SABIAN EXPANDS FREQUENCY-REDUCED FRX LINE
SABIAN has announced two new models in its frequency-reduced FRX line. New 10” Splash and 18” Chinese give drummers who play in settings where traditional cymbals are just too much, two excellent effects options. The Splash offers pristine, 100% pure Splash tone. The 18” Chinese offers just the right amount of trash, with all the blistering heat drummers expect in a China, but with built-in EQ for complete control.

SABIAN AAX GOES HEAVY
SABIAN adds a Heavy Crash to its recently redesigned AAX line. Launched with Thin and Medium Crashes, the new Heavy Crash gives drummers who play AAX more meat for more projection and volume. Slightly darker than traditional AAX, it also introduces more highs into the tone. For drummers, that means brighter highs and more complex lows in a Heavy Crash offering.

NEW SABIAN HHX COMPLEX ARE A GAMECHANGER
New HHX Complex are some of the richest, sweetest sounding cymbals SABIAN has ever produced. They offer drummers deep, complex tones with enhanced lows and boosted shimmer. Two new Rides offer even more versatility to the line. Big, thin and dark, the hand-hammered raw bells on new 21” and 22” Complex Thin Rides enhance the lows and boost the complexity. In addition, a new 10” Complex Splash offers a pure note for the perfect splash sound. Versatility is excellent, allowing drummers to easily cross musical boundaries.
SABIAN ADDS NEW B&O CYMBALS TO AFFORDABLE B8X LINE
Designed for budget-sensitive percussionists, schools and ensembles, SABIAN has added new B8X Band, Marching and Concert Band pairs. The B8X line offers full, bright sound, with significantly richer tone than entry-level Brass cymbals. B8X Marching Band pairs cut musically through marching ensembles, while the Concert Band pairs blend nicely with concert ensembles. The Band pairs are durable and lightweight, ideal for budget-sensitive school programs.
NEW SABIAN CROTALES RAISE THE BAR
SABIAN continues to raise the bar for Crotales with new High and Low sets. The 13-disk sets provide unmatched purity and clarity, with perfectly matched fundamentals and harmonics. Tuned to A=442, both sets offer excellent projection and sustain, with pitch and intonation remaining crystal clear throughout the entire duration of each note. Both sets are offered in skus with mounting bar and stem, and also with mounting bar, stem and sturdy base. A hardshell case that allows Crotales to be played from inside is also available separately.
