Crescent 14" Hammertone Hats

Catalog Id H14H

Designed with veteran Jazz artist Jeff Hamilton - renowned for a very musical cymbal sound - 14" Crescent Hammertone Hats are a fully lathed, light-top/medium-bottom pairing. Open sounding, they provide musical sizzle with more wash than typical hats - a result of their higher profile and lighter weight. Foot sound is solid, without ever being heavy. While they are a versatile pairing, they're perfect for a jazz or big band set-up. Crafting a cymbal line for an uncompromising artist like Jeff Hamilton is not an easy process. Meticulous care was taken through each step of the manufacturing process and Jeff travelled to the SABIAN factory on multiple occasions to work with Vault craftsmen. The result is a flawless line of cymbals delivering uncompromising tone.

The 16" and 17" V-Crashes come to sparkling life with ease and could grace many settings where quick, bright punctuation is required. From the 18" model upwards things take a distinct turn for the louder, with each increase in diameter notching up the volume further. While the 18" model is pretty full-on, the 19" and 20" are staggeringly powerful crashes that beg for a big stage on which to be unleashed. Despite being capable of such huge volume, their sweetness makes them dangerously playable.
