B8 review

By Jennifer DeSilva

from Georgia

Overall the tone is very good on the ride, the crashes (16" & 18") have great sustained sound and the hat is crisp. This is a very soild initial upgrade on a starter set. Very happy with this purchase.
Really liked the bonus 18" crash.
After just a month of fairly hard use they actually seem to sound better than when first played. No cracking at the stem holes. So far so good.
The 18" crash made the cost very good for an initial upgrade on the cymbals that came with my starter set of drums.


Sabian B8

By Josh R. K.

from Hedgesville, W.Va

These cymbals are amazing! I've had them for over two years now (Which is how long I've been a drummer) and they're still going! Granted , the cymbals are starting to shpow their wear and tear (my 16" has a crack in it), but other than some stick b;lemishes appearing on the surface these cymbals are awesome!Good quality, good sound, good value, and good all around product!

Great entry level cymbals!

By JoeyT

Ask me a question

I bought this cymbal pack a little over a month ago, when i got them, I instantly recognized sabian quality. Please keep in mind that they are thin crashes, so don't abuse them, they don't need to be hit hard. They should last years if you hit them right, I've had to adjust but It will be worth it. I only have 1 straight stand and a hihat stand right now, but im getting 2 boom stands soon. I'll break the review into 4 parts - 16" Thin Crash, 18" Thin Crash, 20" Medium Ride, and 14" Hats.

16" Thin Crash: 9/10. This is my favorite crash in the pack, very bright and sounds fantastic, it is moderately touchy, you don't need to hit it too hard to get the maximum effect from it.

18" Thin Crash: 6/10. This is my least favorite cymbal in the pack. It sounds too dark for my likings, much more like a crash/ride than a crash. It still sounds and feels OK and at least it was free. This one is also touchy, don't abuse it.

20" Ride: 10/10. I love this cymbal. so much better than the ZBT, it's very bright, very loud, its bell sounds fantastic, and it has a long overtone which I like. I highly recommend this ride. dont be afraid to crash it, it's very sturdy and well built. Don't expect it to sound like an AAX based off this review, it sounds amazing, for its price. 20" aax stage ride is still my favorite

14" Hats: 9.5/10. These Hats are very crisp and clean. The chk sounds great and the hats are nice and loud. It sounds pretty good sizzling, but not great.

Overall: 9/10. I'm not going to lie. B8's are SO much better than ZBT's. a great, long lasting, entry/intermediate level cymbal pack. If you're tight on cash, and need some decent cymbals, these are the way to go. If you have a few extra hundred bucks though, i'd definitely check out the Sabian AAX's, those are my favorites

It's Amzaing No Doubt awesome everything for a resinable price!



i love these so much its crazy. everybody i play with falls in love with the 14 inch crash. the only problem is that i play ever day at leaast an hour so they do get worn. the 16 inch crash cracked after 7 months but still a great cymbal. i loved it so much i cut it and continued to play it. the ride rings a little long but its alright


Love em'

By Austin Freeman

from Andover Kansas

Just set these things up today. One thing I noticed is they aren't are bronze not gold, but they match the cymbals I was going to get rid of so now I can keep them. I played on them for about an hour, love em. Sound is great, they are beautiful, and they are very heavy duty, not cheap at all. I love them.


Very good

By zrawk95

from FL

These cymbals are very good. The set I play at church has the 13" hats and the 16" crash. I have used everything from these to Paiste 2002s and Sabian AAs and I like these almost as well as anything.


The Perfect Set.

By satan

from wi

This set is amazing. Great if you need a cheaper set or are just starting out. The hi hats are perfect. The 16" crash should cost way more. The 18" crash sorta sounds like a ride but its not bad at all. The ride is perfect imo, great bell. Overall id recomend this to anyone.



By sabianAllDay

These cymbals blew me away. I purchased these because they had good reviews and were quite affordable. As soon as I took them out of the box I recognized the sabian quality. They were very good looking. I set them up right away and banged around on them. The crashes (especially the 16") have a wonderful sound with lots of sustain but not to the point of being ringy. The hats are the best, they have a clean chic and a nice sizzle, they are professional quality for sure. The ride is pretty great although it does have somewhat of a ring but it's really not a problem and the bell is good. Overall a set of professional sounding cymbals and a total steal in terms of money. No wonder they're always back-ordered.


Great for beginners

By WillAJones

from Germantown Hills, Illinois

I personally have never owned these, I bought the ZBT's as my first set of cymbals. however, I just bought a complete Yamaha Rydeen set from an old friend of mine for my little brother and he included these with it. These are very good for beginners. I was shocked to find out how crisp the hi hats are, and they're three years old. Usually beginner hats lose they're crispness with time. The crashes and ride really don't sound bad either. This is perfect for beginner players. if you yourself are looking for a set of Entry cymbals, or someone you know is, I would recommend these indefinitely
