When the SABIAN Vault team got together with Dave Weckl to develop the Evolution line in 2002, the perfectionist Weckl would settle for no less than an extra-thin crash with buttery feel and glassy attack. Sabian craftsmen delivered, and the Evolution crash remains the standard for crash cymbals to this day.
In 2017, SABIAN adds two popular sizes to the Evolution line, a 19” Crash and a 21” Ride, a move prompted by the ongoing demand from drummers for larger cymbals.
The new 19” Crash is a warm, explosive model, delivering fast, shimmering response for increased projection and cut. It maintains the bite and penetration of high-end attack with the warmth of a darker undertone.
The 21” Ride combines crisp attack and warm undertones for a shimmering Ride cymbal with excellent Crash capability. There is notable separation between the bright high end and the warm low end, for a high-fidelity sound that is both warm and cool.
Hand crafted from premium SABIAN B20 bronze, the most durable and musical metal for cymbals, new HHX Evolution models are protected by a SABIAN two-year warranty.
