Sabian 8" Chopper - Product Information

The Sabian 8″ Chopper is a one of a kind percussion instrument that creates fast, cutting bursts of white noise. Three layers of Sabian bronze are loosely riveted together and when struck agitate together producing a tense metallic sound. The CH08 Chopper from Sabian has already become a choice instrument for Mike Portnoy, Will Calhoun, and Rodney Howard. While the Chopper was designed to fit on any cymbal stand it can also be placed on a drum for crazy effects, or in place of a hi hat.

Cool

Comments:

This thing is heavy! At least for its size it's heavy. It creates a short and trashy sound, sort of like a ribbon crasher but lower and more versatile because you can adjust sustain by using the wingnut of your stand. It would make a cool auxiliary closed hi-hat for electronic music too. It's definitely overpriced for what it is (I'm sure they could make a B8 version and sell it much cheaper), but it does sound very nice.
