When it comes to cymbals, Sabian is favored by the pros more often than not. In fact, Sabian's roster is constantly growing and currently includes notable industry veterans like Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Daniel Adair of Nickelback, Martin Axenrot of Opeth and countless others. Specifically, Sabian medium heavy cymbals are what these rockers and metalheads often prefer because they have the power, brightness and top-notch stick articulation to suit louder rock styles. Even better is that Sabian's selection of medium heavy cymbals is packed with crashes, hi-hats, rides and effects cymbals to fit every budget.
So where do you begin in a catalog this impressive? It helps to consider how much you're willing to spend and what cymbal you currently want to include (or upgrade) in your kit. Every drummer knows how essential the ride cymbal is and Sabian has plenty of models here including the affordable AAX Raw Bell Dry Ride (known for its clear, crisp response) and AAX Stadium Ride Cymbal (well-liked for its great projection and articulate bell).
Now, if you're in the market for a crash, Sabian has plenty of treats here for you as well. On the affordable side of things, there's the SBr Crash Cymbal: it's loud, punchy, and perfect for accents. Or, if you're a headbanger, go with the AA Metal Crash Cymbal - it comes in diameters ranging from 16" to 19" and has enough volume to be heard over any cranked amplifier.
To sum things up, you couldn't have found a better place for a new Sabian medium heavy cymbal. Even killer hi-hats like the SBR HI-HAT Pair and the AAX Freq Hi-Hats are sitting in these pages. Feeling experimental? Feast your eyes on the Sabian Chopper or the HH Radio Cup Chimes. It's obvious that Sabian knows more than a thing or two about medium heavy cymbals and you don't need to look any further than this section for proof!
