HISTORY IS REMADE AT SABIAN!
It is a conversation drummers have been having for 50 years:
What was the ride cymbal on Chick Corea’s 1967 landmark album “Now He Sings, Now He Sobs”played so masterfully by the great Roy Haynes?
SABIAN discovered the original cymbal was given to jazz great Chick Corea and is still in his possession.
Such a rare treasure to have survived 50 long years. Chick so graciously loaned us the original cymbal to study.
We’re proud to announce that drummers will have the opportunity to own a piece of that legacy.
Mark Love, our Master Product Specialist had one goal in mind:
Preserve the feel, sound,and integrity of this legendary instrument:“We have replicated a lot of vintage cymbals in our Custom Shop over the years.
We know what happens to a cymbal over 50 years of use and the transformation can be dramatic.We record all the obvious visual specs, the way an original is constructed, and then decide whether to tune the cymbal as it sounded when it was brand new or as it sounds today, after 5 decades of use.
We aim for the sweet spot shortly after the cymbal is broken in so the replicas are slightly higher pitched and contain some of the original sparkle that the cymbal has lost over time that we can hear on Chick’s album.”
This Sabian Cymbal is 100% Proudly Candian Made!
