At the Winter NAMM Show 2016, Sabian launched a complete new line of cymbals, called the XSR series. The complete range of XSR cymbals is replacing the existing XS20 line. The XSR cymbals are crafted from pure Sabian B20 Bronze using trickle-down technology from the Evolution and X-Plosion cymbals. With that, the Canadian company managed to keep this new line at an affordable price level as well.
Also, in 2015 Sabian remastered the whole HH series and included the Vanguard cymbals from the purchase of Crescent cymbals.

At NAMM 2012 Sabian announced the four winning cymbals of their Players' Choice contest. The HHX Zen China, AAX Aero Crash, HHX Click Hats and the AAX Stadium Ride got the most votes and have been added to Sabian's production line for 2012.
Sabian was founded in late 1981, on the banks of the St. John River in the tiny village of Meductic, New Brunswick. Here in this quiet peaceful hamlet in eastern Canada, we produce instruments played by some of the world's most famous players.
Playing the very same instruments as the garage band down the street, these artists have come to rely on the quality, durability and sound selection available within our various series. Drummers aren't the only ones choosing Sabian. Percussionists in many major orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, the Montreal Symphony and the Philadelphia Orchestra, as well as major marching bands around the world, are also playing Sabian.
When leading artisans from the ancient city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople) moved to the New World, they came to Sabian, bringing their ancient skills with them. Today Sabian is the only major company producing cymbals hand hammered in the ancient Turkish style. But we don't stop there. At Sabian we take special care to ensure every cymbal in our seven different series and collection of Signature models is skillfully crafted to meet superior standards.
We craft our cymbals from the purest, most durable bronze alloys. They are available in a wide range of models and sounds that speak to tradition and innovation, with a variety of series and models for every style of music.
The first cymbals bearing the ringed Sabian logo (denoting tonal grooves of a cymbal) emerged from our vaults in early 1982, when that initial pouring of hot, molten bronze was cooled, rolled and hammered out.
