You Need the Chopper
How would you like to elicit a white-noise effect from something that plays like, and (sort of) looks like, a cymbal? Mounting conveniently on a cymbal stand, the Sabian Chopper is constructed of three bronze discs (two of which are propeller-shaped and loosely riveted together). It produces a tight, focused sound that you can inject into your music anywhere you need a unique and raw-sounding accent. Use it instead of a hi-hat for some seriously funky techno-slap. Mike Portnoy has a Chopper in his setup. At Sweetwater, that's good enough for us. Check out the Chopper, from Sabian.
