Sabian Vault Hi-Hat Cymbals
Sabian Vault Hi-Hat Cymbals are designed to deliver on the Vault promise to slice through the music. This pairing features a medium top and heavy bottom with pinpoint lathing. The sound is bright and crisp, with the top cymbal light enough to be sensitive, yet capable of creating a synergy with the bottom cymbal that boosts overall response with solid sticking and full, glassy responses at higher volumes. This design also promotes a crisper, cleaner pedal response . . . a very strong 'chick' sound.
Commented Sabian product specialist David Williams: "Though they are extremely versatile, Vault Hats have a very definite and unique personality. This is because they maximize the silver in their sound. It is this bright 'tssssss' response - like cymbal sibilance - that ensures their crisp clarity. At lower volumes they are surprisingly responsive and defined, yet sensitive and musical. At higher volumes the top and bottom are a powerful combination that cuts with the sort of clarity the Vault Crash is renowned for."
Vault Hats join the Vault Crash, Vault Ride, and MIPA award-winning Artisan Ride - voted "Outstanding Cymbal - 2005" by editors of the world's leading music publications - in the Vault Collection, a collection created for uniquely innovative cymbals and sounds created by the Sabian Vault Team. Added Williams: "Vault is all about better cymbal design. This can range from the Artisan Ride, which is a radical improvement of traditional concepts, to modern concepts like the Vault Hats."
Sabian craftsmen create Vault cymbals using Sabian's secret-process B20 'cast' bronze and an innovative design process that maximizes the effectiveness of the silver in this highly durable and musical metal. Vault Hats are quality-protected by the Sabian one-year warranty.
