Sabian has announced that it has improved the B8 Pro, the bronze cymbal that was introduced 20 years ago.
What better way to mark 20 years of the SABIAN B8 Pro series than launching a new, even better B8 Pro?
Bright, tonally focused sounds, a wide range of models and Brilliant looks that kill have been hallmarks of the SABIAN B8 Pro series since 1991. These qualities have propelled B8 Pro to consistently solid sales figures throughout its 20 year history. However, not content to rest on their laurels, the artisans of the SABIAN Vault are marking 20 years of this iconic cymbal with the design of a new, better B8 Pro.
“The knowledge and techniques we have acquired by producing some of the world’s best cymbals – such as the HHX and Artisan series – don’t get forgotten when we come to the design table for B8 Pro,” says SABIAN Master Product Specialist Mark Love. “Even though this is a cymbal designed for players just getting into their first set of quality B8 Bronze cymbals, we have introduced a new, larger hammering pattern as well as subtle design changes to the bell that have significantly improved its sound.”
The results speak for themselves. The new, better B8 Pro is richer sounding, with a complexity of tone not typically found in cymbals at this price point. It opens up when hit hard, but now also “gives up the goods” when played lightly.
It’s the latest cymbal development from award winning cymbal maker SABIAN, and it’s fully protected by the SABIAN Two-Year Warranty.
