Default Re: Sabian 60s sound

Finding Sabians that sound likes vintage Zildjians should be a cinch. You are aware that the founder of Sabian was Robert Zildjian. The Sabian plant in Canada used to be a Zildjian plant. It and the right to use the Zildjian family metal formula were awarded to Robert in the late 70's as the result of a lawsuit. Please stick with cymbals that use B20 bronze, and don't worry too much about recreating some vintage sound. More than recreating some bygone era this drummer is going to want to sound good. In my opinion modern cymbals sound superior anyway. Sounding good is most important.
