With its introduction in 2003, the SABIAN Xs20 series offered a totally new type of innovation: quality cymbals in premium B20 bronze at a very accessible mid-price point, making them ideal for the serious student and budget-conscious semi-pro player. Originally available only in Natural Finish, Xs20 — thanks to what SABIAN describes as 'overwhelming demand' — are also now available in Brilliant Finish. In addition to giving the cymbals a bright, professional appearance, the highly polished Brilliant Finish contributes to a smoother, glassier cymbal sound. "The demand for Xs20 in Brilliant Finish had become overwhelming," said SABIAN Master Product Specialist Mark Love, "so the complete series is now available in a choice of Natural and Brilliant Finish." "Xs20," he continued, "is crafted from the same special-formula B20 bronze as our professional series, like AA and AAX, and many of the techniques used on those cymbals, like high pressure, a proprietary shaping process and hand lathing is applied here. Xs20 is all about performance without the price," concluded Love. "It's a great value, especially in today's economic climate. You could say it's too good for its price. But while price is a key point of appeal, what makes Xs20 so unique is that combination of price and quality." Line-lathed on top and bottom, and with bright sounds designed to cut through in most music, Xs20 is quality-protected by the SABIAN Two-Year Warranty. This series is available in a complete range of models, including Rock weights for heavier players. A "Sonically Matched" Performance Set (14" Hi-Hats, 16" Crash, 20" Ride) and an Effects Pack (10" Splash, 18" Chinese") are also available in both Natural Finish and Brilliant Finish.
