The cymbal is great and very economic. Its thin sound is great for any type of music you might be interested in. Though for the price some feel obligated to say it's great for beginners I must say this is a great performance cymbal for any drummer who loves to play music. I've had this cymbal for a while now and have done various shows with it and it has never let me down in any possible way. The cymbal's great, period.

This cymbal is good if you need to add some sound to your set, but if you can, you might want to spend a little more money and get something with a better sound. It doesn't really sound all that good with my kit, even though I have all Sabian B8 cymbals, and for a thin cymbal it has an incredibly long and loud decay. So if you really need something soon, this works because it is nice and cheap, but in the long run, you won't be satisfied...

great buy

By BPdrummer

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

I've had this cymbal for 3 years. Its held up fairly well, and im a real hard hitter. Although after a year of abuse, it started to bend, it still sounds amazing and there so no signs of cracking yet.

WOW!!!

By Bobby

from IN

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

if i had to describe this cymbal in one word it would be wow. I saw a used one of these at my local music store and I always wondered how sabian cymbals are because i play zildjians most of the time. I needed a new crash and this one was half off so i said why not. I went home and tried it out. WOW i was blown away this cymbal sounds so good mixed with my other cymbals and just by itself such a great buy and tons of sound from a cymbal that is from a lower series. The thin type of this cymbal really makes it sound loud and alive. It sounds a little darker than my other cymbals which are zildjian zhts but i love it i'm soo glad i got this!

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

This 14" thin crash cymbal is absoloutley amazing. Unlike with some other cymbal companies, you aren't going to pay for the name, but for the sound. Just as good as some of my AA's

Great for budget/beginning drummer

By chris

from East Bay, CA

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

If you dont have lots of cash to drop on cymbals, then B8s are your best bet. The B8 thin crash is a bright cymbal, and can border on gongy at times, but you definitely get your money's worth for these.

Sabian B8 Thin Crash...

By DGB-Drummer

from Memphis

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

I have been playing drums for 4 years now, and have recentlly bought the Sabian B8 thin crash. I have played several different types of cymbals and drumsets, to come to the conclusion that Sabian cymbals are perfect for blues, rock, metal, & everything else that there is to play. The thin crash is one of the best i've ever heard, especially for a "non-professional" cymbal. I have compared it to many higher-grade zildgian cymbals, and have loved this the most. I highly recommend to buy this cymbal it's inexpensive, and has an excellent sound.

Pretty Good

By Wes R.

from Frankfort, KY

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

I got the 14" crash cymbal, and I plan too get the 16". It's good for playing rock and alternative, and it's alright for heavier stuff. A tip for when you're getting cymbals one by one, try not to mix brands or models. In this case (I think) that the Sabian B8's go well with the Zildjian ZBT's, but it's best to try to get all the same brand/models.

I have the 18" and the 16". They both play and sound amazing. No they're not AA or even HH, but they are great if you dont have alot of money. GO out and buy them, you will be impressed. Dont play anything but Sabian.

Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal

By SnareMan420

from New York, NY

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

Sabian's B8 cymbals always sounded great to me. It's inexpensive, but no corners were cut making it. I've had mine(16 inches) for over 2 years and it still sounds and looks fine. The intensity of this crash is great. It really adds energy to the sound of the drums, spices things up a bit.

AMAZING!!!

By YoungDrummer92

from Jacksonville

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

I bought a 14" thin crash not to long ago and it still sounds awesome. The sound of the cymbal is just perfect. I went to a friends house and played on his zildjian cymbals and was blown away by how dull they sounded. Sbabians just seem to always have the sound I'm looking for. I highly recomend these cymbals. I'm looking foward to adding a 16" crash to my set.

Love this cymbal

By Josh

from UT

Comments about Sabian B8 Series Thin Crash Cymbal:

I can say a few things about this cymbal. First, it lasted me two years. I hit HARD. It now has a one inch crack, but it still sounds decent. It's original sound, however, was very very good! At first I was like, B8...So? But when I heard it and included it on my kit, I was astounded! This cymbal is very bright, quick, and has just the right amount of attack and noise for what I need it for. Great for rythems and breakdowns that go pretty quick. Not just for beginners, this cymbal does it all! :D
