NAMM 2010: Sabian announce Vault 3 Point Ride Cymbal
Based on an idea from jazz giant Jack DeJohnette, the new SABIAN 21” Vault 3-Point Ride offers dark, smokey tone with varying sound nuances across three distinct playing surfaces. An unlathed ‘control’ ring around the center of this hand hammered cymbal produces tight, glassy sounds while the lathed area between the ring and the bell deliver more ‘point’, with the area from the ring out to the edge producing a fuller, more open response. Topped by a mini bell, this medium-thin model is highly playable and versatile, with definite stick response and clarity coupled with a variety of dark and dirty sounds enhanced by jumbo-peen hammering on its underside. The cymbals will be on display at the 2010 NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif., January 14 – 17, 2010 at the SABIAN booth, number 3254.
Commented DeJohnette, whose collaborations with SABIAN include the original Jack DeJohnette Signature and Vault Encore models, “My jazz roots continue to dictate the basis of my sounds, but my musical directions are constantly changing, so it’s a matter of holding on to those past sounds that mean the most to me, while riding a cymbal that means most to the music I’m playing today. It’s a challenge, but SABIAN can take what I’m asking for and design cymbals that combine vintage and modern… and come up with the Vault 3-Point Ride.”
Added SABIAN Master Product Specialist Mark Love: “Jack DeJohnette is the perfect example of the ever-evolving drummer. Like SABIAN, his direction is modern and innovative, but he draws from traditional roots. This Vault 3-Point Ride is a great example of Jack’s ability to dig deep into his history for the raw concept, but then shape that vision into one that frees him up to play a wide range of jazz and world music.”
“Their ability to design sound is what makes SABIAN so special,” said DeJohnette. Available in Natural or optional Brilliant Finish, the Vault 3-Point Ride is hand crafted and hammered from premium SABIAN B20 bronze, and is quality protected by the SABIAN Two-Year Warranty. Cymbal Facts
