On a side note.
I removed the logos on the 22" with nail polish remover. They came off like eraseable marker on a white board.
So easy.
Wonder if this is a new ink that comes off so easy?

Beautiful sounds!

Nice perspective in the video, too. I think I never saw your hands that well.

Thanks.
Now that I see it..I might have an unconscious "Bill Stewart " thing going on with these cymbals.
I totally change my grip with my scdr..its much more loose and relaxed..I let the cymbal do the work.

Ill make a paiste video sometime
I love these Sabians

Really surprised and loving them.

They look like the older HH like this picture, not the HHX. I've got the 22, 20. 18, 16, 14hh Manhattans from that series and love em for low volume playing.

Are these new or just new to you? What inspired you to get them?
Yes. New to me...although I have owned manhattans before


Just wanted something "anti-paiste" for when the mood struck. Something more main stream but the weights on these intrigued me. And the price was right was REALLY nice on all three.

The 20" is the older version like above. The 22 and 13s say HHX on the them (well said it before I took logos off.)

The 22" was MINT , brand new. THe 13" are used and the logos HHX is there but barely readable...

My 20" Manhattan was love at first tap.
Only 1615 grams and 2 rivets.
Responds to the slightest touch wonderfully! Just breathing on it will activate the rivets.
A forever keeper.

I really dig the 20", but I have a thing for riveted, sub-22" cymbals.

The cymbals work really well together as a set.

I like mine without any rivets...but maybe a 3 rivet cluster.
Then no rivets in my 20"

Choices choices

The Manhattans are fantastic cymbals! I use them for jazz gigs AND rock gigs. I love this series. Great work by Sabian. I, too, have received compliments on my Manhattan cymbal sounds. I usually add a little tape to the ride to deaden it just a little more.

If you want rivets, Sabian will add it to your cymbal for $40:

My trigger finger is looking for my drill........I see a rivet in my Manhattan's future!
(Not a fan of the clusters - just one or maybe two.....)
