      A beautiful hybrid crash-ride from the Sabian Vault.

      Designed with the astonishing Jojo Mayer,the B20 bronze OMNI has a medium center and extra-thin edge, making it a great crash-able ride. It's just the kind of innovation you've come to expect from the Artisans in the Sabian Vault.

            Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

            First off this cymbal is not your typical ride at all!!!
            For a 22 inch cymbal, you would think it would be super duper loud. But it's not. WHICH is fantastic. This AAX has a center which is ride based and heavier. But the outside 6-7 inches are lathed. This lathed aspect brings the most beautiful and unique sound to fill the air.
            I play in a punk and band and go all out on it, using it like a crash. But I also play drums for my church and use this cymbal as my ride. It's so versatile. With the Sabian and AAX name it really holds up to my standards. It will not disappoint you!

                I just bought an 18" omni and it is as advertised. the 18" is very bright and fast when you crash it. it actually crashes brighter than my 16" A Custom Fast Crash. the 18" isn't ideal for a ride cymbal, but you can play different areas of the cymbal to get different sounds. all in all, i love it. i would recommend it to anyone looking for a crash/ride.

                      I've been playing drums for 18 yrs & i have had all kinds of Sabian cymbals. I recently got a 20" AAX X-Plosion crash & thought it was awesome. Then i got this 22" Omni & there is no comparison to any other cymbal. This thing has all u need. Honestly you could have some Hi-Hats, omni, & do a gig! Sabian gets my vote!

                      Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

                      I have the 22" and it's amazing. I have it mounted off my bass drum, and for a 22" cymbal, it's not as heavy as I thought it would be. That's due to the outer half being much thinner than the inner half is, which also contributes to the different sounds the ride can give you.

                      When riding on the outer half, it's a washy, darker, jazzy kinda cymbal. When riding on the inner half, it's a dry, quick, bright and funky cymbal. The bell will BLOW your mind away. The crash is loud but buttery (for a crash this size) and is more similar to a 19" or 20" crash.

                      I use it as my main ride AND crash (meaning after a drumfill, this is usually the crash I land on to come back into the beat), I basically built my cymbal setup around the OMNI, because it really does give me 5 different cymbal sounds at once. It's pretty awesome, and it only sounds better with age and play. I swear it's become "sweeter" over the past 1.75 years I've owned it.

                      Tried this out today at my local guitar center and WOW! Very crashable and very articulated bell, not to mention two different ride sounds depending on where you hit the ride. Defintly going to buy this when I get the money!

                      Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

                      I love this cymbal! I have been looking for a cymbal that I could ride and get a great ride sound from but also crash and get an amazing crash sound from. Every cymbal I tried could only do one of the two things I wanted it to do. With the Sabian Omni, my search came to an end. I bought the 22-inch model and I love the sound. The unlathed riding area is great and cuts really well and the outer edge is really thin for crashing. Sabian, you have made yet again another great cymbal!

                      My 18" omni is a nice additional voice to my cymbal set. I have mostly dark sounding cymbals, and the crash on the omni--though 18"--sounds like a 14" or 15" with an almost china-like quick decay. The bell is a bit quiet for full-stage playing, but serves nice in quiet settings. I don't think it's the be-all end-all 'only cymbal you'll need' it is advertised to be, but rather a fresh voice in the sometimes cluttered cymbal world.

                      How Did They Make These?

                      By Owen Liversidge

                      from Atlanta, GA

                      Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

                      I have now tried both of these bad boys out. First off was the 22", which is a great cymbal, but way too big and overpowering for me. That one is reserved for those wanting a powerhouse crash/ride, something that Bonham would have eaten alive.As for me, I was looking for something that would replace my current ride, not just be an addition. The 18" may sound small for a ride, but believe me, it's got some great punch! The ride part sounds nice and bright, although is deep and dry enough to work as it should, with a decent size bell. And when you hit the edge, the crash sounds bright yet washy, equivalent to maybe a smaller size thin crash (14"-15").As my title suggests, when you first look at the thing, you wonder how they constructed it, because somehow they melded together two very different types of metal - hand hammered bronze on the inside, and lathed on the outside. Yet, they join together seamlessly.This is simply one of the most versatile cymbals you will ever play, without having to compromise anything. Nice work, Sabian!
