Bozzio-Inspired Micro-Sized Hi-Hats for Drummers and Percussionists
MEDUCTIC, Canada (Jan. 12, 2009) – The latest addition to the SABIAN
Vault Collection of cymbals and sounds is Radia Nano Hats. Available in 7-inch
and 9-inch pairings, Nano Hats consist of a medium-weight top and flat, heavy
bottom. They are heavily hand hammered, combine alternating raw and etched
surfaces on both sides of the two cymbals and feature a raw bell, all of which
adds up to a fast, punchy, definite sound. Their extremely tight and articulate
response when played as a main hat ensures crisp clarity for even the fastest
strokes and busiest patterns, while their small size and dry, crisp response
makes them ideal for X-hat applications. The Vault Radia Nano hats will be on
display at the 2009 NAMM Show in Anaheim,
Calif., January 15 – 18, 2009 at
the SABIAN booth, number 3254.
"As the Nano Hats and the
rest of my Radia cymbals confirm, Mark Love
and the SABIAN Vault Team have this incredible ability to design sound into
metal," noted Bozzio.
"Vault Nano Hats are a
great example of Terry Bozzio’s ongoing search for new and different sounds,"
noted SABIAN Master Product Specialist Mark Love. "They are also another
indication of SABIAN’s desire to design and develop new cymbals and sounds so
players have more meaningful options to choose from."
