Re: Sabian Cymbals
I Love My Sabians,I've got 2 that are 24 years old,a 15" and 16" AA thin crash(es),and their sound is still Fantastic.My main hats are the AAX X-celeraters,All my other pies are AA's and at least 15 years old,and all still sound awesome.IMHO Sabian is the best qualities of Paiste(which I used prior to switching full time to Sabian)and Zildjian put together.Sabians are brighter than Zild's as a whole.FYI-Sabian was started up by a Zildjian,Robert I think his first name was.He and his brother couldn't see eye to eye anymore,so he left the company.He had to agree to not use any of Zildjians formulas etc.,so he and his new people had to get creative so as not to violate the agreement.Also Sabian is an acronym..SA-sally,BI-billy,AN-andy,he and his wife came up with the name from the letters in their childrens names.
