Manufacturer's Description from Sabian

The Sabian 12″ 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 CH12 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.

About Manufacturer

SABIAN was founded in 1981 when Robert Zildjian - one of the world's great names in cymbal making came to the conclusion that drummers needed a better choice of cymbals. Unsatisfied with the quality, the sound and the very relevance of the cymbals being manufactured at the time, he opened SABIAN in the small eastern Canadian village of Meductic, New Brunswick.

Since that time the SABIAN Vault has become a global center for cymbal and sound innovation. And that same SABIAN innovation has resulted in an unprecedented level of choice from the most diverse offering of cymbal design ever available. As a result, modern drummers and percussionists can choose from models that range from vintage to modern, from dark to bright, from traditional to downright eclectic.
