Neil switches to Sabian

Post by neilpeart_gal » Wed Jan 07, 2004 7:34 am

Here's the article in case any one is interested.

http://www.sabian.com/english/gopopup/i ... p?pageid=4

Also kind of a cool story. A friend of mine told me that he went to his local drum shop to get his Sabians and the dude at the store said they only had a few left. He couldn't figure out why there was such a run on Sabians lately. My friend said, "Haven't you heard? Neil Peart switched to Sabians!" :lol: :lol:

Yeah, I read this on the Sabian site, but it still doesn't answer my question. I'm sure if NEP went to Zildjian and said, "Hey, I want to design a signature line of cymbals," they'd all be like, "Duuuhhhhh, sure." So, I have to wonder if there was a falling out with the company higher ups or something. Ah, well, now another favorite drummer is playing Sabians (Terri Bozzio plays them as well). I have Sabian B8 hi-hats and a 16-inch crash, so I can understand his like for them (ug, I have a 20-inch Paiste ride...and I could sure go for a better one, it's kind of a dead sound).

You know that the only reason I use Sabians is because I KNEW that Beil was gonna switch to them. :wink:

NeilPeartFan does have a point. You should only buy a product because you like the way it sounds,feels,looks or whatever the case may be. Not because someone else you admire has it/them. With that being said though, it doesn't make Aerosmitten a bad player. Brainwashed maybe, but not a bad player.

Note the wink after her comment, guys. She chose Sabian in the first place because she liked the sound, not because she has prophetic powers and knew Neil was going to switch.

*sigh*

I think you need to re-read the post by Aero. She never said she switched because Neil did. She never switched at all. She started with Sabians and is keeping with them NOT because of Neil, but because she likes them.

HER POST WAS A JOKE!

Way back I used a few different Sabian crashes, I broke the s**t outta them. I like to call that my "Smashie Bashie Era", I don't hit like gorilla dunkies anymore. I also stepped on one of them and the thing inverted on me, weird. I also prefer Zildjians, and have all along. The Sabians I had came with the TAMA kit I bought.
