        I was very happy with my 19 inch that I used for about 2-3 years. It cracked during the warranty period and I got it replaced and then recently, the 2nd one cracked. I used the 19in to my left, mostly for accents so it wasn't my "main cymbal". I decided to go with the 20inch as my main cymbal since I've been breaking the 19in AA Metal-X's too frequently lately and thought I would try something different. I bought the 20 inch on a whim, without trying it in the store, hoping that being bigger, it might last longer. I played one gig and have decided to send this back. Simply, its just too much. This cymbal is beyond bright and cuts like no other. Very shimmering and loud to the point of overkill. It drowns out my 18in AAX stage crash. However, even though its a 20 inch, the cymbal is not very thick and I can see this thing breaking very quickly. Overall I was disappointed with the 20 inch. If you are looking for something on the heavy side that you can crash ride with, this is the not the cymbal for you. However, the 19 and 18inch versions would great additions to your kit so long as they don't get abused.

            Comments about Sabian AAXplosion Crash Cymbal:

            I own the 15", 16", and 18" XPlosion crashes, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I've played high-end Paiste, Meinl, Zildjian, etc. and I will always come back to these (or the HHX line) as favorites. They sound amazing, especially for recording. 15" and 16" are extremely bright and have a relatively high pitch, so they're perfect as accent crashes. The 18" is my ideal main crash. I can't even really explain why, I just love it. The 18 is a little loud out of the bag, so a little bit of any dampening product will make it sound just great. None of them have cracked so far (I've had them for about a year and a half), and they don't show any signs of doing so any time soon. I love them. They're beautiful, too.

                I used to cheap out and buy mid range cymbals (xs20, Alpha, PST5) but these are incredible for the price. Loud but not obnoxious, they are the perfect tone I look for in a crash. The unlathed bell sounds great as well. The only negative I see is that the 16in (I have the 16 and 18) is a bit too shimmery to be a normal use crash. Either way it's great as an accent. tl;dr, great sound, good price, buy them.

                    This is by far the best crash cymbal that i've ever used. I have the 16inch and it sounds amazing. It's got a great bright tone and can cut through when played loud, and it also sustains the bright tone even when played softly. The bell sounds great and the sustain when hit is perfect. It also has a great build up sound when adding dramic cymbal rolls. Just an all around great cymbal.

                      This replaces my 17" medium thin A crash. I really liked the fast splash of that cymbal, but it's the second one I've cracked....time to move on. I'm not a big hitter and play 7A sticks.
                      The AAX definitely has more heft (I got the 17") and I feel like I can (hopefully) bang away on it all day for many years to come. Bright but not instantaneous response that projects nicely...only my bass is mic'd. The bell is bigger and sounds better than the A. I will definitely go through a bunch more sticks, wood flying everywhere when I ride it; but a solid, bouncy response.
                      I haven"t played it long enough, nor played enough other cymbals to rate it a 5 (yet). Nonetheless, I'm pleased as it is a sonically more powerful compliment to my beloved, splashy Paragon.

                          This cymbal is very light and thin, even compared to my other crashes labelled "thin". It cuts through very well, even competes with my HHX 18 inch china. Great for accents, riding, whatever.
