What is Cymbal Vote

This is the old text from the old site, no longer applies:

Cymbal Vote allows drummers from around the world to determine what new models SABIAN will introduce in 2013. SABIAN has long been know for its innovation in cymbals, and frankly, each year we develop more cool new ideas than we can introduce as new products in a single year. So we decided to let you decide! Here at CymbalVote.com you can see the 12 cymbal candidates, and we have also included dozens of videos featuring great drummers like Mike Portnoy, Ray Luzier, Tony Royster Jr., and Tomas Haake. These drummer give you the chance to hear the cymbals in several musical settings and even hear their comments on how each performs. Music theory concepts are also covered here right now.

Want to hear these cymbals for yourself? A limited number of Cymbal Vote Tour stops have been scheduled around the world. Check the Cymbal Vote Tour page to see if the cymbals are coming to your town.

The votes from drummers from around the world will decide which 4 cymbals become the new models for 2013 and get to wear the Cymbal Vote crown. Voting is open September 1st through October 31, 2012. The winners will be announced at the NAMM show in January and available in local retail stores soon after that. You can vote for your four favorite cymbals once a day, everyday, while voting is open. You can also register to win some great prizes and each additional vote is another entry, increasing your odds of winning. So don’t miss your opportunity to Listen, Vote and Decide on the new models as part of Cymbal Vote 2013.
