The Sabian Artisan Elite Cymbal has been expertly crafted with classic cymbal-making methods to create a 20” cymbal that provides a dark, deep and dirtier sound. This dark performance is accompanied by a woody bell sound woven into the overall cymbal tone. Separating itself from the Artisan family, the Elite cymbals feature multi-peen, high-density hammering and unique lathing to deliver a lower-pitched sound. To complete the darker tone, the Sabian Elite cymbal has an imperfect surface for those drummers who like blemishes and imperfections on their cymbals.
Darker Sound with Woody Tone
The Artisan Elite Cymbal offers drummers a unique performance consisting of a lower-pitched, drier sound that equates to an overall deeper and darker tone. The multi-peen and high-density hammering creates distinction between the traditional Artisan cymbals and the 20″ Elite. The complex tone is complemented by the integration of a low-profile, woody bell sound. The classic construction of the 20″ Sabian cymbal features a surface with imperfections such as tin oxide, making it ideal for players who prefer a darker look to match the overall performance.
