    Comments about Sabian AA Series China Splash:

    I've been considering getting one of these for years but always put it off. Finally broke down and got one on a whim. There are very few videos that do this bad boy any justice. It's loud and it bites hard yet still has a slight gloss to it. It has a very unique sound and I'll probably be keeping one on my kit from now on.

      Comments about Sabian AA Series China Splash:

      This is a sweet little China Splash that really sounds like I hoped it would. Very bright splash with a china flavor. I play alot of PROG and I also have a 6",8",10",and 12" splashes that I use often. This cymbal is unique from all of them and I use it for that one little stand alone punctuation that I need at the end of a fill at a break or to punctuate the snare.

      great splash

      By leonard-NWqqO

      Comments about Sabian AA Series China Splash:

      u do have to get some springs for this little china splash, but, when u do they sound amazing, i have the 8" and 10" china splashes next to my 12" china, they have a high pitched sound that seems to sound like a splash with the trashiness of a china, great for quick accents

      Sabian AA series china splash It's hardcore

      Comments about Sabian AA Series China Splash:

      I just picked this up. Even though it may not sound as good when played alone without guitar, when you are playing with a band it totally rocks. I have a set of Zildjian ZBTs and even though those are not as high quality as the china splash they do sound good together. This splash sounds better when played slightly louder and harder, but no too hard. I play softer than most people I know, but I still think that this cymbal could take a beating. If you want a splash with a little trashier sound, but also something that can be used in different musical situations, this is for you.

      Comments about Sabian AA Series China Splash:

      Just got the 8" aa china splash and it sounds awsome! I use it in the middle of fills along with my 6" and 10" splashes. It's pretty loud and durable as well. this is a must have.

      Comments about Sabian AA Series China Splash:

      I have had other drum company's along with others of the sabian line and by far these are the best. These have that sweet sounding crisp china. Again that includes the sabian line. Great value. These are a worth while purchase

      Great cymbal

      By DraxEQ Paramedic

      from VA

      Comments about Sabian AA Series China Splash:

      I was surprised by its sound and how it reverberates. It sounded awesome. What sucks about it is you have to hit it really hard to get the sound you want, which is at risk of possibly cracking it, and nobody wants a cracked cymbal, unless they want that trash can sound in a song....? Also, the cymbal itself mutes too quickly andd gets to the point where it rings and doesn't distort in less than a second. Tat doesn't sound too great.Good price, good quality, but you need a little strength to get this one sounding like a cymbal instead of a triangle.
