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.

Very unique sonic qualities

Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

I own several splashes; mostly from Zildjian and a couple of UFIP. I actually bought this at the Dave Weckl concert in Chicago on 10/9/05. It has very endearing and unique sonics as it as nice sustain and an excellent touch of trashiness. It is one of the most unique splashes I've ever played and I LOVE IT!!!

    HHX Evolution!

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

    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!

    An excellent way to add color

    By Thomas-MbYSS

    from Utah

    See all my reviews

    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.

    My Favorite Cymbal

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

    I bought the 12" several years ago. I immediately fell in love with it's high, bright, trashy tone and it's extremely fast decay. In fact, I like it so much that I bought the 10" yesterday. Yes they are thin but, that's what gives these splashes their unique sound. Mine show no signs of damage and I tend to play fairly hard. These are still my favorites and I currently have a total of 14 cymbals by Sabian, Zildjian, Paiste and Wuhan.

      Great splash ,sound is bright ,quick decay. great for lower volume use, where a crash would be over powering.
