      OVERVIEW

      An oversized ride cymbal with the sharp definition of a ride and the bright expression of a crash.

      The Sabian AA Bash Ride is essentially a lighter crash-ride edition of the Sabian Raw Bell Dry Ride with a the small-bell design to help control the sound when you need a ride or just open up and bash away on it for that huge, stage-eating sound. The cymbal has a quick wash, delivers clear articulation at all volumes and finishes with warm, dry sustain.

      This cymbal has a traditional finish and is available in a 24" model for those who love big cymbals.

      Stick Definition, Bashability, & Subtlety

            Comments about Sabian AA Bash Ride Cymbal:

            The Sabian AA Bash Ride's pronounced stick definition is a special feature. This cymbal doesn't have a bright ping or a broad wash, nor is it an especially explosive crash, as some reviewers have exclaimed. There's a wide range of timbre from the edge of the cymbal to the lip of the bell, and instead of pronounced wash, ping or crash, what you have is a lot of subtlety. If you start bashing away, you get waves of darker as opposed to bright wash, with lots of gorgeous stick definition. The Bash Ride is more on the ride end than the crash end. It's a thicker cymbal than what I was led to expect from the majority of the reviews, and this gives it its range of subtlety. The bell is very crisp and clearly defined. The Bash Ride provides a terrific contrast, for example, to my 18" crash/ride, which is very much on the crash and bright washy ride end of the spectrum. If you're looking for pronounced stick definition & lots of subtlety, as opposed to extreme characteristics, then this is a terrific cymbal for you. If your lightest touch will stun a gorilla & you want to get bashing away, you'll have rich powerful waves of sound. And the price is as lovely as the quality of the product.

            Comments about Sabian AA Bash Ride Cymbal:

            This is a great sounding cymbal. It is bright, has an explosive crash sound and a great crispy bell. What I really love about this cymbal is the versatility you get. This cymbal is light which allows for an great crash sound that doesn't ring for days. My only gripe is that while riding it can get a bit washy. Sabian did a great job combining a crash/ride, one of the best you can get for the price.

                Easily my favorite ride Sabian has ever made. I got the 21''. My band plays a lot of hard rock and my other and plays a lot of smooth jazz.. This ride is perfect for both. I can use it as a great regular ride for jazz but I can open it up and just beat the hell out of this thing. The bell is very precise. All in all if you want an incredible ride that you can use for all genres get the Sabian 21" AA Bash Ride

                    I've owned this ride for a couple months now. I got the 24" by mistake, actually. I had asked the drum rep to place my order for the 21", but she placed it for the 24". At first, I was going to return it, but I tried it out and was blown away. It is the exact ride I've been searching for. Great articulation, beautiful stick sound, not too pingy, good wash without being overbearing, nice dry bell, and a GREAT crash sound. I've never been happier with a single cymbal. I play jazz, rock, metal, pop, latin, etc. I have yet to find a genre or situation in which it doesn't sound great. I cannot recommend it enough. This isn't JUST for bashing. There's so much more to it than that.

                      Comments about Sabian AA Bash Ride Cymbal:

                      Just bought the 21" model Bash Ride a few days ago due to my 21" Zildjian cracking after being dropped by a friend. I play in a pop punk band and usually do a lot of wash riding and crashing on my ride. This cymbal is perfect for that role: not only does it have the power to stand out when I crash on it it also sounds amazing being used as a traditional ride with a great bell. Overall a great cymbal, no complaints from this one happy customer!
