        Comments about Sabian AAX Studio Brilliant Crash Cymbal:

        After 35 years, one of my original Sabian crashes has finally cracked around the bell, but it surprisingly still sounds good. So I started going through all the levels of cymbals that Sabian has to offer for a replacement. When I started playing back in the early 80's, Sabian had just come on to the market and had only one level of cymbal, which was there best. I purchased 3 crashes a ride and 22 Chinese, along with a set of 15 inch hats. Everything is still in great shape except for the cracked crash. So I bought the 17" studio crash knowing that I was going to get a different sound from it being that I was using a 16" thin before. When I opened the box, the cym came in just a plastic beg, that was wrapped in a fabricated box with a lot of stuffing. The first thing I saw was the brilliant finish. Absolutely beautiful. It was a little bigger with a lot of printed "Sabian" ink covering almost half the cymbal top. Wasn't too pleased about that, but pales in comparison to the sound I am now achieving with this new cym. This new cym now gives me three levels of crash, which works in almost any situation. I do a lot of home recording through Pro Tools, and I must say that the old cym must have lost it's sound, because this studio crash sounds as crisp and clear as anything I have ever heard. Great cymbal.

        I love the. Aax series. I have a full set of the stage crash. Played them hard for 4 years now. I prefer there sound over ziljian a customs. Have a few ziljians left..replacing them as time goes along. These are pricey. But worth it!

        14?&17? are incredible?bright & glassy.

        By Graham976

        from Stow, Ohio

        Comments about Sabian AAX Studio Brilliant Crash Cymbal:

        I used to play a lot of AAX; everything was in the brilliant finish for that bright, glassy sound. I owned a few of these Studio Crashes?some at different times?they were one of my favorites out of the AAX. I owned the 16? for a while?nice crash, but I felt it was missing something. And I was disappointed with the 18? crash because it didn?t project. However the 17? crash filled my needs. It was incredibly bright, full, & had fast decay. I always thought the 17? was like the 16? & 18? molded together?the best of both worlds & none of their weaknesses. I also owned the 14? crash, which was very versatile within my set-up. It?s great for bright accents, but I also felt it had a nice warm shimmering sound quality?again versatile. These crashes sound great, respond with little effort, & are versatile with any music genre. Now with everything I?ve stated, its all opinion & preference?every drummer?s style & ?ear? is different.

        Perfect Crash

        By Nick-PANv0

        from Hong Kong

        Comments about Sabian AAX Studio Brilliant Crash Cymbal:

        This crash cymbal is the perfect bright sound with a perfect sustain. It is ideal for studio playing.I have the 14" and it's really nice. I will be getting a 16" very soon. This studio sound is a bit warmer than the other AAX products and that gives this crash a lot of versatility. I don't play metal or hard rock, I'm more of a funk, reggae and some alternative guy and this crash is ideal for me.

        AAX Studio

        By PearlSabian

        from Chicago

        Comments about Sabian AAX Studio Brilliant Crash Cymbal:

        I've always been A fan of Sabian cymbals and for good reason. I currently own the 14" in natural finish and it's great. It's a little darker than I thought it would be but it's still bright and cuts through just fine, great tone just a wonderful crash. Just a warning to hard hitters though it's thin so if you don't have good technique you might want to check out some of the other models but for me I can't wait to get the 16" as well.
