Excellent Crash Cymbal

By Greg Johnson

from Boston, MA

Comments about Sabian AAXplosion Crash Cymbal:

When I first bought this cymbal (20") I was a little hesitant. It was my first AAX cymbal and I am used to AA's and Paiste's. I wanted a cymbal that would cut, but still be sensitive since I play very dynamic music. In addition, it needed to work as an accent cymbal as well as a crash-ride. Well this cymbal pulled it off; it is bright, dark, cutting, and sensitive all at the same time. The cymbal, when struck fairly hard, produces a rich, bright shimmer which decays at a moderate rate; perfect for the louder, more open parts of a song. When it is struck with a softer hit, the cymbal's dark undertones come out without overpowering the music. No matter how soft this cymbal is hit, it always opens up. As for crash-riding, it works perfectly. Because of its ability to open up so easily, there is no need to hit the cymbal hard to get a good crash-ride sound. It makes that "wall of sound" noise with little effort. I only have one issue with this cymbal; it is not as loud as some of my Paistes. For some people who play the loudest of music, this may be an issue. For my band though, it cuts through just fine. Overall, this is a great crash cymbal and will fit in with almost any rock group.

Incredible!!!

By Connor

from Denver, CO

Comments about Sabian AAXplosion Crash Cymbal:

I purchased this cymbal from a local retailer a few months ago, and all I can say is AWESOME!! I love the explosion you get, hence the name "AAXplosion." I use Sabian cymbals exclusively, and this just proves more that they are the best.

Multi-Purpose, Good Sound

By Rhys Ferrusi

from Fenwick, Ontario

Comments about Sabian AAXplosion Crash Cymbal:

I bought this cymbal about 3 months ago, in the 19 inch size. All I can say is WOW!!! Not only do you get a nice cutting crash that stands out above the rest, but if you ride on it near the middle of the cymbal; you get a washy bright ping from it that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy :D Now don't get me started on the bell, whenever I hit it a tear drops from my eye, so much definition to the bell, very very very nice cutting ping sound to it. An all around good cymbal for your louder music, definitely good to mix this cymbal with other AAX cymbals.

Incredible Crashes!

By Michael-19ZXY

from Detroit, Michigan

Comments about Sabian AAXplosion Crash Cymbal:

These crashes are simply incredible. I have the 16" and the 18" and they couldn't be a better match. The sheer "explosiveness" and dark cutting tone has made me the envy of every other drummer I encounter in 'battle of the bands'. I'm impressed with Sabian for excelling further than its toughest competitor, Zildjian. Sabian obviously has an amazing research and development department, and I hope they keep cranking out new and amazing cymbals like these for years to come.

One word...Beautiful

By ....l°sÃ¥

from Swainsboro, Georgia

Comments about Sabian AAXplosion Crash Cymbal:

I have an 18" and a 19" AAXplosion and they are simply beautiful. Dark, shimmering, and ultra responsive, these cymbals cut without any problem. The sustain is just a little to drawn out but nothing too drastic. Once you play them, you won't care. BELIEVE ME! Forget the Zildjian A's and A Customs. The AAxplosion is the way to go if you're looking for a dark crash with warm accents, the AAXplosions are just what the doctor ordered...

unique sound

By Ryan-MNp8x

from Lodi, NJ USA

Comments about Sabian AAXplosion Crash Cymbal:

I have the 18" AAXplosion crash. This has an incredible, devastating sound. It penetrates all other sound even when hit very lightly. It truly sounds like an explosion.

awesome crash

By sam-_geno

from lynchburg, va

Comments about Sabian AAXplosion Crash Cymbal:

This crash sounds so beautiful. It explodes when you crash it. I have a 16", and it has a bright, glassy sound, but gives a whole lot of power. It responds very well to soft crashing. This is my favorite crash, and I wouldn't give it up for anything.
