MGR/'s review"Sabian Pro Sonix"

Sabian Pro Sonix Performance Set
I've been playing drums for about 4 or 5 years. My range of interests in music is far too broad to be discussed here....


I love the sound of these cymbals, particularly the crash. When you nail those crashes full force, they have a sound that goes on forever.....I love it!! Also the sound has different levels of intensity depending upon how hard you hit it. Some cymbals may only give you maybe 2 layers of intensity that sound good when you hit them, the pro sonix give you about 4 or 5 layers, meaning they sound great at even the most quiet section of a song to the most intense. The cymbals also have an excellent sheen and are quite nice to look at...

Unfortunately, they are extremely fragile cymbals, and can't handle intense abuse from the user. I don't consider myself a hard hitter, (except for maybe when I'm getting into what I'm doing ) but the problem is, I managed to destroy 2 16' crashes just from routine use. Cracks start to appear in the lower corners. If you're a pounder like Dave Grohl, you might want to shop around a bit more to find something else that can take a higher level of use.

Due to the fact that I managed to destroy 2 crashes tells me the construction quality is a bit low for a cymbal. They seem to be a bit brittle. I also have a 20' Pro Sonix Ride and that holds up just fine. The Pro Sonix cymbals would be great for home or studio use, but I would not suggest them for heavy gigging.

These are beautiful sounding cymbals, but all that beauty comes at a price. Unfortunately that price happens to be the build quality. Since Sabian no longer carries this line, they are getting harder to find....I love these cymbals, but they cannot take the level of abuse that I put out.

I use Pro Sonix cymbals for 6 months and I am very happy!
Beautiful and powerful sound I was looking for a long time. I'm really happy with the crash that has a very clean and powerful and hi-hat that has a clear and deep. Unfortunately, the ride has a sound too shrill for my taste and not the height of the other cymbals of this pack. I strongly encourage you to buy these cymbals.

It's been three years since I played with these cymbals and I'm delighted ...

Before this one I had Paiste 302, and what a difference ... It is a powerful and well ...

It is true that the splash is not very strong, but in terms of crash I do not have the same impression ... The ride may sound a little too acute.

With experience, I think I would do the choice, finally I would hesitate, perhaps with the XS20 ... Besides, I think Sabian stopped production of Sonix Pro ...

Sabian Pro Sonix Performance Set
It's been about 2 years since I played with.
Acute they sound, the hi-hat is quite clear, the bell of the ride is really powerful but the same ride in it is not bad: you hear it a lot if you play normally, but if we play harder, y ' too much ... For cons, the splash and crash are not strong trs ...
For those who like the cymbals sounding acute, the report qualitprix is ​​good, but for others adconseiller.

Sabian Pro Sonix Performance Set
Neither good nor bad, these cymbals are stagnating in the middle of the hierarchy. With a sound that remains plutt amateur, however, good when used for decision in the studio. Unsuitable for public benefits. Ideal for a first set, because the price is reasonable and the quality price ratio INTERESTED. The best choice as to AA, I advise most budgets levs to choose those AA or HH and HHX for the wealthy. For beginners, the B8 is IDAL
