Sabian Announce HH Vanguard

Sabian has just announced the addition of Vanguard cymbals to its Remastered HH line. Designed to provide exceptional versatility and feel, each model in the HH Vanguard family has no model designation, and have a more distinct ''vintage'' vibe.

Like all HH cymbals, Vanguard models are fully hand hammered. But there are key differences. Vanguard cymbals employ pinpoint lathing, rather than traditional lathing. Also, Vanguard cymbals are thinner and lighter, with smaller bells and extended profiles overall. The result is said to be a clean, woody stick definition, providing exceptional articulation for such light cymbals.

Drummers who prefer dark cymbals with fast responses will love HH Vanguard cymbals, especially fans of the HHX Evolution line. They are said to provide an elegant, crystalline complexity of sound that is always musical. The 16” or 18” have more immediate responses, and the 20”, 21” and 22” have less overall wash.

The 14” Vanguard Hats are completely raw on the bottoms, and lathed only on the outer 2” area of the tops, lined the rest of the way to the cup. They are said to provide a complex tone that blends exceedingly well, while offering enough power for mainstream sounds.

One of the most popular series from the Crescent cymbals catalog, Vanguard is a perfect fit for Sabian’s flagship hand-hammered line.
