Sabian HHX Legacy Heavy Ride is strong on definition.
Sabian 12233XLN Legacy 22 inch Heavy Ride
Heaviest within the Legacy range
"The 'Heavy' name refers to this model being the heaviest within the Legacy range," said SABIAN master product specialist Mark Love. "And though it has the crisp, clean stick articulation of a heavier cymbal, the weight of this model is in the medium range, so it is much more playable and musical than the name might suggest. As for the sound, Dave likes a clean, articulated stick response over a warm cushion of tone. Because his definition of darker is much deeper than most, designing that sound - crisp articulation over a low, deep and dark tonality - was extremely difficult. Extensive design work was necessary to make it happen, and our craftsmen employ various unique techniques in the process.An unbelievable amount of work
Concluded Weckl: "My time in the Vault revealed just how difficult it is to create many of the Legacy models. Between the idea and the actual cymbal there is an unbelievable amount of work. Like me, Mark Love and his team want to get the sounds as perfect as possible. Not only have they done an amazing job of doing this, their ability to be so consistent in making each cymbal sound and perform the way it should really impresses me."Hand crafted from SABIAN B20 bronze
