Sabian have introduced the 23" limited edition OverRide cymbal. With a production run of 200 pieces, the over-sized model was designed for hard rock drummer Jimmy DeGrasso, whose credits include Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, David Lee Roth, and current gig, Ministry.

The OverRide is handcrafted using B20 'cast' bronze and a Brilliant Finish. The heavy model weighs in at 9 lbs 12ozs and features an 8" Power Bell for combined HH and HHX hammering styles.

When asked about his new cymbal, Jimmy DeGrasso said: "The solid feel, dark tone, and great stick response make it ideal for rock. And the bell is huge! No matter how loud the band gets, with that 8-inch Power Bell it's impossible not to be heard. As a ride for rock and metal, this cymbal has it all, it's the best ride I've ever played."
