Product Description

A Killer Crash Ride at a Smart Price

Delivering both a full-sounding ride and a penetrating, medium-weight crash, the Sabian 18” B8 Crash Ride offers unmatched versatility at a price point that is sure to fit any budget. If this is your first step into Bronze cymbals, our B8 Crash Ride offers the tonally tight sounds only Sabian B8 Bronze can deliver. A testament to Sabian innovation and forward-thinking design, the 18” B8 Crash Ride sounds as good as cymbals that cost many times more. A full-sounding ride with crisp, lively sticking and a solid, penetrating bell is not what you would typically expect from empty-level Bronze, but Sabian delivers the goods with this crisp, lively model.

A Cymbal Your Band Mates Will Love

Meticulously crafted, it delivers tonally focused, bright sounds and loads of versatility – ideal for beginner drummers looking to get into their first set of Bronze cymbals.

I purchased this cymbal because it was on special and didn't know what to expect. I must say that sounds better than I could possibly have imagined. I can't find any faults in this cymbal. It is solid, sturdy and well manufactured. The sound of the ride is crystalline and clear. When crashed, is explodes in a wall of sound with beautiful sustain and resonance. When you consider the great price, grab it while you can!

This was my first cymbal, and it honestly sounded better than any of my other more expensive cymbals. IT was always consistent in sound. It lasted me 5 years, and I'm actually considering buying another because it's such a good buy.
