    HH cymbals are traditionally hand-hammered into shape and sound by Sabian craftsmen. Each cymbal receives between 2,000 and 4,000 hammer blows, resulting in increased musicality, tonal complexity and unmatched sonic texture.
    • Sabian metallurgists combine measured amounts of copper, tin and silver to create a 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 down to size and bump for approximate shape
    • Hand-hammering artisans shape and form each cymbal with 2,000 to 4,000 precision-placed hammer blows, adding musicality, complexity, and dark tone
    • Lathe craftsmen operate specially retrofitted lathes, thinning the cymbal to the desired gauge while adding crucial tonal grooves
    • Cymbal must be trimmed to an 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 stabilise
    • Each individual cymbal is once again hand-tested by two Vault specialists to ensure they fit the parameters of the series and model
