Sabian 21" HH Raw Bell Dry Ride Cymbal
Sabian is one of the two biggest cymbal makers in the world, and their HH line is one of their very best series of cymbals. Their 21 HH Raw Bell Dry Ride is one of the most unique sounding cymbals I’ve ever heard. Just like its name, it produces an extremely raw and dry sound, but still retains a lot of tone and warmth. It’s definitely a heavy cymbal with a dark sound that is similar to older vintage cymbals.
The HH in the product title stand for hand hammered, meaning this cymbal is hammered by hand, which gives it more character than other cymbals. It has unlathed bell cuts for added articulation while giving it a very distinctive look. There’s also a subtle bell that’s smaller and shorter than most ride cymbals which helps give it a unique sound and clarity with excessive ping. This is one of the very best ride cymbals on the market and will sound great when used with different genres of music.
