The Sabian Legacy Ride delivers an articulate, dark, trashy sound.

The light, crashable Sabian Legacy Ride Cymbal delivers stick definition, wash, and darkness with an unlathed 'control band' limiting tonal spread.

With its innovative "Tone Texture" sound, Legacy was created in collaboration with Dave Weckl, and joins the award-winning HHX Evolution as the legendary young drummer's choice of cymbal sound. Legacy is a deeper, darker contrast to the brighter sound of Evolution.

Weckl, who plays Legacy on their own or mixes them with Evolution models, said "Legacy is the darker side of my sound. These cymbals are vibrant, trashy and beautiful... all at once. 'Tone Texture' gives these cymbals a great deal of dark, musical color that encompasses the full tonal spectrum but digs way down deep, for a broader, more complex tonal personality. The Legacy Ride has great articulation over a dark cushion of sound.... The 'tone texture' of these cymbals makes Legacy a compelling consideration for any drummer looking for sounds that offer a new richness to their playing."

Legacy cymbals are individually handcrafted from Sabian B20 'cast' bronze. They are available exclusively in Natural Finish, and are quality-protected by a special Sabian 2-Year warranty.


Traditional depth and color meet modern clarity and articulation.

Great for jazz!

By Anderson Hall

Comments about Sabian Legacy Ride Cymbal:

This ride is in my opinion the perfect jazz ride cymbal. It is very complex and has a very smokey wash, but the ping still sits on top of the wash. I would not advise someone to buy this cymbal if they were playing metal if they were going to use it as a ride, but as a crash it would be perfect. The crash sound on this cymbal is awesome and has a ton of trashy tones you just can't get from other cymbal. This cymbal wants to be played in a jazz trio of some kind. The wash, the light ping and the shoulder shanks provide a great acquisitions to any drummers cymbal bag. Sabian really out did themselves with this one.

This is one fantastic cymbal

By Rob "pEnSKi" Brown

from Toronto, Canada

Comments about Sabian Legacy Ride Cymbal:

Dave's extensive knowledge about tone and texture has helped to create one of the coolest cymbals to play. But if your the type of drummer that carefully chooses a cymbal for it's playability and versatility for the different types of gigs you're hired to play, contemporary pop, country, funk, gospel, swing jazz or fusion then you need to consider this one. I shutter to call this ride only because that's not the only purpose this cymbal serves. The stick definition is consistant with mimimal 'wash' that some thin rides have which causes the cymbal to increase in volume and literally get away from you. The bell is bright but not as powerful in heavier quarter note pounding kinda grooves. It is, however, great for accents. One of its best qualities is it's crashability. It's a cymbal that encourages you to play it differently within the same performance only because you can. Ride on it, accent with it and crash the top of the bar all in confidence. You'll notice a single unfinished ring on the underside of the cymbal. I think this is a control ring of sorts to play a part in keeping the thing from getting away from you when riding on it as mentioned before. Pick it up. Check it out.
