    i love the low ,dry pitch shimmering of this ride near the center .seems really controlable, yet it ''seems''' opens mediumly fast ....what strikes me is that i have an impression that this ride is quiet and doesn't project at all...

    the fact it's low pitch, the shimmering effect when it opens doesn't take over the stick defenition,which is pretty cool considering the ride seems to open very easily the second you walk toward the center coming from the bell. perfect for jazz.

    i love my HH RBDR exactly for the high -dry stick definition ,yet displaying a nice tone ,except the HH RBDR doesn't open as easy because it's a heavy weight . however, i really like your ride because all the aspects of this ride ''seems''' well balanced ,and i personally like better a darker-lower pitch when it comes to rides.

    Despite the recording, the ride is actually quite loud. It may not project nearly as much as an RBDR but I don't think it will have any trouble cutting through the mix. I plan to try a few covers using the ride soon just to see how well it records. Your description is very accurate as well. I've always been a fan of low-pitched cymbals which is why I am in love with the Artisan series. I've yet to play another Sabian that I like equally as much.

    That's a very nice sounding cymbal! I love how the bell is very distinct and defined but doesn't overpower the rest of the cymbal. It is extremely well balanced! Congrats on a super nice cymbal!

    I have had a few Artisans , currently own a 20” Artisan Light Ride that I sent back to get a Sound Control flange added and polished to a brilliant finish. I also have a 14” pair of Artisan Light hihats. I really like both.

    I had a long chat with Kevin Laskey of Sabian and requested they make Artisan thin crashes and a Raw Bell Artisan ride. He said some new Artisan models are being introduced at NAMM

    That's awesome! Can't wait to see what they're coming out with next.

    while at the store to buy some new skins, my fav vendor droves me in front of the sabian display to show me the AAX recording family's crashes....woaw. they sound great, very,very fast with a rich tone for such a high pitched cymbs.....my next target. i'm aiming at the 18 and 16

    Those are some awesome cymbals. I was fortunate enough to be able to test out a few. Can’t go wrong with the 16 and 18.
