OVERVIEW

Dark, dry crash with high-gloss brilliant finish.

Dramatically dark with a dry, definite decay, this impactful and moody cymbal creates a definite presence.

AAX delivers pure, bright shimmering tones. Like stainless steel, AAX is cool, modern, and extremely efficient. Tap with your finger or thrash with a stick, Auto-Focus Response maximizes sensitivity, equalizes high- and low-pitch levels, and purifies sounds by filtering out conflicting overtones.


Ideal for studio and stage, this cymbal sounds great in any music. Order today!

18" Dark Crash Brilliant Finish

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

Just got this today and as soon as it came out of the box I knew I was in for a treat. The one I received is surprisingly sturdy for a thin model. Complex is the best summation for the sound.
Seems like carrying a 20" in an 18" cymbal. It's dark and lightning quick but, it has a bright wash that helps it cut through. I took it to practice and set it up next to my HHX Evolution crash(which anyone should own!). This created a dramatic and dynamic pairing since the two appear to be polar opposites. The AAX has a dark tone and bright wash to which the HHX is vice versa. Also, the Evolution has more sustain. This array gives me the diversity I need for our style of heavy, groove oriented metal. On the brighter side I can pair it with my Metal-X crash, or all three in the studio. This gives the Dark crash versatility. A great buy!
Deep, controlled and piercing.
It's a pro level cymbal for a reason.
A little steep but, that's the cost of quality.

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

I've had this crash for half a year now, and I love it. It sounds great, and you don't have to hit it hard for it to sound good...But you can, and it still sounds great and I have not had any problems.

I LOVE THIS CYMBAL!

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

I switched someone my electronic kit for an acoustic kit. The 18 inch came with the set. I LOVE IT! I use it as my main crash. I'm not sure how old it is, but thankfully not even a little crack has been made. It sounds so amazing, and if I had the money I'd buy a 16 in to go with it!

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

I play progressive metal, to Groove rock. I have played on a few modles over my enjoyment of playing Sabian cymbals. This cymbal has an quick open attack and a moderate sustain with quick cut. I like it I prefer 17' or 16' but I us as an layering cymbal to groove with in my material.

I own the 16

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

These cymbals might be the best crashes I've ever played. They are very responsive, whether hit lightly or hard. They have a nice dark tone, similar to the HH or HHX sounds, but without the high price. Great value and great blend with all sorts of styles (jazz, rock, metal, etc.). I've thought about buying a second one in a different size.

AAX convert

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

this is a very decent cymbal with good sound quality & tone. Lively without being brittle,can be subtle or demonic, it depends on your attitude. hit it soft and it has a light, airywash, hit it hard and it's a deep, dark, explosive tone that really cuts through the mix. I typically use Zildjian " K's " and this cymbal blends well with them, although not quite as smooth with a little less brilliance; but all in all a decent crash for the money, time will tell on durability. I've had mine six months with no problems. That's it ! Rock On !!

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

I bought the 15" Dark Crash 2 1/2 years ago I've used it as my main crash the entire time and beat the crap out of it... and it just now started to crack. I've loved this crash it is my favorite crash on my set and I am literally right now buying another 16" to go on my set.

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

I bought the 17'' at a local music store, and let me tell you, this is the greatest crash out there. I also have an 18'' AAX stage crash, which when both put together has the most interesting mix. This cymbal sounds great with other crashes also. It has a glassy sound to it that cuts through anything. Also im an extrememly hard hitter and I havent put a scratch on this thing. BUY THIS CYMBAL!!!!!!!!
