Sabian Stratus Cymbals Shopping Review

Sabian Stratus cymbals are a professional quality series designed for modern drummers. These are professional pieces of kit crafted from B20 bronze and featuring STRATUS high impact hammering. B20 bronze is an alloy of copper and tin, with a ratio of 80% copper and 20% tin. It's also known as "bell bronze". The alloy from which a cymbal is made has a major influence on its sound. The resonance and decay of the Stratus cymbal is especially noticeable in a recording studio. Adding more tin to a bronze alloy darkens the tone, and leads to a sonically richer-sounding cymbal. Due to the intense and meticulous process for crafting the Stratus Hi-Hats, these cymbals have a full range of frequency and sonic versatility. They have clear articulation, a warm wash, and a musical spread.
