To celebrate Tower of Power’s 50th anniversary, and the release of their 16th studio album “The Soul Side of Town Vol. 1”, SABIAN has just announced a limited edition 21” HH model named “The Soul Side” Ride. Developed with David Garibaldi for that very special Tower of Power sound − think classics such as “What is Hip?”, “Soul Vaccination”, “Squib Cakes”, Oakland Stroke and so many more − only 250 of The Soul Side Ride will be available for purchase.
A double-hammered HH ride, “The Soul Side” also includes innovative proprietary SABIAN manufacturing techniques for added heat, sustain and articulation. The buffed raw top and fully- lathed bottom are a tip of the hat to the original David Garibaldi 22” Jam Master Ride, originally released by SABIAN in 1998.
The Soul Side Ride provides the perfect amount of brittle in the high end, a transparent wash, with a touch of heat in its tone – but never loses tip articulation. In Garibaldi’s set-up, it blends beautifully between his tight, bright 14” Jam Master Hats and his HHX X-Treme Crashes.
Only 250 of these special ride cymbals will ever be produced – if this is the sound you want, don’t miss out!
