Zildjian has done custom work for me, but denied or ignored some of my other requests.
    It generally depends on what is ordered and the hand hammered cymbals generally take a little longer.

    that's a pretty good turnaround. I love them too. I've played Sabian cymbals my entire drumming career and have never been disappointed.

    Bump for a slight update. I recently sold the Artisan Prototype ride Sabian made for me due to a continuous quest to find a different sound for a ride cymbal. The latest replacement is below

    Merry Christmas!

    Thanks TM! To answer the question, the Artisan Elite series is a limited range of dry, low-pitched rides and hi-hats. At the present time, you can only get 20 and 22 inch rides and 14 and 16 inch hats. I'm not sure if they're planning on expanding the line to add crashes or any effects cymbals. These cymbals incorporate some of the dry, dark qualities similar to the Big & Ugly line. Specifically, the Artisan Elite rides have wide, low-profile bells, which produce rich, deep tones that are well-integrated within the overall cymbal sound. The stick sound is deep and woody, and the sustain is dark but dry. They produce a full, breathy crash with a fairly muted sustain which is very nice. The 22" ride has a fundamentally lower pitch than the 20" version as well as a bit more wash making it more versatile. I've always preferred a 22" ride and this one certainly does not disappoint. I'd venture to say that it's the most musical sounding Artisan cymbal I own and I've pretty much got one of everything in the Artisan series lol.

    I'll try an grab an audio clip this weekend and post it here as an update.
