    Default The Return of the El Sabor

    I play drums at church twice a week, and I have been switching up the cymbals every few months. So here is what is there (all Sabian):

    AA Bash Ride 21
    AAX Xplosion Crash 19
    AAX Xplosion Crash 17
    AA Xplosion Crash 16
    Paragon Hats 14

    I was playing the AA El Sabor 18 at church as a crash and wash ride. But Sunday I brought it home. My hardware box is the heaviest thing I have to move, so I decided to use the following so that the box will be lighter.

    AA El Sabor 18 (as a crash and a ride)
    AA Thin Crash 17 (sort of heavy for a thin crash)
    XS20 Medium Hats 14

    Using this setup makes my hardware box lighter because I will only use two stands other than the hi-hat and snare stands. Peace and goodwill.

    I really like the Paragon hats, but I also really like the XS20 hats. If I had any doubts about the XS20 hats, I would get something else. Peace and goodwill.

    I remember hearing good things about the El Sabor. It was marketed originally as a Latin music cymbal but was actually a terrific rock crash or light ride.

    Here is a video of my playing the El Sabor as a crash and ride. I am also singing. This was recorded with a cell phone. www.facebook.com/cajun12357/videos/1315606771904496/

    Does anyone have an opinion about how the El Sabor sounds as a ride in the video link above? If you do not care for my singing, that would make two of us. I would not be offended about any comment about the vocals. I try to get out of singing, but the others want me to. Peace and goodwill.
