    Sabian Limited Steampunk Ride

    Been looking for one for a while. Got it for $300 in SLC this weekend. Was discounted due to some of the paint "flaking" around the bell. Otherwise I would rate it as very good with no smudges, scuffs, key holing, or dings. Love the sound. I have a AA Rock ride and a Custom Shop HH Rock ride as...

    Told to hit harder

    So, we did a show last night and some of our friends did the sound, one of which is a drummer and the other is a guitarist in a cover band.

    Sabian Duo (Click Hats)

    Last summer I picked up a pair of 14" Sabian HH Duo hats. Loved the sound from the start, but found they didn't project all that well. Since then I have been using an AAX stage bottom hi hat with them. Gives the darker loose sound on the top with the volume and click due to the heavier bottom...

Well a few weeks ago they contacted us about an end of month show for August, it was pretty easy to decline since we are booked every weekend through the end of the month. I also hate the idea of driving my truck and our equipment...

    Sabian 16" HH Duo Crash

    Just received a 16" HH Duo Crash from Sabian today. Ever since getting a 18" AAX Omni ealier this year I had scoured the ineternet for other Sabian cymbals of the same or similar lines. Frankly I love the sound as well as the semi raw look. I had an oppurtunity to play on a 22" Omni, but I...
