OVERVIEW

Great cymbals at a great price.

The Sabian B8 Rock Pack with Free 15" AAXplosion Crash is a great value.

The 16" B8 Rock Crash is designed for high-volume playing. It is bright, explosive, and full-bodied. Excellent sound saturation.

The 20" B8 Rock Ride is intensely powerful with a distinctive, metallic stick definition and crisp, cutting bell. Excellent cut and projection.

14" B8 Rock Hi-Hats deliver a strong high-end tone with bright, focused intensity. They are loud, cutting, and really project with a bright wash when played slightly open.

The FREE Sabian 15" AAXplosion Crash is hand-hammered from B20 bronze alloy. It bursts with a bright, explosive attack. 15" size delivers definition with presence and power, yet is controlled for pinpoint punctuations.

I got this set in 2005 and I've not had a problem with it in a year. The ride rings a while, yeah. The B8 crash is a bit high pitched, yeah. But that's what they are for, loud, heavy, rock music. They are made to be cutting cymbals. The hi hats sound great played open or closed. The AAXplosion is an amazing cymbal. I've had lots of people come up to me and say that that is probably the best cymbal they've ever heard. None of these cymbals have cracked for the year I've had them. If you do not hit them flatly, they do not crack. I've angled mine and they've put up to my abuse. A very good cymbal set for rock drummers.

I love the AAX crash it came with, but that's about it. For one thing, the B8 crash rings and buzzes, despite my best dampening efforts. The hats are average, but do make that "air-tight" sound. If you are a somewhat experienced drummer, you know what I am talking about. The ride is about average. It does resonate for a long time after you stop playing. It requires a hand to make it stop. Overall, I would buy the Zildjian ZBT 4 Rock Cymbal Pack, for the same price.

These cymbals really are perfect for the price. I purchased them a good 6 months ago, I've gone through skins, lots of sticks, and a pedal. But not one sign of bad usage has come from these cymbals. No dents, no marks, nothing. Still sounds full too. All in all, just perfect for the price, I highly recomend.

Ok lets start off with the good. The 15in AAXplosion crash has to be one of the best cymbals I have ever used. The high hats are pretty good not the best but will do. The ride is not the best it has a loud ping which I like but takes way way to long to die out. The 16in crash however sucks it lasts way to long and has a really annoying ring to it, it sounds like a telephone with an anoying ring. Oh and did I say that it comes with three sets. So you can just sell the two you dont need and buy a nice new zildjian crash. So I would say buy it if your on a budget if not get some zildjins there way better.

good cymbals for the price

By pearldudefromLA

from alabama

I agree with most of these people. These are really good cymbals for the price. The ride cymbal does echo out too long though. But I do have to say I love the hi-hats. They deliver a perfect and crisp sound for what I use them for, and the crashes aren't exactly what I hoped for but they are ok for now.

Not for metal

By drummer/soldier

from Army overseas

These cymbals are great cymbals for the price, but are made for more lighter styles of music, such as jazz or blues. They definitely weren't made for playing hardcore metal or some other similar genre.

I bought this cymbal pack about 2 months ago and I am very disappointed in the quality of this product. The ride is washy and rings to long just for starters. The crash is to DAMN LOUD!!! and the hats sound horrible when open but when closed have that desired "chick" sound. I do not recommend this. The Zildjin ZBT set is a lot better sounding than this.

Tastefully Splendifferous

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got this set for Christmas and I'll say they are quite swell. The hats give a nice "chik" sound and sound good open or closed. The 15" AAXplosion crash is awesome. I real dark rich sound that swells magnificently. The 16" has a real high pitch crash that really brings out some sound. The ride is best played near the edge of the "ride range" and has a great bell. The bell is sometimes not very loud but overall, a very good set.

Pretty Good

By cdav16

from Moorsville N.C

I just got the sabian rock pack a week ago. The 16 in crash rings for to long! The ride has a loud ping but rings alot too. The hats are good. The FREE 15 in crash is awsome!! It's kinda like a awsome crash with a hint of china. Just alittle bit. You're would think that the 15 in would have a higher pitch than the 16 in but its the other way around. Overall, pretty good set up.

B8 sabian cymbal pack

By Truth Awaits dude 24

from SouthBay

I started playing drums on Paiste 2002 and Paiste RUDE. High dollar cymbals. Going from that to these was huge jump. The high hats are really really loud. The Bell on the ride is too quit and the crashes ring out for ages. I never heard the explosion. So ica tn commnet on that. Even if you are buying these just to have a backup set or something to hold you over until you get new ones, these ARE NOT THEM. Go with zildjian for cheap backups. There do fine for a while

Sweet Cymbals

By El Scorpio

from Phoenix, AZ

These cymbals are awesome! There is just no way to explain in words on how excellent these cymbals are. I had some Zildjian cymbals and guess what, The sabian cymbals are way better. So go buy them, It's worth the money.
