Focused on projecting bright, shimmering sounds.

The AAX Dark Crash is dramatically dark with a dry, definite decay. An impactful, moody cymbal, it creates a definite presence in any music.

AAX-Dark Crash

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Dark Crash Cymbal:

I just got my AAX-Dark Crash 18" a few hours ago. WOW! I'm impressed! Tonally it fits
right in between my K custom Hybrid 17" and my K custom Dark Crash 18" (med thin).
With the same medium wash of overtones(decay) as the K dark but in a different tone.
This cymbal sounds great, soft and smooth or bad and gritty, This cymbal has the stuff
to rock hard or jazz it up. I am typically a Zildjian guy( I own a few K series) I've had Paiste's
as well, but one cracked (20 years ago) so good bye Paiste. Cymbals are too expensive to
tolerate cracks of any kind.

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Dark Crash Cymbal:

I had just got an AAX performance set and wanted another crash. I palyed the 17 inch dark crash and it complimented my 16 inch stage crash perfectly. An absolutely awesome cymbal!!!!!

oooooooouuuuuhh.......

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Dark Crash Cymbal:

Where to start, I got this cymbal about a week ago, and I'm amazed. I got the 17", brilliant finish, I've played on other brilliant cymbals, they don't sound right, but the Sabian crashes are exquisite. I have an entire set of AAX now, and I couldn't be happier, its so loud, so smooth, and its just perfect, it just is. Go Sabian.

We're talking happiness...

By 

from Eugene OR

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Dark Crash Cymbal:

I bought the 18' on a whim one day and I have been more than pleased. Down right ecstatic actually. Dark, warm, smooth as butter, this cymbal is amazingly gratifying to play. I look for reasons to play it! I play everything under the sun and I have been pleased to see it fit in a jazz trio, to be able to crank the volume and knock it around with rock/punk gigs, and use it in a small hip-hop gig as my only cymbal. Might I recommend the tandem of the AAX 17' Stage Crash on the left and the 18' Dark on the right. It's an almost perfect interval for double crashes as accents or anything else you can think of. I'm very happy with this purchase. Very happy.

AAX Dark Crash

By 

from Ottawa, Canada

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Dark Crash Cymbal:

Unlike the rest of AAX, this cymbal is not half as brilliant sounding for obvious reasons. It almost sounds like a hand hammered. It blends nicely during more subtle parts in music. I wouldn't recommend using it as a main crash if you hit hard because it's so thin. However it still adds a nice variety to louder music if hit harder and used sparingly. Nice warm tone, smooth fairly long sustain. Probably better suited for jazz and softer playing but still moderately versatile.

nice crash

By 

from Lodi, NJ USA

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Dark Crash Cymbal:

I have the 16" dark crash. It's a fast, dry, explosive crash with fast decay. Great for a small fast crash on the side of your main crashes. I highly recommend the 16.
