 21'' Sabian Hand Hammered Raw-Bell Dry Ride. This ride is amazing. So far I have had a chance to use this ride on a stage at Skipper's Smokehouse with the Northend Jazz Band and I used it auditioning for the All-State Jazz Band 2005. I love using this ride for anything from Rock to Jazz. For jazz I like a ride that is dry with a few overtones and the Raw-Bell Dry Ride definitely qualifies.

Best ride for clear definition and versatility

By Stephen-xXtaV

Comments about Sabian HH Series Raw Bell Dry Ride Cymbal:

If you do any sort of patterns on the ride and want the impacts to be heard clearly, this is the best cymbal I could find after months of searching the local stores and listening to the online sample recordings. It is called a "dry" ride, but actually it's on the borderline of what I would consider dry. It has more wash and overtones than most other dry rides. The attack is extremely crisp and clean, with plenty of high frequencies and a nice "ping" followed by a relatively quick decay, but still maintaining enough sustain without sounding too dry. The bell has a very unique sound. It's pitched lower than most other bells on 21" rides, has a very loud attack, and a smooth transition between the bell and the bow, both sonically and physically. All in all it's the best ride cymbal I could find that can achieve many different sounds depending on how it's played. This will definitely be a permanent fixture in my kit.

clean, crisp, well suited for many styles

By A. Hubert

Comments about Sabian HH Series Raw Bell Dry Ride Cymbal:

I`ve tried many rides from Sabian and Zildjian, but the closest I could come to finding the sound I was looking for was the Paragon 22" ride. Until I played this one: HH Raw Bell Dry Ride 21" next to it. The Paragon is a bit less expensive but has many different sounds depending on where you play on it. This one is constant and the transition between the bell sound and the bow is very defined. The bow has no unwanted pitch to it and the bell cuts through anything! There is a similar model in the Signature Series under the name Phil Collins but it is a limited edition of 2000 made only. So the next best thing, and for me exactly the same, is this one. A bit expensive maybe, but well worth it! Go try it out next to other models, you`ll see (hear) what I mean.
