I don’t know which is better… Sabian has thinner cymbals which mean they are more durable but the hi hats are thick, which is good.
But A Customs have great sound but are pretty thick.
I don’t think you can say categorically that Sabians are thinner. Some models are beefy and some aren’t. They have this good way of describing cymbals as bright, dark, vintage or modern
. You can apply those ideas to anyone else’s cymbals. If you’re playing heavy and hitting really hard then the nuances of the cymbal matter less and the heaviness helps. Anybody agree?
