FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 15th, 2021
SABIAN Introduces the
Limited Edition 21″ Dave Weckl Serenity Ride
Meductic, NB: SABIAN Ltd announce an offering of 250 Limited Edition Serenity Flat Ride Cymbals, a collaboration between world renowned musician, Dave Weckl, and the Master Artisans at SABIAN. Developed over three years SABIAN believes it is the most refined flat ride cymbal ever produced.
With a perfect balance of complex wash and stick tip articulation from a crashable flat ride, the tone is calming and serene. It was tour-tested by Dave while playing with Chick Corea’s Akoustic Band and has already proven to be a star in the studio on his sessions.
The Serenity Ride is handcrafted with multiple hammers – HH and HHX – and the pinpoint tonal grooves are lathed, by hand, across the surface providing an immediate response and buttery feel – a direct result from SABIAN’S decades of Artisanal expertise.
To ensure this instrument makes a highly unique and personal musical statement, each one is stamped with its number of edition and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity personally signed by Dave Weckl.
“This is a proud moment to add the Serenity Ride to our lineage of Limited Edition models that have included special cymbals designed with legendary drummers Jack DeJohnette, David Garibaldi, Todd Sucherman and the late Maestro Chick Corea,” says Chris Stankee, Global Director of Artist Relations at SABIAN. “Dave developed this cymbal while on tour with Chick who had to have one for himself!”
Features and benefits include:
- Always ‘there’ stick sound
- Crashable with short sustain
- Controllable wash with beautiful shimmering sound
- Blend of SABIAN’s Legacy and Artisan cymbal technology
