Sabian has been redefining cymbals and cymbal accessories for decades, and they haven’t skipped a beat yet (buh-dut-tss). There is a reason why famous drummers like Terry Bozzio, JoJo Mayer, Neil Peart and Mike Portnoy play Sabian. That reason you may ask? Quality. More so, quality, consistency and passion. The Sabian brand has moved mountains to get where they are today, based on those qualities and many more just like them. Lucky for us though, they brought some new toys with them.
This year, Sabian has delivered a new line, simply titled, the XSR Series. With this new series, players will get thinner, quicker crashes, tasty balanced rides for better stick definition and tone, and a variety of other beneficial gear as well. With these cymbals, Sabian has included their pure Sabian B20 Bronze, utilizing the same “trickle-down technology” incorporated in their award winning Evolution and X-Plosion cymbals. The best part about these cymbals though? XSR delivers a better price point than most any other cymbal out there. It’s almost a no brainer when you think about it. High quality cymbals at a fraction of the cost? Sign me up!
Luckily, here at Willis Music in Florence, we carry this impressive line. All you drummers out there should come check them, and let me know how you like them in the process. Drum on folks!
