Following Sabian’s launch of its XSR cymbals in January 2016, the company has added three new models to the line: 17″ and 19″ XSR Fast Crashes, and a 22″ XSR Ride (prices TBA). These B20 cast cymbals incorporate many of the same processes as Sabian’s HHX Evolution and AAX X-Plosion cymbals.
Sabian hand-hammers its new 17″ and 19″ XSR Fast Crashes, which feature enhanced profiles. In addition, bells are shaped and designed to accelerate the overall sound for a quick, explosive response with penetrating definition and power.
The versatile 22″ XSR Ride offers a balance of stick definition and tonal wash, and a mid-sized bell that’s designed for music that requires solid grooves.
Sabian says that XSR is “not a budget series, but rather a line of smartly priced cymbals designed to better fit within the average drummer’s cymbal budget.”
