Sabian B8 well worth it!

Total rating

I had always thought that one should aspire to play Zildjian cymbals. However, before I bought these cymbals, I tried a lot out. I had been playing Solars for a number of years and thought they sounded quite reasonable. I play all kinds of rock, so wanted a sound that was bright and would cut through.

I know the B8s are not the top of the range but I think they sound really good. The set I bought had the 18" thin rock crash. This cymbal is fantastic for loud and long lasting accents with the 16" for the standard accents. Also in the set was the 20" ride and 14" hi hats, again a lovely bright clean, cutting sound.

At the price, the performance set was cheaper than I could get it anywhere in UK.

I was so impressed with the B8s that I have added a 18" china and a 10" splash. Am just waiting f a B8 bell!

All in all, the B8 s a fantastic range for a very reasonable price and should be seriously considered as a contender with some of the more expensive makes.

Enjoy!

Sabian B8 Performance Plus Set

The Sabian B8 Performance Plus Set is a great cymbal set for someone looking for a good sound at an affordable price.
The ride has a good tone when played, I wish there was a bit more overall sustain with it, but it's still great.
The two crashes (16 inch and 18 inch) are also great. I usually only play with one crash, but it's great having the choice.
The hi-hats sound good when closed. The sound when half open is ok. When they are fully open they do not sound good at all. This is one of the bigger downfalls. I have not played any other hi hats, so I'm not sure if this is a problem that all hi hats have.

Overall, great cymbals at a great price.

Cheap and cheerful

You get what you pay for. Next time I will invest in a more expensive set. The hi hats seem very dull and the crashes heavy and clangy. I am disappointed as I was expecting better of Sabian even at this level product. I will have to live with them for now but I will upgrade as soon as I can. They will satisfy a beginner and there is a place for them in the market; they are just not what I was expecting.
