The Hand Hammered HH Nova is like that one-of-a-kind cymbal you wish you could find in a dusty rack at the back of a music or pawn shop. It certainly delivers extremes – as in, extremely low and extremely dry. So if you like being out on the edge musically, this may be the Ride for you. The sound is slightly on the dark side with a solid resonance.
B20 bronze alloy delivers a complex, versatile shimmer
Made from 80% copper to 20% tin, and often containing traces of silver, B20 bronze alloy gives you an ultra-wide frequency range that can be bright, dark, or anything in between. A mainstay in all types of music, from jazz to rock and beyond, B20 is responsible for the Sabian HH series's remarkably complex, versatile tone.
Serious drummers rely on Sabian
With Sabian cymbals, you're in good company. Located in the small eastern Canadian village of Meductic, New Brunswick, Sabian has been supplying the shimmer on the top end of countless hit records for three decades. First-call drummers such as Terry Bozzio, Dave Weckl, Neil Peart, and Mike Portnoy rely on Sabian cymbals for the sizzle atop their kits - and you can, too.
