abian’s SR2 line of cymbals are uniquely marketed as a “treasure hunt”. These cymbals have come back to the Sabian factory after leading short lives being played by endorsed artists, being displayed at trade shows, or being restocked for any number of reasons. The bottom line is that these cymbals have been used, but very lightly – no damage was inflicted to the instrument. Cymbals from the AA, AAX, HH, HHX, and Vault series are all brought to the same place, where they become SR2 cymbals.
Thin cymbals are washy, more responsive, and have deeper overall tones.
