Sabian B8 Series 20-in Ride

Crisp stick definition, cutting bell, and bright tonal response blend to create a smooth, versatile ride.

When the initial pouring of molten bronze was cooled, rolled, and hammered to create the first Sabian cymbal in 1982, little did the world realize what a formidable success Sabian Ltd. would become. For those familiar with Sabian's dedication to producing the finest instruments possible, this rapid rise in popularity came as no surprise.

Within a decade, cymbals, gongs, and percussion instruments bearing the Sabian ringed logo were the choice of many of the world's leading drummers and percussionists. Today, Phil Collins, Jack DeJohnette, Chad Smith, Mike Portnoy, Evelyn Glennie, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps, and many more major players are members of the international family of drummers and percussionists affiliated with Sabian.

Their cymbals are crafted with an unparalleled degree of musical quality from the purest and most durable bronze alloys and offered at the fairest possible prices, ensuring acceptance and satisfaction with players of all styles of music and all budget levels.

The Sabian Secret

As Sabian artists top the charts, the company's reputation for producing high quality, innovative instruments sees Sabian consistently topping both consumer and dealer popularity polls. Modern Drummer magazine readers voted Sabian #1 Most Innovative Cymbal Company and #1 Most Consumer/Service Oriented Cymbal Company, while rocketing sales in over 100 countries have made Sabian the world's leading choice of cymbal.

Tradition joins innovation as a key factor in this success. With the HH Hand Hammered Series, Sabian is the only major company producing cymbals that are hand hammered in the ancient Turkish manner a craft imported from Istanbul, the traditional home of cymbal making. Sabian takes special care to ensure that every cymbal in their 7 different series is skillfully crafted to meet their superior standards of quality.

Though still a young name, Sabian has rapidly become a key part of cymbal making history, assuming a lead position by combining innovation and tradition to show the way for cymbal making in the future.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. Sabian B8 20-in Ride Customer Review
Sound: I've been drumming for about a year and a half. I bought this cymbal about 2-3 months ago and im stil very impressed with it. it's been good for pretty much everything i've used it for. Value: this is a great value. I'm not exactly a guy with a lot of money, but I definetly owuld suggest it to any begginer or somebody who can't afford an expensive ride, i think this is probably the best quality you will get for this price. Overall: Now I'm not even thinking about getting a new ride. I have other things that im looking forward to. It is holding up good and i plan on keeping it for now.
Style of Music: metal/ rock

"Sabian B8 Series 20-in Ride"
Overall: I'm a beginner drummer (age 69!) and just got a Sabian B8 20-inch ride for a Father's Day/advanced birthday gift. I had previously read all the reviews and, like some others, I found the sustained ring of this cymbal to be very annoying and objectionable. So what did I do?I affixed 2 squares of MOONGEL180 degrees apart to the cymbals underside and it now sounds truly GREAT!! I know; the experts will say that if you don't like the sound of a cymbal. then buy another type; fine if you're a pro and have losts of cash! Prior to spending much more money on another cymbal, I would highly recommend my remedy! To gauge the sound of my dampened B8, I made an audio recording and,as stated, it now sounds GREAT! The sustained ringing is gone!
Style of Music: rock, country, blues (perhaps some jazz)
