Rides are always expensive. Untill you come across this baby. Its very affordable, and every drumset needs a ride if you don't have one already. I like the sound it has, and it feels heavy and durable. I play thrash metal and I use the bell in punk beats sometimes and it sounds great. Overall, great ride for a low price if your on a limited budget, you can't find rides this cheap very often.

Until you compare it to other rides. Before I got this about 6 Months ago all I had was a B8 Crash/Ride (which I DO NOT reccomend). I needed a ride so I picked this up. For $100 dollars I was very happy for about 4 months. Then I realized all the little flaws on this ride added up. The long sustain, horrible wash and other un-satisfactory things that made me hate the ride. I then realized that I needed a higher end ride to get a really crisp, clean sound. I saved up and sold this ride to get the Sabian AA Raw Bell Dry Ride (which is the greatest ever!). All in all, its good for a small price, but dont expect to be using it for long.

Obviously Made For Beginners...

By Freddy Morando

from Florida

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Rock Ride Cymbal:

I would only recommend this cymbal to a beginner someone who has only been playing maybe a few months and hasn't really had their first decent set of cymbals...I got this in a box set with a 16" Medium Crash, 18" Thin Crash, and a pair of 14" Hi-Hats. Right out of the box I was impressed but after about a month of using this cymbal it lost it's touch that ping that it had the first session I had with it quickly faded away as I played on it more. Now it just rings too much after I hit it, making it difficult to play with. I tried placing half a moon gel on it and it didn't help much. So I would suggest to anyone thinking about buying this cymbal spend the extra 100 bucks and get the APX ride, you won't be disappointed.

Good entry level ride

By Robert Caddy

from Indiana

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Rock Ride Cymbal:

Good entry level ride. It has pretty strong overtones but liberal application of gaffers tape will minize this. A decent sized and pretty good sounding bell but not really crashable. Overall its a good entry level cymbal but if you can buy Xs20's. If the Xs20's are to expesive then go with ZBT's

Pretty good ride for bigginers!

By Adam Jenson

from Forest Lake, MN

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Rock Ride Cymbal:

This ride is well worth the money. It is extremely strong! I have snapped sticks on this thing and it hasn't even dented. It rings VERY long, but you can put some tape on the bottom to fix that problem. I WOULD recommend this cymbal!!!

here it is, straight up.

By saffron

from nor cal

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Rock Ride Cymbal:

Ive owned this ride for about 5 years now. Now if you are looking for the epitome of METAL RIDES with a bell to die for look no further. In modern music people don't use rides traditionally using the tip, they crash them with the shank of the stick. This is not how its to be used. You play this ride traditionally. It is quite low in volume but when mic'd who cares. This is for a ride player. Price does not matter on this one. I have all aax and hh on other than this b8 and it is the best purchase out of the whole lot. I will never part from it.

Pretty Great

By The Handicaps

from Saint Peters, MO

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Rock Ride Cymbal:

This is a darn good cymbal for the price. It does ring quite a bit, but it is really easy to cover up, even with your own drumming, you can't even hear it. I bought it and I am vary pleased.
