NEW B8 PRO O-ZONE CRASHES DELIVER THE GOODS
01-02-2012High-Decibel Design Brings Focused Cut to B8 Pro Line
SABIAN introduced its radically innovative O-Zone cymbals in 2002 with the launch of HHX Evolution models. At the time, there was nothing else that looked or sounded like O-Zones, and they quickly went on to become best-sellers. Described as having â€œa space-age lookâ€, they delivered a new sound that was aggressive, raw and nasty. Now, that same sound is available in the SABIAN B8 Pro series â€“ great news for drummers stepping up to their first set of B8 bronze cymbals!
The two new B8 Pro O-Zone Crashes feature similar O-Zone multi-holed design as HHX and AAX models, but their double ring of response enhancing holes guarantees that these radical new models respond rapidly, with brilliant explosion and dirty agitation.
â€œThe O-Zone is not a typical crash, itâ€™s a crude and aggressive combination of a thin crash and a Chinese â€“ extremely raw, nasty and very biting,â€ says Master Product Specialist Mark Love. â€œNot only do the 2â€ holes increase the nasty factor, they also lighten the weight of the cymbal. So while its size and volume remain the same, the response is actually much faster because thereâ€™s less metal mass to move.â€
Available in 16â€ and 18â€ models, the new B8 Pro O-Zone Crashes are a great addition to Sabianâ€™s new, better B8 Pro line. Already touted as a cymbal for drummers who play with â€œSpeed, Power and Aggressionâ€, with the addition of O-Zone Crashes, B8 Pro just got even faster, more powerful, and more aggressive!
