  • Look at that!!!  Sabian got the possessive apostrophe correct!!  

  • That’s fun!!

  • Players’ Choice Sabian HHX ZEN CHINA in the lovely 20” size in great shape.   And you don’t have to spend $450 for it. 

  • As you can see this is Sabian’s answer to the Paiste NOVO China - however this ZEN China is actually Hand Hammered and MUCH THINNER than the Paiste Novo. 

  • The Players’ Choice were the winners of Sabian Cymbal Vote Program - this beauty harkens from before this 20” became the HHX.  

  • At only 1552 grams it’s very light, thin, responsive and definitely complex sounding. 

  • The inverted shape makes it perfect for crashing at the edge and easy to ride on the plain as an alternate ride.  

  • Sabian describes this ZEN China as:

    A unique inverted Chinese design makes this model easier to play when mounted flat. Traditional hand hammering is used, followed by additional HHX hammering to flatten out the playing surface next to the bell.”

  • There you go!   

  • A terrific dark and complex/trashy china that has a broad dynamic range. Great at low to loud volumes. 

  • Collectible EARLY Players’ Choice version.  

  • No issues.
