An impulse purchase that has paid off.
keys-n-stix, 24.09.2018
Although I only drove to Thomann during the last visit, after the long tour through all the rooms I had to go back to the pool because the Sabian Apollo did not leave my head.
I mainly play jazz and funk and spent a lot of time looking for a suitable left side cymbal that would make a good partner for my Zildjian High Definition Ride. I was looking for a cymbal with a well defined stick sound, a quiet background noise and a short crash sound when it matters. That's exactly what I found in Sabian Apollo.
For rock and harder gaits, however, it is not so much in question, because it holds back well and, for example, does not give enough when used in the heavy metal sector. For pop, jazz, funk, blues and soul it is highly recommended.

Beautiful ride
Samuel492, 03.06.2015
This ride is much closer to some Zildjian K Custom and this type of ride was until now absent from the sabian catalog. The original Ugly Apollo is entirely crafted on its lower part, giving it a slightly balanced shine that does not have the custom K The apollo is inevitably dry but its finesse gives it just enough for the serious overtones that provide a little wrinkle, it never races and its ping is ideal for complex patterns in play Jazz, each shot is very definite, and it remains powerful enough to accompany a ride of electric Rock, its crash is superb, very short, very organic (serious) and it is ideal in jazz for lkes accentuations. Of crash at the end of fill-in rock, its bell is rather classic, not stridente, quite exploitable for a funk or rock.
On the finish side, the new golden logos are very discreet, it is beautiful, and it is beautiful to see her waving under the blows of chopsticks, its finesse is impressive, it weighs only 2.6kg and for a 22 " The standard of the great jazz cymbals of the past, a real success, not too messy too, and really beautiful to watch with its lunar spots: she took the pole position in my set of cymbals, But I kept my Ride HH medium 20 "above the HiHat to have a higher ping on some pieces.
