Sabian has launched its second annual cymbal promo – Cymbal Vote 2012 – which gives drummers the chance to evaluate and vote for a dozen new and often unusual models. As the promo continues, the cymbals are gradually narrowed down to a final quartet to be released to the public in 2013.
But the company has added an entirely new angle this year by taking the cymbals on the road, so that drummers can actually test them out in person before making their selection.
But even if the tour bypasses your home town, you can still go to the Cymbal Vote 2012 website to check out videos of top drummers like Mike Portnoy, Tony Royster Jr, Ray Luzier, Karl Brazil putting the cymbals through their paces.
What’s more, folks over the age of 18 who participate in the voting will be entered in a contest to win some of this year’s featured cymbals, including the grand prize of all 12 original models.
