Ideal for beginners, the Sabian 18" SBr Crash Ride is a dual-purpose model that delivers full-bodied riding and loud crashing equally well. With hammered and lathed surface, tightly focused sound and nice price, SBr is in a class of its own.
Like Sabian's B20 Bronze cymbals, SBR cymbals receive hand-guided hammering, using a peen that has been hand-shaped in the Vault specifically for Brass. Once complete, they end up in the Vault for testing before receiving a stamp of approval.
