SABIAN Cymbals Set-Up Builder
I guess this has been around for a while, but I only recently discovered it and I’d wish I knew about it when I was in the market to buy a new Drum Set with Cymbals.
It’s the Cymbal Set-Up Builder by SABIAN.
All you need to do is:
- Create your set-up from scratch OR
- Choose your favourite Sabian artist template, OR
- Choose a Genre template.
Then you can move things around, edit what drums you prefer and best of all, you can save your Sabian Cymbal Set-up and play the kit so you can find out what each cymbal sounds like. The only downside with the site is that you can’t share your set-up easily with Facebook or Twitter etc, and I’ve noticed from a few blogs out there that people have had trouble working out how they were supposed to share it, when someone at Sabian stated they needed to screen grab it and resize with MS Paint! What type of response is that?!? Anyway, all negatives aside, the website is still pretty cool.
Here’s a pic of my current kit: TAMA Superstar with a variety of Sabian Cymbals.
On the Cymbal list, I have:
AA Splash 06″
AA Splash 10″
AAX Fusion Hats 13″
AA Thin Crash 16″
AAX X-Plosion Crash 18″ (This is my favourite cymbal on the set-up. If you’re looking to get one at a good price, check out zZounds)
- Neil Peart Signature Paragon Ride 22″
Here’s the set-up of my favourite drummer, Jose Pasillas II:
Awesome cymbal set-up, but bugger setting it up every gig unless you had a roadie to do it for you! Read my earlier post about shrinking your Drum Set and Cymbals could make you be a better drummer.
