Tough and Very Loud

By PearlDrummer7

from muncie, in

Comments about Sabian B8 Chinese Cymbal:

The Sabian B8 18" china is a nice part of my kit and by far the loudest. The sound is very nice with tons of vibration and resonance, so much to the point it could rival a small gong. I've read about a pro drummer for a mainstream metal band actually using an 18" B8 China for its powerful sound. B8s are very thick, tough cymbals and this china is no different. I've owned one for 2 years and have had no problems with cracking or warping. This cymbal sounds great, cuts through any sound, and can take a beating. Great cymbal at a great price.

Sabian B8 Chinese Cymbal

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sabian B8 Chinese Cymbal:

This B8 Chinese is LOUD! When I hit this cymbal it overpowers all of the other cymbals in my drumset. I have owned it for 2 years and given it quite a beating, and it is still in great condition, no cracks or keyholing. It's a great deal for a beginner drumset who wants a nice China sound in their set.

By An o.k. drummer

from Vacaville, CA

Comments about Sabian B8 Chinese Cymbal:

the sabian B8 china is a cool cymbal to start with, and sounds good when its recorded. but i play music with a lot of heavy breakdowns its not as "china-ey" as I want it to sound when im playing it. its too crash sounding for me

By Jaymes palmer

Comments about Sabian B8 Chinese Cymbal:

I got this cymbal because there was no other china in the shop but i was willing to wait but im glad that i didnt because this thing is @#%!&*$ loud!! its the best sounding cymbal on my set! the sound is great and the resonance is also great. wouldnt recomend anything else. The look and feel match the sound and crash.... Perfection on a stand.

Pretty good

By AWDMetalDrummer

from Clay,Kentucky

Comments about Sabian B8 Chinese Cymbal:

This cymbal is pretty good if u just want a cheap cymbal that sounds good. However is does crack after a while so if u want it to keep lasting get the warranty. Over all tho its a pretty good cymbal. Its not a very big name B8 but who cares it doesnt matter just how u play it does.

Very Loud For a Little Price

By Alexander

from Washington

Comments about Sabian B8 Chinese Cymbal:

I got this bad boy about a month ago, and let me tell you, it is loud. It's so loud that I have a hard time hitting it full force without feeling bad for my neighbors. The sound is very low, and very Chinese, just as it's supposed to be. If you're going to get your first Chinese, and you want it to scream out, get this one and save some wallet lining. Sounds great when you smash it slowly with really fast double bass breakdowns :D

pretty good!

By Drake Rice

from Castle Rock, CO

Comments about Sabian B8 Chinese Cymbal:

when I bought i was expecting this beginner sound, but instead i sounded like it was a Zildjan K, or Sabian HHX, something high quality, it's a great deal. just it is really loud, so unless you are playing in a huge hall or something it is not the best dynamics wise, really good sound though.
