From the Price Guide

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 hi-hats are produced with a medium top cymbal and heavy bottom cymbal pairing to produced a defined response. The hats' character is dark, smoky and atmospheric.

This price reflects the bottom hat.

Years of production: 2008-present

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

Notable players: Billy Cobham, Chad Smith, Tony Royster Jr.
