ROCK In any style of rock – hard, progressive, driving pedal-to-themetal – your playing will be harder, heavier, and louder. So your cymbals should deliver three things; Volume, Cut, and Durability. For volume, go with bigger, heavier models. For cut, play brighter sounding series (AA, AAX, APX, Paragon), or darker sounding models designed to project (HHX, HH Rock), or other models that meet the Cut, Volume, Durability, criteria.

POP Pop encompasses styles ranging from melodic- or groove-based to all-out power-driven. Like the music, cymbal sounds and weights can vary dramatically. Brighter sounds (AA, AAX) offer more presence, darker tones (HH, HHX) add musical darkness. Also consider APX or Vault V models for even brighter, more cutting sounds. Thin to medium crashes, medium to heavy rides, and medium to rock weight hats are most popular.

METAL If your playing is power and precision personified, then the cymbals for your set-up will need to include explosive crashes, a precise ride, and hats that cut when closed and blow through the band when open. Plus you’ll want a sound that kills and durability that will handle your attack, in cymbals designed not to crack. APX, AAX Metal, AA Metal-X and Paragon deliver the goods.

R&B The greatest R&B grooves were played on thin- and mediumweight cymbals. With SABIAN you can play those classic vintage sounds in the AA (brighter) and HH (darker) series.

JAZZ The dark, tonal complexity at the heart of jazz cymbal sounds got its start with hand hammered cymbals. HH is hand hammered. For hot, simmering darkness with ‘Tone Projection’ play HHX. For absolute tone, feel and touch, try the Vault Artisan Ride. For less complex, more direct sounds, AA and AAX respond with added brightness.

Praise & Worship The soulful sounds of gospel – not unlike R&B, the blues and soul – call for cymbals that are rich with tone and sound more musical than metal. HH and HHX offer soulful sounds that blend into the music, making it fuller and richer from within. For brighter sounds, AAX with ‘Dynamic Focus’ is ideal. Models in light to medium weights are most effective.

FUNK There are various types of funk, from the bigger band syncopations of Tower of Power to slippery hip-hop grooves. But one thing is certain; cymbals that cut clearly and hats that can deliver on every pedal ‘chick’ or stick stroke with crisp, cutting precision are what it takes to make the groove get heard. HHX with ‘Tone Projection’ is about as funky as cymbals can get. For brighter, shimmering sounds, mix in some AAX. For vintage sounds try HH for dark tones, AA for bright energy. APX and Vault V models offer brighter, more cutting responses.

HI-HATS AAX Fast Hats (13", 14") APX Solid Hats (13", 14", 15") HH Fusion Hats (13", 14") HHX Evolution Hats (13", 14") HHX Groove Hats (13", 14", 15") HHX X-Celerator Hats (13", 14") Vault Jam Master Hats (13") Vault Artisan Hats (13", 14", 15") SPLASHES AAX Splash (10", 12") HH Splash (8", 10", 12") HHX Splash (10", 12") CRASHES AAX X-Plosion Crash (16", 17", 18", 19", 20") APX O-Zone Crash (16", 18") HHX X-Plosion Crash (16", 17", 18", 19", 20") HHX Evolution O-Zone Crash (16", 18", 20") HHX X-Treme Crash (16", 17", 18", 19") Vault V-Crash (16", 17", 18", 19", 20") Vault Artisan Crash (16", 18")

BLUES From Louisiana 12-bars to Chicago shuffles and Anglo blues rock, the sound of the blues veers from good times to bad times… music for the moods. While brighter sounding cymbals of medium weights or lighter are the popular choice, darker tones are also ideal for creating a richer sound and increased personality. The louder the band, choose heavier, and/or brighter models… but it’s good to also make tone a deciding factor.

COUNTRY Today’s country music increasingly sees the drummer laying down bigger, deeper grooves and playing a greater, more dynamic role in shaping the overall sound. This calls for cymbals – whether bright or dark sounding – that speak with authority. Rides of medium or heavier weight, crashes from Thin to Rock, and hats ranging medium and up. Remember, the brighter sounds of AA, AAX, APX, and Vault V models are more cutting, darker ones like HH and HHX, offer increased tone.

LATIN/WORLD The many variations of Latin and World music suggest an open opportunity to play any cymbal series, models, sizes and sounds. With our El Sabor models, SABIAN was first to design cymbals specifically for latin drummers and percussionists. For many latin drummers the darker, more complex and jazzy tones of HH and HHX series cymbals are the perfect sound. And for both Latin and World there is percussion. Try the AAX Picante Hand Crash, or pieces including the Chopper, Alu Bell, and Thundersheet.

JAM Jazzy, funky, rocky… jamming is all about stretching out and taking the music somewhere new. A journey like that can happen with many sounds, but most popular are the Vintage Bright sounds of AA and Vintage Dark tones of HH.
