Comments about Sabian AA El Sabor Crash Cymbal:

I've only played this cymbal for a few days, but it's a ten fold improvment from the cheap Zildjan ZBT i've been using for a couple of years, i feel guilty for ever using that thing. A bright and explosive sound, it's what a crash is all about. The tone is pleasing and sustain is balanced. I'm glad i found this one before a spent over $200 bucks on a different crash.

    Truly one of a kind!!!

    Comments about Sabian AA El Sabor Crash Cymbal:

    It's the smoothest and mellowist crash I've ever played. Terrific for contrast and accent. It's just enough for attention but not too much on the latin side. It's the perfect blend.

    Comments about Sabian AA El Sabor Crash Cymbal:

    I've owned this AA El Sabor 18" crash (natural finish) for nearly 9 years now. I play mostly metal and I'm not a light player. I hit hard and have cracked a few cymbals in 10 years of playing. It's my primary cymbal for crashes. This cymbal is a prime example of what an 18" should sound like. It's fairly heavy and has a great bell. It could be used as a crash/ ride in most setups. The bell is that good. I use the bell on this as well as a 20" AA Metal-X ride to get different textures to the music.I have not heard another 18" with the character, smoothness and tone of this cymbal. Right next to my 18" K dark Zildjian, it makes the Zil sound cheap. Seriously. I have grown to love AA's HH's and HHX's. I bought the 16" brilliant version of this cymbal last year and although it's a good cymbal, it's no comparison to the 18" natural.

    Comments about Sabian AA El Sabor Crash Cymbal:

    My girlfriend bought me this crash and I LOVE it!!! It has a great crisp sound perfect for all types of rock. Don't be mistaken by its name El Sabor, its good for all types of music. Its also good for hard hitters if its your thing. This was the first of about 15 different cymbals, and I knew this was the one. My girlfriend really loves me!!!!

      Comments about Sabian AA El Sabor Crash Cymbal:

      Not only one of MY favorite crashes but also a favorite of my experienced father, who was a pro keyboard player and now gigs regularly at leisure. My brother and father (bass and keys) both normally claim that a crash is a crash and there are little to no distinguishing features in any of the higher quality cymbals that set them apart. This has changed their perception with a full bodied classic sounding crash that works in low or high volumes and has an exceptional bell. Has yet to have been damaged after three years of never leaving the cymbal stand... no more to be said except worth the money.

      perfect cymbal

      Comments about Sabian AA El Sabor Crash Cymbal:

      I purchased this cymbal about 5 months ago and no dents or cracks or anything have occered. This is just one of the many attributes of this phenomonal cymbal. It has a brilliant attack, and a shimmering sound, with a fairly short sustain. This cymbal is perfect for any style of music and works well for accents, and I've found that riding on this cymbal can add a very unique sound to a song; especially since I play metal(riding on it may not work for all styles of music.) I would recomend this cymbal to anyone, and I am a faithfull zyldjian player, but I love the tone, attack, length of sustain, EVERYTHING about this cymbal. I am not exadurating with the rating I gave it.

      Best cymbal ever, for me anyways.

      By Allotic Drums

      Comments about Sabian AA El Sabor Crash Cymbal:

      I have been drumming for years, and this is honestly my favorite cymbal. I recently cracked one, and tried to upgrade to the more expensive Zildjian fast crashes, but they were too clangy. Same with the Sabian HHX Evolutions. I couldn't find any cymbal that had the sweet crashing "bottle of sparkling water hitting pavement" sound that I wanted.the flanged edge offers GREAT control.I LOVE this cymbal.
