Artisan is all about traditional dark, rich tone – they virtually sizzle with it.
- Relies on high-density hand hammering to deliver deep, dark, rich tone for the most discerning drummers.
"Each of Sabian's Vault Artisan crashes comes with its own velvet-lined Cordura cymbal pouch, and included with each is a
card signed by the craftsman. Like fine champagne, these cymbals are produced lovingly and aged carefully in limited quantities, and it shows. Artisan brilliant crashes are all thin in weight and sport
heavy hand hammering with large, unlathed bells and a fairly flat bow profile. A large bell maximizes overtones, while a flatter bow yields a lower pitch. This translates to crashes that absolutely roared when struck, with silvery overtones, rich undertones, and a pitch range that would blend with all types of music." - J. R. Frondelli
"The Artisan crashes have dramatic, warm and intricate
qualities. Due to their thinness, the crashes have soft attacks, yet a full projection. When using them as a crash/ride, one of my students observed they had a "warm cushion." Due to their thinness, they have an expected washy-ness when used this way. Overall, the
Artisan crashes reflect the highest end of the cymbal market today." - Doug Brush
