Robert Zildjian formed Sabian in 1981 after a falling out with his brother Armand Zildjian. Using years of experience he had developed from his past career, Sabian were always going to go on to become one the leading cymbal manufacturers in the world. These days they can list a whole host of big name artists who play their cymbals. Perhaps most notably the likes of Jojo Mayer and Chad Smith.
Sabian introduced the Hand Hammered (HH) range in 1982, these were the cymbals that made drummers all over the world fall in love with Sabian. This marked a peak in craftsmanship for cymbal making, giving each cymbal a complex and unique sound through the method of repeatedly hammering each cymbal hundreds of times by hand. 35 years on, Sabian introduced the exciting new range of HH Remastered cymbals, treating them to a well deserved makeover. Sabian promises that with even more hammering, the profile of each individual cymbal has been carefully thought out and worked for the cymbal to more sonically effective and musically responsive. We can now expect a single pair of 14" hi-hats to be hammered up to 2000 times, and a 24" ride cymbal up to a massive 4000 times!
Visually, the HH remastered series have a 'vintage' style; this is due to the beautifully lathed, un-polished, natural bronze finish that most HH cymbals possess, as well as the extensive hammer marks that can be seen on every cymbal from bell to edge. This treatment gives every cymbal in the HH range a dark, classic sound. However, as well as the rich and traditional tones you would expect from handcrafted cymbals like this, the remastered HH series possess a modern brightness to them, which equips them with more more attack, making Sabian HH a much more versatile cymbal range than ever before.
