Not much you can't like about this cymbal. I've got it setup to my right as my "power" crash and it sure delivers. Has a slightly higher tone than the HH Medium Crash to the left so it gives me a nice dynamic when a song calls for multiple crashes. Really can't go wrong with Sabian, the trick is finding the cymbal sound within their lineup that suits your ears.

I mainly bought this because it was cheaper than the cymbal I would get for free in a rebate offer Sabian had going (15" AAXtreme crash, amazing) and I hoped it would both sound passable and fill a void in my set between 16" and 18". I was wrong. The cymbal sounds like its much, much bigger than 17". Imagine a ride you have ever owned that just did not sound good crashed, and that is the sound of my 17" AA Rock Crash. Fortunately, it was offset by a very good rebate, but I was still disappointed.

      my favorite crash cymbal, and the most durable one out there.

      By David Hatcher

      from yo mamaville, planet x

      Comments about Sabian AA Rock Crash Cymbal:

      this is my favorite crash ever. i got it for my birthday about a year ago, and it plays like brand new even still. i was a bit skeptical at first because of how much sustain it had and how deep it sounded, but then i manned up and started hitting the crapout of it and it sounds great when hit very hard, because thats what its made for! its a rock crash!! its super thick and durable, and when you mic it and record it, it sounds even better. i hope to get a 18 or 19 inch soon and also the matching 21 inch ride to complete the set, because these cymbals are just genius. this crash is for the heaviest of hitters, it lasts forever, and sounds very shimmering too. its no wonder that these are all that chad smith uses.

      warranty of course

      Comments about Sabian AA Rock Crash Cymbal:

      I buy all of my cymbals with a warranty just in case in breaks I have been doing that for years and thats good for me. I like Sabians more than Zildjians I think Zildjian has done poorly with their lines. I hope Sabian can save my life with more lines to chose from and then some.

      Beautiful Cymbal!

      By Sean-.goca

      from Council Bluffs, Iowa

      Comments about Sabian AA Rock Crash Cymbal:

      This is by far the best crash I have ever used! I got the 17" inch and it's outstanding! I have some Zildjian A's, K's, Sabian Paragon crashes, and this is by far my most favorite crash. It's very clean and warm! Get it! You won't regret it!

      AA 18

      By Mike-YZujd

      from Elizabethtown, PA

      Comments about Sabian AA Rock Crash Cymbal:

      This is a great crash cymbal for any kind of rock/heavy metal music. It has a great, full sound and a nice ring. It is great for crash-riding as well. You have to play it for a week or so to get it to really open up, but once it does it is amazing. It sounds extremely great live too. I'm buying the 17" as soon as I can afford it. The only downside is that these (like all cymbals) hit your wallet a little hard.

      Great cymbals

      By the ezv

      from Boyds, MD

      Comments about Sabian AA Rock Crash Cymbal:

      I have 3 of these - a 16", an 18", and a 19". the 19" is my favourite. These cymbals are very articulate, and project very well. The 19" can also be used for crash-riding. I would recommend these to anybody, especially for rock/metal.

      AA 16

      By Donnie-XU1A1

      from Moberly, MO

      Comments about Sabian AA Rock Crash Cymbal:

      This cymbal has a very bright tone that cuts through the music that you play and carries a sustain that helps enable its response and tone.

      My favorite cymbal durring heavy parts of songs

      By MetalHead-wHK9T

      from castro valley, CA

      Comments about Sabian AA Rock Crash Cymbal:

      If you want a great second crash that can add a great amout of heavy feel to a song this is cymbal is your best friend. It is a very good cymbal to use as a second cymbal but I recommend it only as a second because in my opinion it doesn't sound good when choked, which I do frequently. It also can add a very classic rock sound to any cover song. Whether it be led zepp, metallica, godsmack (shannon owns a 19' one of these, by the way) or your own stuff, this cymbal is awesome.

      Comments about Sabian AA Rock Crash Cymbal:

      I own an 18" natural finish crash. This baby can leave you deaf in an instant. This is prove that Sabian is the greatest cymbal maker on Earth. Don't look elsewhere if you want an excellent crash that can scream if you want to or sing for soft music this is what you are looking for.
