    I don't think there's a difference, the B8 Pro's are just newer. Correct me if I'm wrong someone.

    Give Birmingham Drum Centre a call (www.birminghamdrumcentre.co.uk), they just got a massive stock of Pro's in , and can get you any Sabian cymbal you want.

    You are wrong.
    All of the B8 lines have been around since the 80's.


    B8 - entry level crap.
    B8Pro - shiny entry level crap
    PRO - discontinued(though still available) mid-level crap.

    Sabian Pros are discontinued, but are much better than Sabian B8.
    The only thing acceptable in B8 is the hats.

    Nothing wrong with B8's They are probably the best of the cheaper lines.
    Just remember 99% of the audience cant tell the difference between a $50 B8 and a $400 HH.

    I actually think the hats are the worst in the B8 line, they sound too much like tin cans.

    I think the ride is the only thing acceptable in the line, decent wash and decent bell for the buck.

    The ride is def. one of the best models in the B8 ride. 18" crash ride was nice too.

    It's true that B8 and B8Pros are "entry level crap"...
    but I have some B8Pros and I like'em. nothing to complain about imo.
    I started out with them. added other cymbals from other series but I like the sound of the ones I have.
