Sabian AA Metal X Ride
Design
SABIAN has introduced AA Metal-X, a range of aggressive, high-powered cymbals designed specifically for today's hardest-hitting, loudest and heaviest drummers. Handcrafted from SABIAN secret-process B20 bronze, the world's most durable and effective cymbal alloy, AA Metal-X delivers power through a uniquely new and innovative design that focuses on cymbal performance efficiency, not weight to create the power required to cut through today's high-powered playing situations. Loaded with new design concepts, this professional 'Brilliant Finish' range is definitely designed for today's power players.Commented Sabian master product specialist Mark Love:
"AA Metal-X gain power from their design, not the addition of more metal, so they respond faster and louder, cut farther, and explode with bigger sounds. This is done by maximizing the power potential of the tension found in the metal of AA cymbals, then releasing it with a design that not only accelerates the response rate, but boosts response power to a new higher level. Each cymbal is lathed, polished to a Brilliant Finish, then line-lathed a second time. The amount of pressure applied in that 2nd lathing tunes the structure of the cymbal sound and increases its effectiveness. AA Metal-X is not for the shy; it's for drummers who play with the sort of hard-hitting conviction that would destroy other cymbals."

Rad Ride!!!

Comments about Sabian AA Metal-X Ride Cymbal:

This is a very sensative ride. its has alot of ping with little resonance, it is very good for metal and heavy rock playing, i love the crashability and the paw "tang" sound of the bell. If you want to cut through then buy this ride!!!!

Comments about Sabian AA Metal-X Ride Cymbal:

I bought this cymbal based only on hearing it played by one of my favorite drummers. As soon I played it I realized how amazing it actually is. 22"

fair. not for everyone...

Comments about Sabian AA Metal-X Ride Cymbal:

I bought this as a second ride cymbal. My other one is of medium weight and has a nice spread of controllable wash. I got this cus I needed something with LOADS of cut. I have the big 24" model. It is ridiculously heavy and does have loads of cut with minimum wash, but the sound is very dark. While it cuts, it doesn't have the bright, shiny cut I was looking for, from either the bow or bell. Reluctantly, I am probably gonna get rid of it and go for a 22" AA Rock Ride or some such. I say reluctantly because it looks soooooo cool. The sheer size of it really catches your eye. The 24" takes no prisoners! But for me, who plays fairly loud rock music, it just ain't floating my boat. In summation, I reckon this is a fairly good cymbal but would strongly advise a "try before you buy" stance.
