Sabian Artisan Elite Hi-Hats 16in
Skillfully handcrafted at every step using elements of cymbal-making even the most traditional cymbal companies have abandoned, 16” Artisan Elite Hats take Artisan deeper, darker, dirtier.
Tonally, drummers would not be far off the mark to consider Elite the “black sheep” of the Artisan family. Extensive multi-peen, high-density hammering is one of the factors that contribute to the Elite sound, resulting in tone that is lower-pitched and drier than other Artisan cymbals.
The unique lathing also results in a very solid foot and contributes to the added complexity of Elite hats. However, with their traditional Artisan cup and weight (Medium-light top over a Medium-heavy bottom) 16” Artisan Elite hats remain versatile and remain a great choice for more mainstream sounds.
Artisan Elite Hats also differ from other Artisan cymbals in appearance. With unlathed traces of surface revealing tin oxide and other imperfections, this is a pair of Hats that will appeal to players who like their cymbals not so shiny and blemish-free. It’s a look that’s very well-coordinated with the sound. SABIAN Artisan cymbals have always been masterpieces, pushing forward the art of cymbal making while delivering old-world sound. Artisan
Elite are the latest cymbals from Sabian to deliver on the Artisan promise.
