When the glorious day comes to be able to afford a new ride I'm leaning towards Sabian HH. A ride that is warm and dark and can do almost anything . Good crash capability is a plus too. All opinions are welcome!
Used to have an HH Classic Medium. Superb crash and bell, but I would say that it wasn't dark enough for me. The Sabian website soundfile has it pretty accurately.When the glorious day comes to be able to afford a new ride I'm leaning towards Sabian HH.

All HH's are slightly different - even when comparing the same model.
The best one is one that youll HAVE to go listen to with your own ears.
I have an HH 21" Raw Bell Dry Ride in brilliant finish and it's just unbelievable. I'm a hard rock and metal drummer so the bigger size and fulller bell appealed more to me, but everyone who has heard it has always commented on it. My friend is a funk/groove drummer who can't get into rock drumming at all, but he's a big fan of it's sound. I would seriously give it a listen cause it's a sweet sweey cymbal.
The HH sound control ride is nice. Interesting flat flanged edge.
AudioTech, I really like how you've been acquiring sets of various cymbal lines. I want to start doing this too and branch out from my Zildjians. I have a great set of As (about 8 of them) and a nice set of K Customs.
Without hijacking this thread too much, which different cymbal lines do you currently have?
