      great buy for anyone beginners and experts. great sound durable and even flow and nice ringing low tone.
      is a pretty great cymbal the sound is great when you play it closed and open sounds heavy(ish) (great for punk/metal) very versityle and good for anyone on a budget or even someone with cash.
      Very good quality make. can take a beating has a great vibrant low sound and rings nicely.
      great pricing for these cymbals. great for a budget and great for anyone who wants a good sounding cymbal...i do use zildjian a custom crashes and paiste pst 5 ride..these sounds mix very well and i honestly like the sabian sound of all cymbals as much or more than zildjian...even when recorded these cymbals sound great also live performances sound good.

      I had these cymbals for like a year, right after i started out with the trash can lids that came with my set. I thought they were pretty sweet over the while i had them, but i always noticed they were pretty ringy, and extremely ringy when closed tight. After i realized i wanted something better, i went with mastersound zildian a's, and i realized the improvement is AMAZING. So really these are great for the low price and for beginners, but you will soon want to upgrade to something a little more expensive like AA sabians, or A mastersounds to get a HUGE improvement

            These were great, durable hi hats when i first got a drum set. once i got better i started to distinguish differences in cymbals and i noticed that these don't have the best range. they sound decent but ringy closed and decent open but the sound kinda dies off. If you're a beginner you should get them but after that you need to move up to a more dynamic hi hat.

                I've had these cymbals for awhile now and I have since upgraded to Zildjian A New Beats. For the price of these cymbals theyre pretty good. When compared to Meinl HCS/MCS Paiste PST3/5 and Zildjian ZBT/ZXT/ZHT, the Sabians blow them away.They are bright with a nice defined chick and a great open sound.

                Good for Beginners

                Comments about Sabian B8 Series 14" Hi-Hat Cymbals:

                I have been using the 14" B8 hi hats for a year and a half now, and they are great...for beginners. When closed tightly they sound like plastic, and when partially open they don't sound too good either. However, if you are patient enough to play them lightly, you can get a nice sound from them. I have no regrets buying them, as they are very durable and don't scratch easily when hit hard. These are great if your just starting out, but otherwise I would save another $70 and get the Sabian Xs20's.

                Great hi hats

                Comments about Sabian B8 Series 14" Hi-Hat Cymbals:

                I play these hats at my church. I never planned on getting anything from the B8 series besides my 18" crash. The crash sounded fine but I had always expected the hats and the ride to sound very low end. For these hi hats being low end they have a very great tone. I love going to my church and playing them. I also like that they're 14" unlike my Zildjian hi hat's which are 13"

                Great budget hats

                Comments about Sabian B8 Series 14" Hi-Hat Cymbals:

                I bought these hats as a quick fix before a gig. They are a great pair for the money. They are sturdy and sound really nice. They are by no means perfect however. Open they are really warm (almost too warm for hats) they give a nice sizzle but lose their projection. My first gig with them was in a very small room at a conference for a radio network. When playing them open they were almost inaudible. Closed they are honestly some of the best sounding hats I have played. If you are on a budget get these hats there is no better value pair out there. But save your pennies for a better future pair especially if you are playing large venues and are not mic'd.

                Great high hats

                Comments about Sabian B8 Series 14" Hi-Hat Cymbals:

                I got these high hats about 2 years ago. Open they sound okay, closed they sound really good. They have not dented yet and I take them to gigs and they tend to get beat up a lot. I would recommend anyone on a budget to buy these.

                Comments about Sabian B8 Series 14" Hi-Hat Cymbals:

                I bought a set of these for my drummer and let me tell you that these hats are some of the best sounding hats I have ever heard. They are very expressive crisp and clean sounding. Sound good open and closed.(Could probly use them as little crashes LOL) best buy on the market for hi hats. Can't dent them shorts of taking a hammer to them I have been trying to dent them even use some heavy B's and hit them with the handle part of the stick hard didn't even leave a scuff mark. Good hats.

                Comments about Sabian B8 Series 14" Hi-Hat Cymbals:

                These cymbals are ok. They seem to be very top heavy and don't get a good swivvel when hit.I would suggest going for the B8pro's because they sound so much better for not much more.
