Sabian Chopper 10 In. #4645dt

Sabian Chopper 10 In.The Chopper is an innovative multi-application percussion effect that delivers quick, tightly focused white noise accents and rhythms. Comprised of three bronze discs–two of which are cut into propeller-like shapes–riveted loosely together, the Chopper is a totally unique playing experience for drummers and percussionist. When played, the three discs agitate each other and produce a distinctive raw sound.The Chopper looks simple but is a very complex instrument designed to play accents and rhythms with equal effect. It does this through a combination of etched surfaces and a special die-cut design that lets the three discs vibrate and agitate together; creating the short burst of white noise that makes the Chopper so special.Already the choice of Mike Portnoy, Will Calhoun, and Rodney Howard, the Chopper fits comfortably on stands in any drum or percussion set-up. A Chopper can also add a distinctly different flavor when used in place of an X-hat, or laid on a snare drum to create a funky techno-type slap. The Chopper is quality protected by the one-year Sabian warranty.

Sabian Aax El Sabor Picante Hand Crash Cymbal 18 In. #5619dl

Sabian Aax El Sabor Picante Hand Crash Cymbal 18 In.The Sabian AAX El Sabor Picante Hand Crash cymbal is designed specifically for percussionists. Available in 16″ and 18″ sizes, this innovative model features three very distinct playing surfaces — two for playing with stick, one for playing by hand. The raw, non-hammered bell is ideal for playing the clave. The unlathed, medium-weight center area is a dry ride area. And the lathed, extra thin outer half is highly sensitive, making it ideal for slapping hot, shimmering sounds by hand. Its name–El Sabor (‘the Flavor’) and Picante (‘hot’) combine to define its very unique character.Commented Sabian product specialist Kevin Laskey: “Though it was designed for Latin players, the Picante Hand Crash is a cymbal for percussionists playing any style of music. And while it is named ‘Hand Crash’, the center half and bell of the Picante Crash are for playing with a stick.”Karl Perazzo, who evaluated Picante prototypes with Santana for over a year says, “The Picante Hand Crash is the hottest cymbal I’ve ever heard. It’s great that Sabian continues to design sounds for every type of player. This Picante Hand Crash is a good example of just how creative they are.”Inspired by such legendary percussionists as Perazzo and Richie ‘Gajate’ Garcia, the Picante Hand Crash is the latest El Sabor model from this award-winning cymbal maker. With its appearance and sound shaped by high-density AAX hammering and half ‘n’ half surface lathing, the Picante Hand Crash is individually hand crafted by Sabian artisans using SABIAN B20 ‘caste’ bronze, the world’s most durable and musical cymbal metal.All Sabian AAX cymbals are available in Natural and Brilliant finishes and are quality-protected by Sabian’s one-year warranty. 16” or 18″medium center/extra thin edge
