Sabian Announces New Limited Edition Hard Rock Override Cymbal

United States
New 23-inch Cymbal Designed for Rocker Jimmy DeGrasso

MEDUCTIC, Canada (December 27, 2007) – SABIAN has introduced the 23-inch Limited Edition OverRide cymbal. With a production run of 200 pieces, the over-sized model was designed for hard rock drummer Jimmy DeGrasso, whose credits include Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, David Lee Roth, and current gig, Ministry. Weighing in around 9 lbs 12ozs, this heavy model features a raw 8-inch Power Bell and combines intense HH and HHX hammering styles for a sound that is dark and rich, but solid and cutting, according to Mark Love, SABIAN’s master product specialist.

“The 23-inch size and overall design make the OverRide ideal for drummers wanting powerful stroke definition and a super-loud bell,” Love continued. “This cymbal is designed to be loud and deliver consistently crisp and clear strokes, but not sound overly heavy. In fact you can even accent by crashing on the edge.”

“I played SABIAN many years ago, but I switched back because this is the one company that not only knows how to make great cymbals, they design amazing sounds,” DeGrasso said. “This OverRide is a great example of that innovation. The solid feel, dark tone, and great stick response make it ideal for rock. And the bell is huge! No matter how loud the band gets, with that 8-inch Power Bell it’s impossible not to be heard. As a ride for rock and metal, this cymbal has it all… it’s the best ride I’ve ever played.”

The Limited Edition OverRide is handcrafted by SABIAN artisans using B20 ‘cast’ bronze. It is available exclusively in Brilliant Finish, and is quality protected by the SABIAN 2-Year Warranty.
