2012 Players’ Choice Winners

by David Ciauro

Last year Sabian introduced twelve prototype cymbals within its network of existing series and let the public decide which models would make it into production. Top artists like Neil Peart, Terry Bozzio, and Dave Weckl demonstrated the cymbals via online videos, and drummers voted on their favorites. After eight weeks of elimination rounds, four models remained.

Sabian is conducting another contest for 2013, this time offering prototypes at certain locations for people to play before casting their vote. For now, though, let’s take a look at the Players’ Choice winners for 2012.
