Precise, bright shimmering tones.

This Sabian cymbal pack includes a pair of 14" AAX Stage hi-hats, a 16" AAXplosion crash, a 20" AAX Stage ride, and a free 18" AAXplosion crash. The 14" AAX Stage hi-hats are highly responsive hats with bright, clean sounds that cut brightly at any volume. The AAXplosion crashes are bursting with bright, explosive attack and deliver penetrating definition with total presence and power. The 20" AAX Stage ride provides the ultimate balance of bright stick definition and controlled wash--highly effective and versatile.

Like stainless steel, Sabian AAX is cool, modern, and extremely efficient, with streamlined design and sound-shaping Auto-Focus Response. 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. AAX sounds are pure and accurate. Ideal in the studio, ideal onstage. AAX delivers the freedom to sound great in any music.

Comments about Sabian AAX Limited Edition Cymbal Pack:

These cymbals sound and look absolutely beautiful on any drum kit. The crashes have, in my opinion, the perfect crash sound when struck properly, and they both even have phenomenal bells. I am not really picky about my rides, so I don't have a lot to say about this ride other than it works for me and has a nice bell. I definitely love the hats. You can definitely make them bark and sizzle as much as you want. They are very versatile. Overall, these cymbals are more than worth the price.

Comments about Sabian AAX Limited Edition Cymbal Pack:

I absolutely love these cymbals. I have had them for a year and they sound awesome. These cymbals are bright and focused. I brought them to basketball game for pep band and they cut right through the band. For some reason my 18" and the14" rebate didn't have any wash on either side of the bells. Hats are nice and crisp, except my stand stinks. All of the crashes sound nice when hit together. The ride sings when you hit it. It has more sound than the Zildjan 22" K-Custom Dark Ride my school has. Great cymbals for any style.

      I purchased this set for my son who is a professional. Not only was he extatic with the gift, as it was the exact set he wished for, I ordered it on Friday, and received it Tuesday, Christmas Eve, literally minutes before he arrived for dinner. All told the most amazing experience I ever had ordering musical equipment. Bill is the MAN!!!

      Comments about Sabian AAX Limited Edition Cymbal Pack:

      I have played Paiste and Zildjian for many years. I was talked into this set by a pretty experienced drummer who has been playing for a long time. I prefer these much more than the others. I do like the Zildjian K series, but these are quite a bit cheaper line as the K's are comparable to the HHX's. These are great for Rock or Metal, but I could easily see a Jazz or Blues drummer using these in larger venues where some volume is needed. They have great attack and decay, they are definitely explosive. I like the brighter tones for a lot of fast playing where darker tones I like to have as accent. I do have the 21" Stage ride where this pack has the 20". Also, I liked the Xplosion hats much better than the stage, but I could see the stage hats being more useful in a situation with not mics and seem like they will take more abuse. The AAX darks are great add on pieces to this pack. Amazed by the sound.

      Comments about Sabian AAX Limited Edition Cymbal Pack:

      This set is AMAZING!! After all the research i done this is the set for the quality and price. The crash's are so explosive and loud, yet good, they'll cut through anything. The 18" is one of my personal favorite, its very loud and balanced. The 16" has a lot of attack to it for its size. Althought i still prefer the 17" then the 16" it is still amazing. The 20" ride is alos one of my personal favorites, its more likely a crash-ride but a good crash ride though. It has a smaller bell but it still cuts through and the crashing part of it is amazing, 2 in one cymbal lol. For the hi hats, its good, very loud and has a nice chick sound to it. This set is a very good set, i give it a 5/5. You just can't beat Sabian quality and the price on this set is amazing good, not to expensive to leave you broke well maybe if your on a budget. But at least you will have very good cymbals. AAX is the top of the line cymbals, i would stick to this brand for a very, very long time. Get them quick before their out!!!

          I ordered drums, hardware, and cymbals and was trying not to spend too much money. After reading some reviews I decided to order this cymbal pack. I wondered if I should have spent more money on cymbals until my order arrived. After playing them, I was so relieved. They really do sound good.

            Comments about Sabian AAX Limited Edition Cymbal Pack:

            I love these cymbals. The hi-hat has a very clear and distinct sound closed and has a very bright sound that is not overly-trashy when open. Many hi-hats I have played on have a very trashy sound when open, but this has just enough of a trash sound but still remains clear and distinct. Closed, it sounds very clear and has a darker tone, which I like a lot. The ride has a clear sound. It does not have a tin-like sound, which I like very much. The bell is awesome, not quite as great as if you were to get a dry-bell ride, but I think this bell is the best of all of the lathed bells i have played. It is sharp and cutting and noticeable above the other cymbals. The ride is crash-able, which I love for accents. My favorite part about this pack are the crashes. These are by far my favorite crashes, they pack quite a punch! Loud, explosive, fast, cutting, and with the perfect amount of sustain. They are great for faster and harder music, so i think they work great for hard rock or especially metal. These would also be good in standard rock or pop, but I would not get these if you play jazz or other types of refined music. Overall, this is a great set, perfect for the stage as they are made for, but they also work for the studio very nicely. Hope this helps!

            I love these things! Been using this very same cymbal set for about five years now.
            They look almost new when you give em a nice shining and they maintain their shine even when dirty.
            the logos are long gone, but that can be fixed
            These cymbals are very versatile.
            Great value, top quality.
            BUY THESE THINGS!

            Pros and Cons:Pros:16" and 18" xplosion Crashes are amazing! Big attack, Bright and responsive, medium decay,very loud yet musical in tone...could not be more impressed! Cons: None. Pros:14" Stage Hats sound very good in a small room while practicing...good stick definition and "chick" when ya slap them together. Good open and partially open shimmer while joggin' on the double kick. Cons: weak sounding in larger rooms with not much cut against a Marshall tube half stack. Top "hat" is a little thin. For Stage, I would recommend the xcellerator hats, but these work OK for rehearsal/practice or small venue. 20" Stage ride: Pros: Nice, bright ride with decent stick definition, good bell, good crashability and tonal balance. Cons: A little too much wash and the decay is a little too legnthy for my taste but all in all, it's a good, balanced ride. I would rate this cymbal pack as an 8.75 out of 10.

            I like these cymbals a lot. They are fantastic for all the things I play although there sound might not be traditionally used in the styles I normally play.

            Crashes are bright and cut right through. The ride is phenomenal.

            Comments about Sabian AAX Limited Edition Cymbal Pack:

            Since I started drumming I`ve always wanted one of them shiny golden cymbals ,so I used some money left from a school scholarship to buy it and will never regret, these are the first "pro" cymbals I`ve bought and played (exept for my HHX O-Zone crash) and this is probably one of the packs with the most friendly price I`ve ever seen, the fact that the 18 crash is free seems like a really bad joke.To begin with they sound great, they all have this musical glassy sound and has a nice ear friendly pich (I tried them without ear plugs and they never came to that ugly ZHIIICH sound that really hurt your ears).Hats: Has a nice "chick" sound and a nice open "shizh" sound.Crashes: Tap them lighty and crash them hard and they still have this glassy cut that stays consistent. The bells on the crashes seems to be unlathed and give a nice clean (you guessed it) bell like sound that I enjoy.Ride: I`ve allways wanted a ride that sound like the opening of Morbid Angels song Rupture, a ride that really rides, even when you pound on the double bass the ping sound cuts smoothly through.The ride has a a washy sound when you ride it thats also very musical, I enjoy it because you can have the ping sound and also that wash that lies a bit under the ping too.What I didn`t like: Since I live in Norway the bolt that held the cymbals in place were nigh impossible to screw out since no matter what kind of tools I found I couldn`t get it loose and I had to file down a wrench for an hour to make it fit (a lot of tears and sweat involved) plus I didn`t want to scratch my new shiny cymbals.And if the ride had the same unlathed bell that the AAXplosion crashes had it would have made for the perfect ride for my taste.But in conclusion I really love these cymbals, they are musical and sound beautifull, they have inspired me to play more than anything and I look forward to all the fun they will give me.THANK YOU SABIAN!

            These are my first professional cymbals and I can't say enough good things about them. My favorite is the 16" Xplosion Crash. Cool but explosive and overall responsive. The Stage Hats have a wonderfully defined chick and they are loud when open. The 18" Xplosion crash is great for riding and heavy accents. The Stage Ride has an excelent ping and decay. It would have been great if the bell was a tad larger but it is perfect as it is. This is the best deal for these professional level cymbals, buy em!

            I was worried about playing these in low volume situations until I used them live. I just use a jazz stick or 5A on them and it does just what it says on the website. Hit at low volume it still sounds like a crash instead of a drummer trying to play a cymbal quietly. The 16 inch still opens up when crashed with an index finger. I use to use Zildjian and I use to hate Sabian.Not Anymore.

            I recently suggested my church buy this pack for our praise band. The price is good, but the quality was outstanding. I am a "K" custom man, myself. This is an outstanding pre-pack. The hihats are dry, yet bright. The crashes explode and decay rather quickly and the ride is articulate, yet has a gentle crystal like cushion.

            This is the 2nd set I've purchased from MF, for use on my home kit. I use all AAX & AA on my touring kit and they perform flawlessly in all situations. Studio or live they shine through beautifully. At first I was a little disappointed with the ride because it bell didn't have that "ping" sound I was looking for. But after spending some time with it and listening back to it, it has definitely grown on me. I am forever getting comments and feedback from audiences, but the best comment I've gotten on these cymbals is from a drummer who said "That's the sound of money!"... you can't beat that. Great value, great cymbals. You'll love em!!

            These cymbals sound phenomenal. The hats are very crisp, the ride sounds great no matter how you play it, and the crashes have great attack. I haven't had them for very long, but B20 is really durable so I plan on having them for awhile. Bright and modern, just like Sabian claims, but you could probably get away with playing most genres except maybe jazz, bluegrass, country western, etc, in which case, I'd go with Sabian Hand Hammered. Can't wait to record these babies. Great job Sabian! AAX for Life!

            Comments about Sabian AAX Limited Edition Cymbal Pack:

            i bought this cymbal package and im amazed how great they sound, specially the 16 in crash, i love that cymbal so much. These cymbals are thin (well not that much) but you don't have to hit hard to get good volume out of them. The crashes live up to their name because they really explode! very nice sounding and cut thru guitars with ease! and they have fast decay which is a plus. I've even seen pro drummers use these cymbals (George Kollias and Flo Mournier and Scott Ellis use AXX cymbals in their kits)(All Death Metal Drummers!) And you're getting the 18in Crash "FREE"! (which is a great cymbal! ) Oh, and I almost forgot, they sound great at any volume so they are really flexible with that, "tap with your fingers, or thrash with a stick"! (or something like that) ITS TRUE! The ride is a little "ringy", but once you get use to that you'll love it, but i think it works well with jazz or something like that, but hey i play death metal with it and haven't found a problem yet so its good.
