Sabian 18" SR2 Medium Crash Cymbal Pair - Product Information

Sabian SR2 18″ Medium Crash Cymbals are a great choice for any budget minded program. Hand matched by the cymbal experts at Sabian. These are factory reconditioned, cast cymbals, you might not know whether they were AA, HH, HHX, etc, but they will always sound better then cheaper made brass or sheet metal cymbals in the same price range.

All SR2 cymbals are made from SABIAN's higher end cast bronze AA, AAX, HH, HHX and Vault series B20 cymbals. The cymbals are not damaged, but once used for artist clinics, trade upgrades, or have slight surface blemishes or scratches. They are then assessed at the factory, and once it's ascertained that the cymbal is still compliant with the company's high standard, the cymbal then goes through the SR2 process. This, effectively, removes the cymbals prior outer finish along with any scratches, blemishes or other surface defects.

I bought a pair of these in 19 inches at the advice of Steve Weiss salesman, I was seeking a budget alternative to the Sabian 19 inch Viennese. They are lovely sounding, meet my needs and may, in fact, have been derived from the cymbals I coveted. The sound is high and light and brilliant, the attack is immediate, the sustain is wonderful. I'm very happy with them and am enjoying the $500 jangling in my pocket. Only the irregularity of the final surface, which prevents unscrupulous dealers from selling them as new, prevents me from giving them a 5 star rating. It's not so bad as to cut you, but it's annoying. What I can't understand is how this makes sense for Sabian. They take back an $800 pair of cymbals, put more work into it, and sell it for $300. Huh?

Bought these to donate to my son's high school band. The finish is a bit rough due to the re-lathing, but the reconditioning didn't seem to significantly affect the sound. They have a rich deep tone with a nice sustain that fades away smoothly. The pair is nicely balanced and easily controlled to produce a bright crash or even a quiet sizzle. Well worth the investment. My only regret is that I didn't spring for some good straps.
