The 22" HHX Legacy Heavy Ride. This hand hammered cymbal means your stick articulation remains semi-dry and crisp over a cushion of warm tone.
Here's what Sabian have to say about this snare
Designed for drumming legend Dave Weckl, the Legacy heavy ride cymbal features a low-profile design and dual hammering -- traditional hand hammering with jumbo-sized HHX 'Tone Projector' over hammering -- creating a sound that is warm, dark, and very deep. Stick articulation is semi-dry and crisp over this cushion of warm tone. The large lathed but non-hammered bell offers a brighter contrast while blending with the overall sound. When played, the Legacy Heavy Ride responds with the stick articulation of a heavy model, but with the tonal response of a medium.
"The 'Heavy' name refers to this model being the heaviest within the Legacy range" said Sabian master product specialist Mark Love. "And though it has the crisp, clean stick articulation of a heavier cymbal, the weight of this model is in the medium range, so it is much more playable and musical than the name might suggest. As for the sound, Dave likes a clean, articulated stick response over a warm cushion of tone. Because his definition of darker is much deeper than most, designing that sound - crisp articulation over a low, deep and dark tonality - was extremely difficult. Extensive design work was necessary to make it happen, and our craftsmen employ various unique techniques in the process."
