Sabian announces new branding!!!
It's not been announced yet but yes, they're renaming some models and have some new logo designs. I'm pretty excited to see their new stuff; the last few years they haven't disappointed (unlike another big cymbal company...).
From what little I gathered, it's a blue finish instead of the dark grey finish of the limited edition. I could be incorrect in that it's now in the Artist Pallete catalog but that's what it looked like to me. Plus, that shell and sound profile are different enough from what Tama currently offers, that they will sell a snare or two, and not just to Deftones fans.WOW!!! Really? I've been searching for one of those for over two years now. Is it identical to the limited edition one or are they fiddling the specs, do you know?
I said the same about the drum sound in their Dynamic Kapur and Fat Spruce demo videos from last year. In person the drums sound really good. I don't know what's going on with Tama and their videos, maybe they do three or four takes but don't spot-tune in between takes, and take three was the drummers best performance, but not necessarily the drums.No offense Tama guys, but the video I heard of these drums is pure crap.
Aren't the HHX cymbals hand-hammered? Whereas AAX are machine-made. That is likely the reason for the price difference.I have often wondered why the HHX costs more than AAX - seems like this should be one line of modern machine made cymbals with bright and dark models.
