The Sabian HHX Legacy Heavy Ride Cymbal's stick articulation remains semi-dry and crisp over a cushion of warm tone, while the large bell offers a brighter contrast.

Designed for drumming legend Dave Weckl, the Legacy heavy ride cymbal features a low-profile design and dual hammering -- traditional hand hammering with jumbo-sized HHX 'Tone Projector' over hammering -- creating a sound that is warm, dark, and very deep. Stick articulation is semi-dry and crisp over this cushion of warm tone. The large lathed but non-hammered bell offers a brighter contrast while blending with the overall sound. When played, the Legacy Heavy Ride responds with the stick articulation of a heavy model, but with the tonal response of a medium.

"The 'Heavy' name refers to this model being the heaviest within the Legacy range" said Sabian master product specialist Mark Love. "And though it has the crisp, clean stick articulation of a heavier cymbal, the weight of this model is in the medium range, so it is much more playable and musical than the name might suggest. As for the sound, Dave likes a clean, articulated stick response over a warm cushion of tone. Because his definition of darker is much deeper than most, designing that sound - crisp articulation over a low, deep and dark tonality - was extremely difficult. Extensive design work was necessary to make it happen, and our craftsmen employ various unique techniques in the process."

Concluded Weckl: "My time in the Vault revealed just how difficult it is to create many of the Legacy models. Between the idea and the actual cymbal there is an unbelievable amount of work. Like me, Mark Love and his team want to get the sounds as perfect as possible. Not only have they done an amazing job of doing this, their ability to be so consistent in making each cymbal sound and perform the way it should really impresses me."
