    Comments about Sabian B8 Performance 2 Pack with Free 14 Inch Crash:

    Great quality and sound for an up and coming musician (daughter). She's a researcher and says these are the best in the business. Know they will provide many years of excellent service.

    Comments about Sabian B8 Performance 2 Pack with Free 14 Inch Crash:

    If you're considering these, you're either on a budget, just starting out, or like me, simply just can't justify spending a lot of money. Back in the day, it was easy, as Zildjian was the only game in town, and all their stuff was top-notch. Now there are so many different grades from different companies, it'll make your head spin. My last set was ZBT's, so here's my take. I'm an instrumentalist, not primarily a drummer, so I'm not so nit-picky as dedicated drummers. The 18" crash-ride is not as good as the ZBT. It's a bit tinny (ride), but acceptable. It's crash sound is just barely acceptable, with too much resonance. The bell borders on poor. The ZBT crash-ride, I felt, was the best part of the set, with a great ride, good bell and decent crash sound. The B8 14" crash is not very good, but my ZBT crash, which sounded only marginally better, only lasted a couple months before it cracked (several times). (I replaced it with a 14" bottom tier Paiste, which was terrible but didn't crack.) Which brings us to the Hi-hat, the reason I bought these over the Zildjians. The sound bite, which is very accurate, sounded way better than the ZHT's, so I went with it. The ZHT's sound like garbage can lids. Keep in mind, my ZHT hats were 13", my B8's are 14", that has a little to do with it, but overall, there's no comparison. The B8's are completely acceptable, the ZBT's were not. To me, playing rock, the Hi-hat is the most important piece. Ideally, I'd get this hat and the ZBT ride, but if you're counting pennies, that's not an option. The fact that I got this on sale, plus a rebate, made it no contest. Zildjians don't go on sale. I'm certainly happy with the Hi-hat, the rest is "good enough". If you have the opportunity to try them out in a store, that's your best bet. I am happy with them.
