Precious metal for heavy metal.
Increased metal thickness and a bigger bell combine in this Xs20 Rock Crash to boost power for more volume, greater attack, and cutting penetration.
Xs20 has a bold, updated, professional look with hand-lathing cuts of wide blade grooves into the surface. This updated look combines with B20 "cast" bronze, the metal played by the pros--delivering a bright, musical and extremely serious sound. Sabian's super-hard and musical B20 bronze are formed to shape using innovative and cost-saving Sabian technology.
What makes Xs20 crash cymbal so special is that this is 100% B20, the magical alloy that is pure Sabian "cast" bronze, the most durable and musical of all cymbal metals... the highest tin... the metal played by the pros, including Chad Smith, Jose Pasillas, Mike Portnoy, and Josh Eppard. It took ten years of research to design the world's first and finest budget-priced B20 bronze cymbal. The Sabian Xs20 is the first B20 bronze cymbal to offer high quality at such a low price.
