Amazing cymbal definatley worth buying!

By Sheri Barsoum

from Las Vegas Nevada

Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Crash Cymbal:

Overall it is a great cymbal. Definatley worth buying!
The features on this cymbal are great! It's a nice touch of bronze color with a smoothe bell.
I love the quality of this cymbal. It may be a little pricy but it is definatley worth it. Sounds great and doesn't have much of a ring. It's great to use for a show or on stage performances .
The value is indeed great like all the other features to this cymbal.

Explosive crash

By Timothy Shea

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Crash Cymbal:

I tried the other usual suspects, and these Sabian HHX crashes just seem to speak with more of a tonal voice than any of the others. Whether it's a voice you like is up to you, but I find them truly special.
I bought the 16", and it is my favorite cymbal. It's uber explosive but has a ton of tonal flavor, color, and dynamic impact rather than just high-pitched sizzle (although that obviously has its place as well). I think "meaty" is the word I'd use to desribe its sound. I tried to pair it with its 18" stablemate and that one was just to heavy and dark for my taste, so I went with the 18" Studio version and the match is just sublime. Some things are just worth paying for. I smile every time I hit them.
These are individually hand-hammered products, so there are variations between individual cymbals so they need to be auditioned in person to ensure you're getting the sound you're looking for. Hey, it's just the nature of the beast -- these ain't mass-produced, me-too products.
At these prices, even awesome sound needs to be brought down to earth a little.

Most Versatile

By Play4Him

from Lynchburg, VA

Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Crash Cymbal:

Having played drums for 30+ years and after trying a great variety of cymbals I have settled down on the Sabian HHX stage crash in 17" for my workhorse crash. I don't want to carry a bunch of cymbals around anymore and have found the HHX line to be very versatile with a wide range of musical styles. You're getting what you pay for with this cymbal.

Warm and powerful

By Ivan Bernal 68

from Lima, Peru

Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Crash Cymbal:

I got the 18 crash and I d say it's a great cymbal. Not too dark as HHs, but really warm, with a touch of explosive power when hit it. And a good, VERY good bell with penetrating sound. May be too expensive for someone, but I recommend it. I use it most of the times for pop and jazz, but suitable for rock too.

Great crash

By Carlos Lindado

from Bogotá, Colombia

Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Crash Cymbal:

I own the 16" version, and I have to say it is very full and powerful for its size, it can cut easily through loud guitar riffs and mixes very well with deep, punchy bass accents.I know there are not "perfect cymbals", but I think this cymbal is perfect within its kind. Besides that, it looks way cool!Highly recommended.

Love it.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Crash Cymbal:

Sounds just beautiful at all volumes. Smash the hell out of it for climax, crash it lightly for that subtle filler, tap it for sustained deep mellow wash, or use the bell, it all sounds amazingly beautiful. Did I mention I love it? However, it is too expensive.
