SABIAN announces the global launch of STRATUS at PASIC
Internationally acclaimed cymbal maker, SABIAN, announced the global launch of its STRATUS cymbal series at the 2023 Percussive Arts Society International Convention.
STRATUS captures the quality of darker, more complex cymbals, but still incorporates a hint of shimmering brightness, which makes for the perfect tone. The combination of SABIAN’s B20 Bronze with STRATUS high-impact hammering, is the key to the rich, dynamic sound these cymbals produce. Featuring clear articulation, a warm wash and musical spread, STRATUS captures the entire sensory experience, with cymbals that feel as good as they sound.
“At its heart, STRATUS is a professional-quality series that strikes the right balance between mainstream and professional performance in a beautiful design,” said Stacey Montgomery-Clark, SABIAN’s Vice-President of Sales & Marketing. “There is not a cymbal series on the market that sounds even remotely close to STRATUS at this price point. We are so excited to bring this exciting new series to drummers everywhere.”
The result of two years of intensive research and development, STRATUS was created by the SABIAN team alongside customers, artists, and industry insiders from across the world, with the goal of catering to the evolving needs of the modern drummer. It fills a clear gap in the market and is a continuation of SABIAN’s long legacy of industry leadership and sound innovation.
“As a company we have always challenged the status quo to create products that redefine what’s possible for all drummers, from those playing on the biggest stages to those jamming in their basements,” said Mark Love, Director of Research and Development. “This new series is no different. It introduces a new sound to our product offering—one that will surely help our players to take their sound to new heights.”
