HOLY CHINA FROM SABIAN â€“ NOW AVAILABLE IN 17â€
01-02-2012Explosive new size available in popular Chad Smith model
In 2011 SABIAN introduced the Holy China â€“ and the response from drummers around the world was positively overwhelming. A testament to SABIAN innovation and forward-thinking design, the Holy China featured a higher profile to raise the pitch, holes for volume and sustain, and a large, unfinished bell for cut and durability. It was truly a modern Chinese cymbal.
â€œWe launched Holy China with 19â€ and 21â€ models because those are the sizes Chad loves to playâ€ says SABIAN Master Product Specialist Mark Love. â€œBut weâ€™ve had so much demand for custom 17â€ models that in the spirit of â€˜give-the-people-what-they-wantâ€™, weâ€™re adding the 17â€ to our product lineâ€. Not as monstrously loud as its larger siblings, the 17â€ will appeal to drummers who want the unique trashy tone of the Holy China, but less volume.
However, even at 17â€ the Holy China is not for the faint of heart. A unique hole pattern, large raw bell, high profile and wide lip all combine to create a monster of loudness and cut. Itâ€™s a unique and explosive package, and it was developed with Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith â€“ only from SABIAN.
