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!
Heard DeJohnette playing this cymbal with Hudson last night at Ardmore Music Hall. This is a great sounding cymbal with a wide range ride and light crash sounds. Great stick articulation, with a glass-like shimmer that cut through the aggressive volume of Scofield, Medeski and Grenadier. Sounds like it is worth every penny!
