Sabian Jack DeJohnette Prototype HHX 22" Shimmering '75' Ride (2612g)
This is a prototype of the Shimmering "75" Ride that Sabian released to commemorate Jack DeJohnette's 75th birthday. That cymbal was limited to 75 pieces, so this one must be rare indeed! This is the second prototype that we've had, and this one was hand picked for us by Sabian's Mark Love. The first prototype was lighter at 2498g, while this one is closer to the weight of the production models (our production model weighed 2620g).
Here's what Sabian said about the limited edition:
"To commemorate Jazz legend Jack DeJohnette's 75th birthday, SABIAN is proud to announce a limited edition HHX Shimmering '75' Ride. Triple-hammered - with a heavily hammered bell - and buffed for shimmer and glassiness, the Shimmering '75' was designed to Jack's exacting specification for a controlled, musical ride, with great warmth and ample shimmer. Medium in weight, the tone is rich, the stick is always articulate, and the bell is solid without ever being piercing. We can't think of a better way to celebrate this important musical milestone!"
See and hear this cymbal in our Video Vault (TM) and buy with confidence!
