Darren Mathiassen - Sabian

Posted by on 19 March 2011

I chose Legacy series cymbals by Sabian. They are the best all round cymbals in my arsenal.. So good in fact, that my sound man went out and bought himself a set! A perfect balance of smokey dark tones and icy shimmer.. They play equally well from large stage to small club gigs.. I never leave home without them.

Sabian HHX Legacy 14" Hihats - Very responsive pairing delivers clean, crisp stick articulation and solid pedal 'chick', with warm, tonal color.

Sabian HHX Legacy 17" Crash - With its dark response, this highly responsive model can play loudly but its always musical.

Sabian HHX Legacy 18" Crash - With its dark response, this highly responsive model can play loudly but its always musical.

Sabian HHX Legacy 21" Ride - This light, crashable model delivers stick definition, wash, and darkness with an unlathed 'control band' limiting spread.

Sabian’s Signature Fierce crashes are an essential part of my setup, to me they sit somewhere between a crash, china, and an effects cymbal.. They are excellent for riding and crashing.. They also make crispy sounding stacks!

My Sabian Signature Encore cymbals are dark, dry, and dynamically controlled.. Always an excellent choice for the studio and any environment where I need extra control and articulation... They have a unique and unmistakable sound, and an aesthetically pleasing matte finish.
