Crash, then dissipates

    Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

    Nice fast crash. The Sabian AAX is a good product line, and if you're looking for a crash that explodes then dissipates quickly, this is it. I have the 16", and it does what it's supposed to do. The crash is bright and powerful, but there is a underlying, dark gong sound. How do you get a bright crash with a dark undertone? I can't figure that one out, but if you listen for it hard enough, you'll hear it. Nonetheless, the bell is nice; the crash is nice; and, the crash tapers off quickly, nice. I have it set up to compliment my AA thin crash with a heavier, brighter sound. I also use it a lot when recording. I like to crash my ride, but the sound engineer can't control all the lingering overtones on the ride. So, I moved this cymbal next to my ride for recording, and it all works out. And, the dark gong sound? You can't hear it on the recording. It is washed out by the crash.

      Really compliments my 16" HHX Evolution. Next will be the 18" Fast crash to compliment my 18" Evolution crash.

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      I bought the 16" version. I use this Crash for R&B, Pop, and Rock. The response is true to the AAX line: Full and Explosive. The sustain is short. That's why I wanted a "Fast Crash". I have it set opposite my 16" AAX Stage Crash. The Decay on the Fast Crash is about a quarter of the sustain on the Stage model. Now, I have the ability to choose.

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      I own the 14" and I am loving this cymbal. It's got a nice bright glassy tone, perfect for accents but not too bad for washriding either. I am planning on getting the 16 AAX Xplosion crash too.

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      They have it listed at 159 for a 19". That's why I bought it and am not looking back! Great sound.

      Sabian AAX Fast is GREAT!

      By portnoyfan521

      from Somerville, NJ

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      I have the 18" version and it is remarkable. The tone is brighter and crisper than the regular AAX-Plosion. Both series are great but this model truly stands out. It's has a short to medium sustain, and full crash when hit hard. But it is soft enough to crash on hard beats. It is loud when needed, and soft when needed. It is very durable, and will last. I tried the 16 and own the 18 and I am sure the other sizes are the exact same quality.

      I got the 16" version of this. Best cymbal I ever heard. Got the 18" too, but didn't like it as much. To each his own, but the 16 frickin' sings!

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      This is the best crash I have ever heard. I own the 16" model and I love it I can't wait until I get all AAX crashes I still have some B8's at this point. If your considering buying a crash test this one out before you buy you will love it!

      Simply awesome. Cuts through any mix, the bell is very loud and big. I've giged with it, and it's the best sounding cymbal I have goes great with my Paiste 2002 17 inch crash. Overall, GET IT! Amazing cymbal.

      best fast crash

      By Only Mapex

      from carthage, N.C.

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      I bought the 17" model of this cymbal and it is awesome. Ive been playing it for about 6 months now and no sign of cracks or dents. It has an extremely fast decay which is what I wanted. When you hit it you hear A big sound and then fades away quickly. I feel like it might be a little pricey but if you can save and buy it like I did it will be worth your wait!!! Sabian never fails me.
