New Artisan Crash Expands SABIAN Vault Collection

The Latest Example of Traditional Craftsmanship Enhanced With a Touch of Innovation

MEDUCTIC, Canada (Jan. 12, 2009) – SABIAN has added a crash model to
their Vault Artisan range of premium, professional cymbals. The Artisan Crash,
a thin/extra-thin model in 16- and 18-inch sizes, was designed in the SABIAN
Vault to produce dark, traditional tone enhanced with the benefit of modern
projection. Featuring high-density hand hammering by SABIAN master artisans and
a touch of innovation, the Artisan Crash offers traditional tonal darkness and
complexity. This cymbal will be on display at the 2009 NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif.,
January 15 – 18, 2009 at the SABIAN booth, number 3254."Artisan
crashes have been the single most requested SABIAN model since the introduction
of the Artisan Ride," noted SABIAN Product Specialist David Williams. "The
Artisan Ride reminded drummers of the real value of traditional hand hammered
cymbal craftsmanship. As a result we had so many requests for similar hats and
crashes that we researched early cymbal designs then designed what we feel is a
better traditional crash. This Artisan model has that soft, warm, deeply
musical tone drummers have been asking for."

crafted from SABIAN B20 bronze, the Artisan Crash features high-density hand
hammering for maximum tonal complexity. This is augmented with jumbo-peen
dimpling to increase tonal quality and projection. All Artisan models are
quality-protected by the SABIAN Two-Year Warranty.
