Sabian: A New Generation-Florence

sabian_lobo

 

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!

Cymbal Vote 2013 is Coming!

vote 2

What is cymbal vote???

Cymbal Vote allows drummers from around the world to determine what new models SABIAN will introduce in 2014. SABIAN has long been known for its innovation in cymbals, and frankly, each year we develop more cool new ideas than we can introduce as new products in a single year. So we decided to let you decide! These drummers get to hear cymbals never seen before and comment on how each performs; could be improved or what they love about it.

Want to hear these cymbals for yourself? A limited number of Cymbal Vote Tour stops have been scheduled around the world. Willis Music in Louisville is proud to have been asked to participate in this; join us Saturday, October 12 at Noon to be a part of this!

The votes from drummers from around the world will decide which 4 cymbals become the new models for 2014 and get to wear the Cymbal Vote crown. The winners will be announced at the NAMM show in January and available in local retail stores soon after that.
