      one of my favorite cymbals

      By qcnervousrex

      from Moline, IL

      Comments about Sabian AA Chinese Cymbal:

      I have owned my Sabian AA 18" since about 1987. It was one of the first Sabians cymbals I ever bought, along with a 18" crash and 19" crash/ride. I have lots of others now, but these are still my 3 favorites. I play the crash/ride and the china at every gig.I also have an 18" Wuhan China, and the two could not be more different, as the Wuhan has immediate decay, an the Sabian rings out with a beautiful trashy wash. They complement each other perfectly. Other than the fact it is missing the "Sabian" imprint because I clean it regularly, it looks brand-spankin' new after 23 years.

      I like it, but.....wait for it

      By Rift Tripper

      from California, What Whaaaat!

      Comments about Sabian AA Chinese Cymbal:

      I bought the 16" Sabian AA chinese cymbal, and its great in many ways,looks nice, feels solid, and holds up great during play. My only complaint is pretty much based on opinion. It wasnt really the sound I was looking for coming out of the china, but I decided to keep it any way. If your considering this cymbal go for it, but one bit of advice, try to find a friend or audio clips online so you can hear how it sounds before you buy it, because it may not sound the way you think it does.

      Great Cymbal, Great Cost

      By SirPlorkenblog

      from High Point, NC

      Comments about Sabian AA Chinese Cymbal:

      Got this cymbal (18") free of charge last year from the concert band. Brand spankin' new never played. Even if I had paid full price for it, I would still have bought this cymbal. Plays great, great attack, not too ringy. Bends somewhat easily, but taking good care of it will prevent that, plus it is rather thin. Wouldn't trade it for anything. except maybe a 20"

      Not bad.

      By mesdeftool

      Comments about Sabian AA Chinese Cymbal:

      This is a decent China. I have a 16". It's brighter than most Chinas I have heard. It could just be this particular China. No two cymbals are exactly alike.However, it's got that washy oriental sound one would expect in a China. I'll hold on to it until I beat the ever living crap out of it.

      Absolutely Superb!!!

      By Pineapple Man

      from Ontario Canada

      Comments about Sabian AA Chinese Cymbal:

      I love this cymbal! It's loud and brash, and cuts through the band with ease. It isn't as trashy as other Chinas available, but that's why I love it so much! Excellent finish and craftsmanship. Get it, you will NOT be disapointed! :)

      The best.

      Comments about Sabian AA Chinese Cymbal:

      I have owned this cymbal for about 4 years now and it only just now cracked. I'm not necessarily a hard hitter, but when you start playing this cymbal it just enervates you, so I beat the crap out of it. It sounds great for everything from accents to prolonged china-abuse and cuts through nicely. Amazing cymbal, I'm ordering another right now. Get it!

      Great China !!!

      By Sabian Owns!!

      from Florida

      Comments about Sabian AA Chinese Cymbal:

      This is a great china cymbal. It has a really bright tone and a very trashy sound. I prefer the AA over the AAX because the tone of the AA is more full and lasting than the AAX. A little expensive and the cymbal is quite thin, so hard hitters be carefull with this cymbal. Sabian manufactures the finest cymbals ever made this a fine piece of work. Keep up the good work Sabian!!
