          This 12" B8 Splash was exactly what I wanted. It provides the perfect transition from my 8" Splash to my 14" Thin Crash - all Sabian B8 series. It's too trashy to be a proper Crash, and too big to be a traditional Splash. It has that quick cutting quality, and then it's gone. Say what you want about the B8 series, but I like the thin stuff for that very reason. If you don't hit like you're trying to hammer it into a new shape, you won't.

          It's kinda hard to describe the sound of the 8in I have had, it's more of a "chhh" sound. Don't expect any kind of refined tones, considering this is Sabian's cheapest option. Regardless of the price, I've had this for 5 years and it hasn't broken yet. Not really impressive for a tiny splash, but still a great beginner cymbal. Removing the logos also made a slight increase in sound.

                I originally bought the 12 inch as a transition between a splash and a crash. It did not dissapoint. So I bought the 10 inch as a straight ahead splash. Do these sound as sterling as the top of the lines? No, but they do the job at far less cost. Until I get an endorsement from Sabian, I'm happy with these.

                    I already own a 10" B8 splash and wanted to get an 8" and 6", i bought the 6" first. I love the sound, it's great for accents. I will know be buying the 8" soon.

                            If you are shopping for a splash that splashes, here it is. Sounds like a splash should. Nice and thin, fast decay, and piercing sound. Got the 10 inch, I'm stoked!

                            Overall this Cymbal is really Great Its good looking splashy sounding and easy to polish Great for the price.
                            This Cymbal looks as good as it plays it has got a nice finish on it its a great buy I bought the 10in Cymbal and it sounds amazing it is really splashy and not trashy fast decay and a really crisp sound but i wouldn't hit it very hard because like all cymbals it can dent but you dont need to hit it hard because it is pretty loud anyway. I would recommend this to every one and its a really good price. Great Buy.
                            It looks really Good and if you get drum stick marks on it they polish out really easily.

                            overall, a great little cymbal, and a terrific addition to my set. will withstand a lot, besides slight denting. you can buy this cymbal without regrets.
                            i was very surprised to take this cymbal out of the bag. i was skeptic as well, because usually people give the B8 sabian cymbals a bad rep. i own the 8 inch. this little cymbal cuts through evey other cymbal in my set. i also did some expirimenting with this cymbal. i turned it upside down on my 16 inch crash, and it sounds extremely brighter, and louder. it sounds like an 8 inch AA chinese. although the downside to this is that it dents very easily. but all in all a great splash for the price.
                            this cymbal tends to get dents, but your going to get that with most small/thin cymbals. its only about 45 bucks, not going to complain.
                            this, is well worth the price it is. you absolutly get what you pay for. great value for a b8 series

                            Comments about Sabian B8 Series Splash Cymbal:

                            I've had this splash (10 in) for about 8 months now. The more i play it, the better it sounds. It's loud enough to where when I record my drum videos (I don't use microphones) you can hear it really well. For the price, it's nothing compared to a Zildjian K or A. But if you want a good splash that isn't extremely expensive. This is the right one.
