SABIAN Ltd. is pleased to introduce HHX Evolution, a range of drumset cymbals inspired by and collaborated on with SABIAN endorser Dave Weckl. Featuring the jumbo hammering; lathed surface; and raw, unlathed bell that contribute so greatly to the HHX concept of 'Tone Projection' - a combination of traditional tone and modern projection - Evolution models were created around Weckl's desire for his cymbal playing to 'follow the path of least resistance'. These Evolution models, with their glossy Brilliant Finish, respond to the slightest touch, making them extremely easy to play. An innovative 'Total Response' feature has been designed into HHX Evolution to boost its sensitivity and eliminate the need for players to 'dig' the sound out of the cymbal.What Dave was looking for
Commented Weckl "HHX is the essence of what I was looking for. It has that warm tone I like so much, but it also has brightness in its high end. For me it's very important to have the right mix - a balance of both. And that's what Evolution is all about. It retains the low end, we've brightened the highs, and we've increased the sensitivity so that the lightest touch of a stick sets it off. But it's not just a matter of being responsive, Evolution puts out its total sound at all times; even at very low levels. That's what I was looking for: cymbals that offered the path of least resistance, so I could focus on what I wanted to play, not how I was going to have to play it.
Nothing will make you sound better more suddenly that a Sabian. Order today.

Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:
I have had these hi hats for about six months and they are honestly the best I have ever played with. From heavy rock to jazz triplets these hats can play do it, and do it well. While they command a higher price they are well worth it. They are considered dark, but they have a fantastic chick and slosh sound that will cut through any music withouth being abbrasive. They are very smooth and buttery. In my opinion these are the best hi hats on the market and I will never sell these!
