Well, according to my brother,they´re like this:
First of all, there´s Zildjian.
Next, there´s Paiste and Sabian.
Then is the rest.

The most expensive is Zildjian, next goes Paiste and then Sabian.

I prefer Sabian rides and crashes(the B8 series kicks @ss), and Zildjans for my high hat. It's all a matter of opinion, really.

I've been here since 11/06/01 and I've never been a GTUer of the month. It's 08. I rock.

Well.. of course B8 is good, but compare them with Zildjian´s K series.
Nothing more to say

Depends on the sound you want I guess. I have nothing against Zildjan-it's just a sound preference for the Sabians. I like the sustain on the ride and the attack balances well, I think. It's like an Ibanez or a Jackson on guitar-depemds on what you want personally.

I have to admit I've never cracked my Zildjans. Can't say that about my Sabians...

Have you had B8s? I think they are on par sound-wise with anything zildjan has.

my mate who is round my house says:

''b8s are good for begginners and so r the pro's. The aa and the hh range are good....But if yu want a good cymbal that will last you ages, buy zildgian because they have the biggest ranges of cast bronze cymbals and could be suited for all styles. No zilzgians r bad. the hhx evolutions sabiens so sound quite nice but cost more than some zilgians. If you play all styles, use zilgian a or k. ''

ok some more info from my drummer:


''pasties are quite good for the money. You could even try meinl amun for hi hats and rides. They r similar to the zilgians master sound range.''

Thank you
