‘High-Decibel’ Design Delivers Intense Cut for Rock and Metal Drummers

MEDUCTIC, Canada (January 2, 2008) – APX is the new professional cymbal series from award-winning sound innovators SABIAN. Featuring a ‘High-Decibel’ design that delivers a super-bright, intensely-loud, robust and focused response with extreme cutting power, APX can be heard in any style of music, though SABIAN’s Product Specialist Mark Love notes, “Its ideal for cutting through the raging guitars, heavy riffing and high-powered output of hard rock and heavy metal bands.” Top drummers already playing APX include Ray Luzier (Korn), Neil Sanderson (Three Days Grace), George Kollias (Nile), John Kelly (Type-O Negative), and Rich Beddoe (Finger Eleven).

“Our band has a really aggressive, guitar-driven sound, so I’m playing APX because they’re packed with power and cut through so loudly and clearly,” said Neil Sanderson, drummer for Three Days Grace. “They’re also really efficient, which means I don’t need to hit them hard, which lets me put all my energy into bashing my drums. With APX I’m never short on volume.”

“APX is designed to cut through any music at any volume, whether it’s a rock band blasting in a club, or a hard rock or heavy metal group playing to thousands from the main stage of the Warped Tour or OzzFest,” Love said. “This series has a ‘High-Decibel’ design, so the sound is absolutely intense.”

To create this intensity, SABIAN introduced new production processes that also result in a unique appearance for these cymbals. In addition to ride, splash, crash, hats, and Chinese in two sizes, the APX series also includes two O-Zone crashes that feature a multi-holed design creating fast, trashy sounds; high-powered rock-heavy Solid models for the most intense responses; and ‘Sonically Matched’ pre-packs in two Performance Set variations (14” hats,16” crash, 20” ride or 14” hats, 18” crash, 22” ride) and an Effects Pack (10” splash, 18” Chinese).

APX is quality protected by the SABIAN Two-Year Warranty. Cymbals are available individually or in specially priced ‘Sonically Matched’ sets.
