Rhythm (4/2010) test results:
Cheaper cymbals can be shrill and unpleasant, so the thing that will appeal most to a drummer trading up to these Xs20s will be the refi nement in tone. In fact it should come as a revelation: Wow, these are so smooth, so easy on the ear. The downside of that is the slight lessening of cutting edge and projection so that the cymbals could appear almost bland to some. For that extra timbral character you have to take the next step into the realms of really expensive cymbals. But for now these will do very well.
Rhythm (8/2007) test results:
While cheaper cymbals have nasty overtones and more expensive ones have character and breadth, the Xs20s are somewhere in between both the Medium and Rock versions have musical timbres, but they lack body and spread. This was most noticeable with the Rock ride and 16" Rock crash, both of which I found too abrupt. I much preferred the Mediums which are clean, crisp, warm and have at least some spread. If youre moving up from Sabians B8-Pros youll be in heaven, but the Xs20s still lack the scope and penetration of Sabians top pro lines. Which, at the price, is just what youd expect. You get the Sabian logo and musical B20 alloy at an affordable price. Smooth sounds but the cymbals generally lack fullness and decay rather quickly.
