    Default Sabian XSR Cymbals

    Anyone here play them? I found these and want to upgrade from my B8X pack, but want to make sure it's worth the upgrade?

    I can't comment on the XSR range as I've never actually heard them in person, but in the UK the price of that pack is similar to the Zildjian A391 set (21" Sweet Ride, 14" New Beats, and 16 and 18" medium thin crashes.

    I think It would be a noticeable upgrade for crashes. Not quite as noticeable on the ride. As far as the hats, I actually like the more cutting sound of B8's.

    Play the SONG......not the DRUMS!!!

    Pro level sounding cast cymbals at a more moderate price point.
    I've played them and not a thing bad I can say about them.
    There are limited sizes and weights for that line of cymbals,but that's about it.

    the XSR are amazing cymbals! They are the newest version of the XS20 which I play.
    I would love to upgrade to the XSR but I just don't do brilliant finish cymbals which is a personal choice.
    These would be a great upgrade!

    Go with Paiste 900S...nobody does it better with B8 than Paiste...moderately priced, sound sooooo sweet

    I don't care for Paiste cymbals. I do know the B8X line from Sabian has surprised me, and there have been multiple times where I played gigs and people thought I had a higher grade cymbal. At the end of the day it is all personal preference.
