SABIAN announces The Soul Side ride cymbal

To celebrate Tower of Power’s 50th anniversary, and the release of their 16th studio album “The Soul Side of Town Vol. 1”, SABIAN has announced a limited edition 21″ HH model named “The Soul Side” Ride. Developed with David Garibaldi for the Tower of Power sound (the company says think classics such as “What is Hip?”, “Soul Vaccination”, “Squib Cakes”, Oakland Stroke and so many more) only 250 of The Soul Side Ride will be available for purchase.

A double-hammered HH ride, “The Soul Side” also includes proprietary SABIAN manufacturing techniques for added heat, sustain and articulation. The buffed raw top and fully- lathed bottom are a tip of the hat to the original David Garibaldi 22″ Jam Master Ride, originally released by SABIAN in 1998, the maker says.

‘The Soul Side Ride provides the perfect amount of brittle in the high end, a transparent wash, with a touch of heat in its tone – but never loses tip articulation. In Garibaldi’s set-up, it blends beautifully between his tight, bright 14″ Jam Master Hats and his HHX X-Treme Crashes’.
