Based on an idea from jazz giant Jack DeJohnette, this Sabian 21" Vault 3-Point Ride Cymbal offers dark, smoky tone with varying sound nuances across three distinct playing surfaces. An unlathed 'control' ring around the center of this hand-hammered cymbal produces tight, glassy sounds while the lathed area between the ring and the bell deliver more 'point.' The area between the ring and the edge produces a fuller, more open response. Topped by a mini bell, this medium-thin cymbal is highly playable and versatile, with definite stick response and clarity coupled with a variety of dark and dirty sounds—all of which is enhanced by jumbo-peen hammering on its underside.
Jack DeJohnette, whose previous collaborations with Sabian include the original Jack DeJohnette Signature and Vault Encore cymbals had this to say about it: "My jazz roots continue to dictate the basis of my sounds, but my musical directions are constantly changing, so it's a matter of holding on to those past sounds that mean the most to me, while riding a cymbal that means most to the music I'm playing today. It's a challenge, but Sabian can take what I'm asking for and design cymbals that combine vintage and modern."
Jack DeJohnette is the perfect example of the ever-evolving drummer. His direction is modern and innovative, but he draws from traditional roots. This Vault 3-Point ride cymbal embodies Jack's ability to dig deep into his history for the raw concept, but then shape that vision into one that frees him up to play a wide range of jazz and world music.
The Sabian Vault 3-Point Ride is hand crafted and hammered from premium Sabian B20 bronze, and is quality protected by the Sabian 2-Year Warranty.
