Designed with veteran Jazz artist Jeff Hamilton – renowned for a very musical cymbal sound – 14” Crescent Hammertone Hats are a fully lathed, light-top/medium-bottom pairing. Open sounding, they provide musical sizzle with more wash than typical hats – a result of their higher profile and lighter weight. Foot sound is solid, without ever being heavy. While they are a versatile pairing, they’re perfect for a jazz or big band set-up. Crafting a cymbal line for an uncompromising artist like Jeff Hamilton is not an easy process. Meticulous care was taken through each step of the manufacturing process and Jeff travelled to the SABIAN factory on multiple occasions to work with Vault craftsmen.

Artisan Light Hats, MISURE 14" E 15"
Deep, dark and rich, 15″ Artisan Light Hats deliver complex tone with crisp yet soft stick sounds, for dynamic responses at all levels. With their high-density hand hammering design for musically-rich dark tone, Artisan Hats have always been synonymous with masterpiece. Artisan Light Hats now offer drummers all of that Artisan sound for low-volume situations. The key to this new design lies in pairing a thin-crash weight top with a medium-light weight bottom, resulting in lower-pitched tone than Sabian’s regular Artisan Hats. This combination also adds more complexity and more open sound, which in turn makes them a great choice for lower volume situations. However, drummers would be wrong to view these as exclusively intended for low volume. While not designed for loud and heavy bands, their complexity and rich, dark tone are ideal for virtually any other setting.
