"Crescent Element by SABIAN represents the pinnacle of modern cymbal making. These unique cymbals offer amazing versatility and warm, rich attack, without sacrificing crisp stick definition and articulation. A Medium weight model, the 22” Crescent Element Distressed Ride is raw and unlathed on top for dry, articulate tone with a little shimmer and lots of control. Although it features the same distressed raw bell as the Element Ride, the ping is higher with shorter decay. Crafted from pure SABIAN B20 Bronze and fully hand hammered in the SABIAN Vault."
