Sabian's FRX Series Cymbals Mean You Don't Have to Hold Back

February 22nd, 2018 by Alex Howley

Sabian's new FRX Series Cymbals are a unique style of cymbal that solves a headache for gigging drummers: being told to play quieter. These cymbals feature quieter high frequencies, reducing each cymbal's harshness and letting everything else in a mix speak more evenly.

It may sound like magic, but we've heard these in person, and trust us - they save your ears. They sound substantially smoother and more blended at loud dynamics than traditional cymbals, and they still maintain a lot of the low end and body of each cymbal.

We had Sabian's own Rick Murray come to the shop so he could share a little bit about this series, and we recorded some sound demos for you to check out as well.

Hear More of the FRX Series

If you're interested in hearing more of the FRX series cymbals in more details, we've recorded a video of each cymbal in the series being played individually. Headphones recommended!


Alex started working here in 2015. He's a drummer, a producer, a Boston Crusaders alumnus, and a writer. These days, he makes all kinds of different music as a percussionist and an audio engineer.
