Amazing quality, amazing sound, it's made by Sabian, you cannot go wrong with this china, if you're looking for one, or replacing one, GET THIS NOW.
This is an amazing product. It will cut through ANYTHING, if you're playing anything from jazz accents to metal breakdowns, this will do it's job.
It's a Sabian, using the new AAX modeling, it has a beautiful design. Plus, this HAS AN ACTUAL BELL, and has a very cutting, loud and trashy punch.
I have a 15" and fell in love with it, so I plan to pick up a 19" fairly soon, a price this low for a cymbal of this quality? It doesn't get better than that.

My 19" lasted only 2 months before it cracked. I got a warranty replacement and it lasted 1/2 hour, i'm not kidding. I suggest the 19" paragon china. It's not as trashy, but it has lasted 34 months. Buying crash and china cymbals from any company, any series, any cost, is a gamble.

      Trash. The good trash.

      About Me Experienced

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      When you're looking for a classic trashy and explosive china, don't look too much further. I finally decided on this cymbal after extensive reviews of many chinas around the 19-20" range, and I'm glad I went with this one. A simple search on audio files or studio demonstrations of this cymbals proves that this does give you the classic "chhh" china sound. I would suggest getting the brilliant version though, it looks better and sounds just a tad better to me. This is a thin cymbal, and it has unfortunately cracked on me after 22 months of moderate use. There are about 3-4 small to moderate sized cracks, but I'm going to let Sabian decide if they are manufacturer defects or not.

      AAXtreme = AAMazing

      By porky88888888

      from Sellersburg, IN

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      I went to my local drum shop looking to buy a china. It was going to be my first one and I had no preconceived ideas about which kind to get. But when I hit this thing I had to have it! It was by far the best sounding china I had ever heard! Very loud and trashy but with a nice balance and sustain and it cut like nobody's business.. It just stood out sooo much from every other china I demoed.

      GET IT!!

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      It will eat your soul. Trashy, a little washy, but mainly oriental and loud. And loud. Yeah.
      Stunning. I hit itand I am pretty sure it punched me in the chest. The most freaking brutal 19" chinese cymbal I have ever had the pleasure to beat with a stick. I also like how it has like an actual freaking normal BELL. Not a stupid little metal thing that looks like a doorknob. Gosh.
      Wicked quality. A pleasure to own. Matt Greier also use it on the entire Messengers album. Need I say more? I will.
      Get the 19". the price is unbeatable. c'mon people.

      Fantastic Cymbal

      By Zach Everett

      from Williamsport, PA

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      I highly recomend this cymbal to anyone in search of a new china. It is a wonderful and very versatile cymbal.
      This cymbal has a very nice and thick trash sound to it. It has a bit of wash so it is not 100% trash and actually sounds good. It is everything a china cymbal should be in all sizes.
      This is a very durable cymbal and will survive the beating that every drummer gives their china cymbal.
      The price is wonderful...you get a perfect sounding china for an affordable price!

      Fantastic!!

      By Noah-bu1J8

      from Connecticut

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      This is an excellent China! Although you can get this cheaper in other places, it is totally worth the buy. I got it for christmas, and I had explored a bunch of other Chinas but this was by far my favorite, and playing metal you need a China that can cut through everyone, and that is exaclty what this China does. My only complaint is the flange is large, so you need to postion it in a way you can still get a sound without hitting the flanger dead on, but other then that I highly recomend buying this cymbal!!

      Very Musical and Trashy

      By Thomas Fitzpatrick

      from Atlanta, GA

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      I bought my first 17" AAX-treme china about a year and a half ago. it had a great "clang" sound, loud and fast response, and very cutting; an all around great cymbal for accents or breakdowns. After about a year, mine cracked, but thanks to Sabians 2-year warranty stock on all cymbals, all it took was a phone call and i got my replacement cymbal 2 weeks later. in the box was a letter from the service rep saying my cymbal had an improper construction, and should have never been put on market, and apologized for my inconvenience. the new cymbal has perfect quality, and is MUCH darker and punchy sounding. I will always be a loyal Sabian customer.
