Players decided about Sabian's Winter NAMM 2012 releases

For its 2012 product offering, Canadian cymbal manufacturerer Sabian decided to let drummers choose which cymbal models should be made. With Players’ Choice, Sabian provided a forum that allowed drummers from around the world to choose its product offering for 2012. It’s the first ever instrument manufacturer to do so. In addition, Sabian brought together a group of its top endorsers to play the new cymbals so that its customers can choose.
Innovative Vault artisans from Sabian have been asked to develop a list of 12 exciting new cymbal models – Rides, Crashes, Hats, Effects and more. The cymbals were shipped to a studio in California, where a group of top Sabian endorsers – including Mike Portnoy, Dave Weckl, Neil Peart, Terry Bozzio, Dave Elitch and Stefanie Eulinberg – were filmed playing the cymbals in all styles and genres. Viewers were able to watch video online and vote to eliminate one cymbal each week. The top 4 cymbals were announced as Sabians new product offering at the Winter NAMM show 2012: The winners are HHX Zen China, AAX Aero Crash, HHX Click Hats, and AAX Stadium Ride.
