For 10 years i had used a 21" full ride by a Swedish manufacturer. It was an amazing cymbal but extremely loud. When it finally cracked i needed something to tie me over so when a Sabian 20" stage ride came across my path so i picked it up with the intention that "i will use this until i can afford another like my last one". boy was i wrong! I didnt fall in love right away but the more i played it the more i leaned what a good ride should sound like. Not and overpowering wall of sound whenever you hit the chorus but a blending lift that fits in with the rest of you kit without taking over. Its medium in weight so it can be crashed. The bell looks a bit small but doesn't sound it. As the the name STAGE RIDE suggests you could think it would have a dominant commanding sound on stage. i have found quite the opposite. To be honest it is very well mannered cymbal. My only complaint is that it may be a little too well balanced. Such a perfect blend of ping, wash, crash, gong, bright but in no way sharp that it almost lacks character...

This ride is, without a doubt, very nice and high quality. Although I would not choose it as my first pick. First off, it has a lot of overtone to it, and it is not very pingy. The bell is very small and weak, providing a very minimal ping. This cymbal would probably work best for jazz players, but for those heavy/death metal players, you could definitely find a better choice.

Great Rizide yo!

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

Alright look this cymbal is simply amazing. I'm in a post hardcore/hardcore band and I think it sounds great from listening at my point behind the kit, and my two guitar players, singer, and bass player also love it! A lot of drummers like to ducktape the bottom of their cymbals to stop the overtones but this cymbal realy doesn't have much, it's great it cuts through every instrument with great sound and tone. I strongly reccomend it!

One of the best rides I've ever played on

By LEXI

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

The description provided already is quite accurate. I feel very content and confident now having such a versatile ride on my kit. I'm not limited in any way. It sounds like a blend of different ride elements in one. Very bright, long sustain with incredible control. Whether you hit soft or hard or in between, this ride sounds like it's equiped with a built-in e.q. which you control. It's not overbearing unless YOU want it to be and mixes into the music. Very clear and consistent and not too pingy. If you like punchy,raw, deep, bell-like rides you may want something thicker, like AAX metal. I find using the butt end of my stick still closely offers the same results and will prevent the cymbal from ringing out as much. Can't beat the Price!!! 9 out of 10.

Best Ride Ever!

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

I had to find something to replace an old Paiste Dimensions Power Bell Ride I was borrowing at the time. This ride is the best ever. I love the wash. It doubles as a strong, versatile ride, as well as a really good crash ride. I recommend this ride, as well any other product in Sabian's product line. Sabian rules!

        Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I went through many rides trying to find the sound I was hearing in my head. I had many fancier models from Zildjian and Sabian. This is the one I heard someone playing (the 21" natural finish), and went, thats it! That's the one. It just has the sweetest sound with wood and nylon tips, excellent crashability, decent bell, and is very dynamic. I use it for funk, jazz, and rock. Such a simple looking cymbal, no fancy raw metal or lathing and hammering, but trust me, this is the one.

        Pretty fantastic cymbal

        By Nate Ray

        from Phoenix, AZ

        Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I bought the 21 inch natural finish Sabain AAX Stage ride and it sounds very good as a ride cymbal and can be crashed on quite nicely. I play in a pop-punk band so i crash on it a lot. Souds amazing. All of my Sabian AAX Stage series cymbals have worn well and still sound good after all of the pounding. Great price for the quality and performance it gives!

        Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

        This is VERY good Ride, But its kinda quite. The bell is amazing if you play metal type music. and also you gotta know how to hit this thing, if you hit it to hard your sticks will brake like crazy.

        This is the best ride I have ever used. It can be used for mostly any type of music. It has a good ring after the hit. The bell has a nice ping to it. I would strongly recommend this ride.
