Sabian Dark Crash 18

JulianM, 25.06.2012

Meine endgültige Wahl viel hierbei unter anderem auf das Dark-Crash.

Ich spiele das Crash-Becken in zwei Variationen, 17" und 18" und ich muss sagen, ich bin begeistert. Diese zwei Becken fügen sich herrlich in mein Line-Up (welches ausschließlich aus Sabian Becken besteht) ein und ergeben ein schönes Klangbild.

Ich spiele Heavy Metal und Hard Rock und deswegen brauchte ich Becken die eine gewisse Durchsetzungskraft besitzen. Genau das bekommt man von diesen Becken geboten ohne "abartig" laut zu klingen und ohne zu "nerven". Das Becken selbst hat wie der Name schon andeuten lässt einen dunkleren Klang und ist nicht zu "hell". Mit langem Sustain und einer schnellen Ansprache gehört das Becken definitiv zu einem der Besten die ich bisher gespielt habe. In Kombinationen mit der 17" Variante macht es sogar noch mehr Spass!

Die Verarbeitung ist von Sabian wie gewohnt sehr hoch und lässt keine Wünsche offen.
Auch nach Jahren des Spielens, gibt in Sachen "Abnutzung" oder Rissen keine Beanstandung.

Fazit:
Wer ein gutes, durchsetzungsfähiges Becken sucht welches sich perfekt in den Hard n' Heavy Bereich eingliedern lässt, liegt hier genau richtig! Zudem besitzt das Becken eine schöne Dynamikspanne welche, wie versprochen, es erlaubt ganz laut bzw. sehr leise zu spielen ohne das der Sound irgendwelche "Einbrüche" erleiden muss. Saubere Arbeit von Sabian zu einem fairen Preis!" data-mt-lang="en-x-mtfrom-de" data-translated="After spending a long time with Zildjian Cymbals, I had to make a big change, since the sound did not appear to me on the set.

My choice much after a long pause and after many allusion tests from Paiste to Meinl on Sabian.

Now I had the possibility to test very much, to test or to play.
Sabian offers a nice variety of pools and there is something for everyone.
Be it in the beginner area over the middle class up to the "high end" class.

My final choice is much on the Dark Crash.

I play the crash basin in two variations, 17 "and 18" and I must say I am thrilled. These two cymbals fit nicely into my line-up (which consists exclusively of Sabian cymbals) and give a beautiful sound picture.

The processing is as usual from Sabian very high and leaves nothing to be desired.
Even after years of playing, there is no objection to "wear" or tears.

Conclusion:
If you are looking for a good, effective pelvis that fits perfectly into the Hard n 'Heavy range, this is the right place! In addition, the pool has a nice dynamic range which, as promised, allows to play loud or very quiet without the sound any "break-ins". Clean work by Sabian at a fair price!
