Sabian releases OMNI and new China cymbals

Sabian, one of the worldís leading companies on cymbal making, is starting 2011 by adding four new cymbals to their catalogue. Two of them are part of the new OMNI cymbal models, comprised of AAX hybrid cymbals. Sabian is also releasing two new Chinese cymbals developed with Chili Pepperís drummer Chad Smith, the Holy China.

Developed with the assistance of legendary drummer Jojo Mayer, the OMNI cymbals are not a crash, nor a ride, but hybrid of both. The concept behind the OMNI cymbals was to find a way to create a cymbal with outstanding sonic contrast both when played on its own or with other cymbals. The OMNI cymbals feature a medium-weight center in brilliant finish and an extra-thin, natural finish edge for a highly musical tone and careful balance of frequency. Available in 18" and 22" models, OMNI is the latest cymbal innovation from SABIAN, and itís covered by the SABIAN two-year warranty.

  • The explosive new Chinese cymbal model, the Holy Chinas, feature a higher profile to raise the pitch, holes for volume and sustain, and a large, unfinished bell for cut and durability. They are a true mark of Sabianís promise of offering innovation to the cymbal market. The secret on the Holy China cymbals can be traced to its combination of 51 holes (19Ē model, 64 for the 21Ē) that create a smooth attack and enhanced volume without distortion.
