Like Finding A Long Lost Friend

This is by the far the best ride I've owned! After struggling with my ride sound and having spent $2K over the years trying to find the right one, I finally have! As a gigging musician who plays a LOT of different music styles, it's been a challenge finding a ride that could cut through a classic rock tune, but blend into a broadway ballad two songs later. The Sabian AAX Raw Bell Dry Ride does it.At low velocities it has a really nice wash quality seats it perfectly in the mix for ballads. As your velocity increases, very pleasant high overtones come out, lifting it to the front of the mix. The bell is to DIE FOR! Thick, creamy, in your face, but without the harshness so many rides have. I've been able to give the bell a pretty good beating with the side of my stick and never once had it be overbearing live or on a recording.This thing LOVES mallets! I've been able to get some of the most gorgeous cymbal swells out of the Sabian AAX Raw Bell Dry Ride. They start low and dark and swell into a brilliant splash of milky rainbows that make unicorns weep! I'm even considering buying another one to keep in storage, just in case they discontinue it… which Sabian would be fools to do. Don't think. Just buy.
