Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy and Terry Bozzio shoot video for Sabian cymbals yesterday

UPDATE - 10/4@6:09PM: This article could possibly explain the reason for the video shoot.

Sabian is introducing four new cymbals at next year's NAMM show - and they want you to choose which metals they unveil.

From 17 October you can head over to and take your pick from the 12 new cymbal models Sabian has created as part of the Players' Choice scheme. At the site you'll be able to see Sabian artists such as Mike Portnoy, Dave Weckl, Neil Peart, Terry Bozzio, Dave Elitch and Stefanie Eulinberg playing the cymbals.

One cymbal will be eliminated each week until only four remain and these four will be unveiled at NAMM.

UPDATE - 9/23@1:42PM: Here's another pic that Portnoy posted (thanks Brad Hirsch of Used Bin Radio).

Yesterday Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy and Terry Bozzio were in Los Angeles to shoot some kind of video (likely promotional) for Sabian cymbals according to this tweet from Mike Portnoy that he posted yesterday.

Then late last night Portnoy tweeted the following accompanied by this photo:
