OVERVIEW

A crash that WILL be heard!

Explosive, full-response sound that's rich with bright, high-end tones for increased cutting power. High-gloss brilliant finish.

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.

I've had my 18" AAX Stage Crash in brilliant finish for almost two years, and every time I sit down at my kit I'm still so glad I bought it. For starters, it's extremely versatile. Not too thin, not to thick. I cover a lot of ground- funk and jazzy stuff to death metal- and no matter how hard I hit, it delivers. It feels soft to the stick but projects like a "rock crash" model, without the unwanted metallic overtones and extremely long sustain that sounds like a running faucet. It's pitch is just right, brighter than HH and HHX models, but smoother than the standard AA's. The price tag doesn't hurt for a professional-level crash. I'll honestly admit that this is my favorite crash I've ever owned and one of the best I've ever heard. Period.

This is from no newbie, been playing 43 years and had a lot of cymbals from B8s to Ks. I was going to switch from A Customs to 16" and 18" in these just to have new cymbals and something different to see and play. Glad I didn't get rid of the A Customs before hearing these and returning them. Not sure they even sound as good as B8s. Feel at least medium weight and might sound decent if you're a really hard hitter (I didn't try it) and don't mind breaking sticks on cymbals. Not even close to the league of Zildjians in my book. I also have some Wuhan traditional crashes that sound and play much better. Everyone else is certainly entitled to their own opinion.

    Comments about Sabian AAX Stage Crash Cymbal:

    I have the 18" brilliant version of this and it is easily my favorite crash. It works great as just a crash, but it really shines through on prolonged hitting (not rolls). Its got a great attack, really bright sound, and doesn't have too much after ring.
    Way better than the Xplosion cymbals

    Comments about Sabian AAX Stage Crash Cymbal:

    I purchased this cymbal a couple of months ago. Very explosive. Has a quicker decay and is a little darker than Sabian AA Mediums. Overall, a great cymbal!

    Pure and Shimmering...I love it!!

    By TBomb

    from Chicagoland

    Comments about Sabian AAX Stage Crash Cymbal:

    Awesome cymbal!! It sounds so amazing! It was the first good quality cymbal I got. I couldnt afford any before and once I got it I could hardly stand to hear my other cymbals. AAX is known for being strong and durable so the quality is great and its a little cheaper that the same size and quality Zildjian cymbals. Not that I have a problem with Zildjian, I plan on buying an Armand crash eventually, but $20 off is always welcome.

    ONLY THE BEST FROM SABIAN

    By Billy-Qxzq3

    from Nova Scotia, Canada

    Comments about Sabian AAX Stage Crash Cymbal:

    I owned this cymbal for about two years before it cracked and broke, I played it about everyday. I play a lot of metal, so i'm a fairly hard hitter. I recorded with it, played it on stage, and it never let me down. I was sad to see this cymbal break, but I replaced it with a Sabian AAX X-Plosion crash wich sounds great aswell.

    Good overall cymbal

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Sabian AAX Stage Crash Cymbal:

    I bought this cymbal 6 years ago and it has been my main hitter through many band practices, shows, recording sessions and the alike. It JUST finally cracked this afternoon. So if that is any testament to durabillity, I am fairly happy. It has good volume, great projection, and is a pretty decent buy for the money. However, if you are a hard hitter, do expect this cymbal to crack eventually. If you have heavy hands, consider a thicker cymbal, but overall I enjoyed it's lifespan.

    Sweet Crash!!!

    Comments about Sabian AAX Stage Crash Cymbal:

    I got the 16" . At first I hated but after playing it for a while I started to love it. It sounds great for its purpose (dont expect a ton of versatility). If you get just give it time and you'll love it.

    Comments about Sabian AAX Stage Crash Cymbal:

    Purely awesome cymbal, if your into any kind of rock its great. Just cus' it's really durable and has an awesome sound. My only advice is to NOT use coloured sticks, it just ends up markin up the cymbal.
