Sabian - Carmine Appice's 22" Artisan Medium Ride, Autographed (#20)

From the Carmine Appice Collection at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault in Seattle, WA. 

It’s impossible to adequately describe Carmine’s massive impact on the drum world. He redefined rock drumming with his innovative playing with Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Beck Bogart and Appice, Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osborne, Edgar Winter, Ted Nugent and more. He literally “wrote the book” on rock drumming with his “Realistic Rock” drum method, the best selling rock drum book of all time. He introduced the rock drum world to China cymbals and gongs that are now commonplace on the modern drum set. Carmine is without a doubt, one of the most influential and innovative drummers of our time.

We've just acquired a huge collection of drum gear directly from Carmine Appice. This is just one piece of the collection currently available here at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault.

From our Carmine Appice Drum and Cymbal Collection. A spectacular 22" Medium Ride cymbal from Sabian's much heralded Artisan line. Near new condition. Nice, clear stick definition, great crash sound and cuts through in any style of music. Signed and lightly used by Carmine Appice. A small piece of gaffer tape has been affixed to the bottom of the cymbal.

Includes COA signed by Carmine Appice.

Product Overview
Originally part of the Vault family, the Artisan series is Sabian's rendition of nuanced, tonally complex vintage cymbals produced in the early and mid Twentieth Century. These cymbals are produced with a "Masterpiece" finish created from fire-refined B20 bronze, allowing traces of silver to remain in the alloy and producing a sedate brilliance to the final product.

The Medium Ride is the heaviest cymbal in the Artisan series and produces a defined, bright response and minimal wash.

Years of production: 2008-present

Composition: Sabian B20 Alloy (80% bronze, 20% copper, traces of silver)

Notable players: Billy Cobham, Jojo Mayer, Tony Royster Jr.
