Thin 18″ China with Volume and Bite
Raw, dark, and trashy, the Sabian B8X 18″ Chinese cymbal texturizes grooves and breakdowns with a bit of old-world ornamentation. It packs plenty of volume for metal and rock. Yet its musicality and dynamic range equip this china for funk, orchestral music, and beyond. At its price point, the B8X 18″ Chinese makes a solid option first china for students and beginners. And in the right hands, we feel many drummers will put this cymbal to use in ways that far exceed its class.
