"Solid budget cymbal pack!"

I purchased my Sabian B8 Performance pack when I needed to replace my XS20's. When I bought them they came with a free 18" Thin Crash and a 10" splash. The hi hats were really chunky when I got them and I really wasn't a fan, so I took the 14" crash and used it in place of the hi hat top. Really sweet chick sound and a much better open sound. The 18" crash is really rich for the money. I was happy with it. The splash is pretty nice, I took splashes off my kit all together though so I don't have too much of an opinion on that. When I did use it though it cut pretty good. The ride was okay, but it had that overly bright clunky sound, so I wasn't a fan. Luckily my XS20 ride was still in good shape. The 16" Crash is actually pretty nice as well. For as cheap as they are, they sound pretty good in a mix. On their own they sound pretty discouraging, but once you are playing with other people they sound pretty freakin' good. I still use them for now.
I was looking at other cheap cymbal packs by Zildjian, Meinl and Paiste and I found the deal with the free 18" crash and 10" splash too nice to pass up. I played the Zildjian ZBTs and I found I only really cared for the hi hats. So they solidified my decision a little bit. I would definitely recommend the cymbals to someone looking for a good cheap set. Especially if they have the splash and other crash tossed in for free. They have lasted a pretty long time, so I'd have to say that the build quality is nice. I use them very regularly and I have only made a small crack on the 16" crash. Zero complaints. Good cymbal pack for sure.
