Crafted from pure SABIAN B20 Bronze using techniques learned from crafting award-winning Evolution and X-Plosion cymbals, XSR delivers unpresendented sound and performance at a price designed to fit your cymbal budget. SABIAN 18” XSR Suspended Cymbals are a great addition to any program looking for the combined value of great sound and smart price. 18" XSR Suspended Cymbals work well in band and orchestral compositions that do not require a great deal of volume. Generally, XSR cymbals are higher in pitch than other B20 series, and have slightly slower response time. The main difference between a suspended cymbal and a crash cymbal is the longer sustain in a suspended cymbal. Therefore, 15" through 18" suspended cymbals are a smart choice because they have the versatility for use as crash cymbals.
