Designed with veteran Jazz artist Jeff Hamilton − renowned for a very musical cymbal sound − 14” Crescent Hammertone Hats are a fully lathed, light-top/medium-bottom pairing. Open sounding, they provide musical sizzle with more wash than typical hats − a result of their higher profile and lighter weight. Foot sound is solid, without ever being heavy. While they are a versatile pairing, they’re perfect for a jazz or big band set-up. Crafting a cymbal line for an uncompromising artist like Jeff Hamilton is not an easy process. Meticulous care was taken through each step of the manufacturing process and Jeff travelled to the SABIAN factory on multiple occasions to work with Vault craftsmen. The result is a flawless line of cymbals delivering uncompromising tone.
