            I already own a few of these Evo cymbals. The ones I already had are beyond excellent. I was wanting a cymbal I could use as a small, super bright, crash with just a hint of splash. This 12'' splash is right on the money. It has a broad, clean sound with a quick decay and just the right amount of a splashy shimmer. I would recommend listening to samples on the Sabian site. I've played both rock and jazz with this one and it's very versatile. I think this one cymbal would be suitable as a primary "go to" for a minimal kit such as in a dixieland setup. I already had the 9'' and it's an awesome splash. But the 12'' is one of my favorite cymbals out of the 13 I have on my kit. GET IT!

            This is the ONLY cymbal, splashes included, that I have ever broken. This broke the second time a played it. I hit cymbals properly. Given that this is a very thin cymbal, I was not that surprised or devastated. I managed to get some recordings the first couple times playing it and was very pleased overall. Very bright and cutting with a great decay. However, I do not see this splash (7 inch) doing very well in a live, un mic'ed setting. More cracking without a doubt.
            Sadly, I cannot recommend this cymbal to anyone. A waste of money, even though it is a really nice sound for the first couple of times playing.

              I have the 7" 10" 12" and the 17" Effeks in my rig. They sound very good with just the right splash noise and decay, the harmonics are impressive, and as much as I love my three UFIP's splashes, the HHX record GREAT!

              I bought this splash cuz I had heard great things about it, and found out first hand wut splashes realy should sound like thru this baby!Now Im not an especially hard hitter but I broke it just today... KEEP THE WINGNUT on by mearly a few threads.Still has some life in it, but when it dies completely im gonna go for something a bit thicker, like an AAX...

              The 10" sounds amazing, but i just cracked mine. LEAVE YOUR WING NUTS LOOSE!! When this one fully dies I'm definitely saving for a new one.

              The way a 10 inch splash should sound is the way this splash sounds. Great Cymbal . Go for it

              An excellent way to add color

              Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

              I own the 10" and find that it is one of the prettiest cymbals I have ever heard. It is built very thin, but this allows it to really sing out with its bright tone. I wouldn't recommend this to someone who is just starting because under-developed proper technique may cause it to break. Develop good dynamic technique before making such an investment, because these will break much easier than crash cymbals.
