    The traditional coarse lathing technique applied by Vault craftsmen – some of whom have hand-lathed well over one million cymbals – is one of the contributing factors to the wide-open vintage tone of AA cymbals.
    • Sabian metallurgists combine measured amounts of copper, tin and silver to create centuries-old recipe for Sabian B20 bronze alloy
    • Molten-hot B20 bronze is very carefully hand-poured into pots, and once cooled, yields already-musical B20 bronze castings
    • B20 castings are meticulously hand-separated by weight and prepared to remove all impurities
    • Castings are fed through a large rolling oven up to a dozen times, involving a crew of 5 men who must work with choreographic precision under intense heat
    • During the entire rolling process, blanks must be rotated carefully to create a molecular weave for strength and durability
    • As castings become cymbal blanks, custom-built machine tools are expertly hand-operated to press bells into blanks, drill holes in the centre, cut them down to size and bump for approximate shape
    • Lathe craftsmen operate specially retrofitted lathes, thinning cymbal to desired gauge while adding crucial tonal grooves
    • Each cymbal must be trimmed to the exact size and the edges buffed for smoothness
    • Each individual cymbal is hand-tested and hand-weighed in the Vault by Vault sound specialists, a critical process
    • Each individual cymbal is placed on a shelf to age, allowing the frantically active molecules to slow down and stabilize
    • Each individual cymbal is once again hand-tested by two Vault specialists to ensure they fit the parameters of the series and model
