SABIAN, the award winning cymbal company, is sponsoring “The Most Warped Drummer”contest, an online competition at www.mostwarped.com. The contest gives aspiring musicians the chance to upload a performance video to be voted on by fans, for a chance to win a grand prize trip and all-access pass to the Boston Warped Tour stop on July 13, 2010, as well as a collection of SABIAN gear.

Musicians are invited to visit the site and upload a video, up to three minutes long, of themselves playing drums in one of five categories; “Drum Solo,”“With Music,”“Rock/Alternative,”“Jazz/Fusion,”and “Latin-Inspired.”Between April 21 and June 14, the public will be able to vote for their favorite drummers. The 10 videos with the most viewer votes will win cool prizes, and move on to the semi-final round of the competition. Top SABIAN artists on the Warped Tour will then judge the videos, and determine the grand prize winner.
