        Comments about Sabian AA Sound Control Crash Cymbal:

        I picked up a 14" in the traditional (not-bright) finish because I'm playing with a jazz quartet in a small venue, and my 15" Zildjian fast crash was just too loud.

        Despite the typical characteristic of the AA line, this particular cymbal (698g) is darker than I expected. It opens up very easily, even with the tip of the stick and even when played in the from the edge. The wash fades off quickly but being a cast cymbal it sustains for a good while, though quietly. The thinness makes choking the cymbal easy.

        The AA in traditional finish seems to be very close to the Zildjian A's. It fits in very nicely with vintage Zildjians and the A's. It fills a niche when a 15" crash is too big and 12" splash is too small.

        One, one other interesting not. Paired with a Zildjian bottom, it makes for a very smokey, washy, and dark hi hat - great for jazz.

        Great sounding crashes

        By 

        from Nor Cal

        Comments about Sabian AA Sound Control Crash Cymbal:

        I own two of these cymbals. One is a 14" and the other is a 15" and I just love them. When I got them the flanged edges threw me off, but it really gives it a good feel and sound to them. Perfect for all around any genre you want to play. Loud and clean sounding.

        Amazing

        By

        Comments about Sabian AA Sound Control Crash Cymbal:

        I have owned this crash for 6-7 years and it is one of my favourite cymbals. I am a Zildjian man all the way but I always plan in having one of these in my arsenal. I dont think Zildjian makes one comparable to it. Beautiful and extraordinarily musical!!!

        My favorite crash

        By 

        from Binghamton New York

        Comments about Sabian AA Sound Control Crash Cymbal:

        I bought one of these several years ago, and it quickly became my favorite cymbal in my collection. Sharp attack, crisp brilliant sound, and a quickly fading sustain. It's definitely a need-driven cymbal, if you want something that sounds brilliant and bright and will fade out quickly, look no further. I've tried other Sabian sound control cymbals and this is easily my favorite.

        Not Sure About It At First

        By 

        from Salem, OH

        Comments about Sabian AA Sound Control Crash Cymbal:

        Just got this new 14" sound control AA crash and was not sure at first I made the right decision on the purchase, I was wrong!! This is a great cymbal to add to your setup. The crash is very well pichted and sharp. Not much sustain but thats what I was looking for. I am using it as a splash/crash and wow!! It's great. Well worth it to add as an accent. The flanged edge does not tear up sticks to bad. Sabians have a very unique sound and are well worth the price. I will purchase other Sabian produces. Thanx Sabian, great job!!!
