Sabian SR2 is a new concept in cymbals.
These cymbals are used, returned, or refurbished cymbals that Sabian receives through inventory swaps, trades, exchanges. They are given their own unique surface look and logo and consist mainly of high-quality pre-played Sabian cymbals, including those played by major Sabian artists, returned from consignments, reviewed in magazines, displayed at trade shows, or even cymbals that came through the production process with slight blemishes that ultimately disappear with the refinishing process.
Each cymbal must meet specific sound requirements before being considered for the SR2 line. Once those requirements are met, each cymbal is cleaned and then the SR2 finish is applied.
Sabian SR2 cymbals have their own logo and a unique look, in order to clearly distinguish them from their first-run cymbal lines. Sabian believes it is very important for you to know exactly what you're getting when you buy an SR2, so these cymbals have their own special identity to clearly identify them as reconditioned cymbals.
All of the cymbals are cast B20 product, but there is no differentiation by series at all, so this thin crash cymbal could have started as an AA, AAX, HH, HHX, or Vault. The Sabian SR2s are only designated by size and weight.
The SR2 14" Thin Crash and all cymbals within the Sabian SR2 series are priced based on size only, rather than on the series they were before reconditioning. They are identified only by size, and one of 3 weight categories. This thin crash cymbal is available to you at significantly less than a brand new Sabian would cost, and will not be covered by any warranty through Sabian.
