The sound of silver

The bright sound of the Sabian Vault Ride Cymbal --powered by silver in its B20 Bronze--slices through the music around it. From low volumes to loud, this ride explodes with power and sustain. Totally modern!

The Sabian Vault Crash introduced an innovative new concept in cymbal sound: "the sound of the silver slicing through the music." The popularity of that model and resultant consumer demand led Sabian to introduce the Vault Ride. Combining a top featuring pinpoint lathing with a raw, unlathed bottom that focuses its response, this model not only offers the added value of the slicing power of silver in its sound, the Vault Ride delivers glassy, clean responses at every volume.

Sabian product specialist Lorenzo Wright says, "The Vault Ride is designed to maximize the cutting potential of the silver in its B20 bronze. To ensure that sound remains focused, clean and clear the bottom of the cymbal is left unlathed. This raw bottom tightens up the overall response, so the sound created by a stick hitting the top is crisp, clear and projected without the vibration of the cymbal creating too much wash and reducing that clarity. The Vault Ride may be a medium weight cymbal, but with this innovative design minimizing the wash, it remains totally effective, with the sound of the silver slicing through when played at even the loudest volumes."

The Vault Ride was the last in the Vault Collection, which was introduced by Sabian in 2005, and unfortunately today, has been discontinued. This collection, created to accommodate cymbals and sounds inspired by today's music and musicians also includes unique designs from the artisans in the Sabian Vault. Added Wright: "Many Sabian innovations don't fit into our other series, like AA and Hand Hammered, so Vault is where they will appear."

The Vault Artisan Ride was voted "#1 Outstanding Cymbal in 2005 by editors of the world's leading music magazines. In addition to that MIPA award, Sabian was voted "Most Innovative Cymbal Company" by the readers of Modern Drummer magazine, the world's most widely read percussion publication…

Individually hand crafted from Sabian's pure B20 'cast' bronze, the Vault Ride was available exclusively in Brilliant Finish and quality-protected by Sabian's Warranty…

At any volume from low to loud, the Vault Ride delivers the goods.  Given its rarity, finding one in outstanding condition like this is somewhat of an anomaly.  Grab this while it’s available!
