        Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I got this with the HHX Super Cymbal pack at a great price and I read the reviews on here. However this ride was not what I was hoping it was. The bell is great and the wash is good, but there is minimal ping on the body of the cymbal. Whenever you try to ride on it the wash would over take everything else. This cymbal fits great with maybe a jazz kit, or a fusion kit. Possible ?uestlove or Steve Jordan style. I plan on using it as a wash ride cymbal so I can get full use out of it and buy a new HH Raw Bell Dry Ride for ping.

        the best cymbal i have ever played

        By Chris Lightbody

        from Wisconsin

        Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Ride Cymbal:

        This is the best peice of musical equipment I have ever owned. It can make a million different sounds in one song, and every year that I have it it sounds better and better and better. I tested rides for years before being graced with this HHX's presence. If i ever manage to break it, I will buy the exact same cymbal again and again and again.
        Loud, gorgeous bell. Nicely defined sticking, amazing side stick wash.
        Literally the only peice of drum equipment that I have EVER owned, that I have not broken.
        It's expensive..because it's awesome.

        gorgeous and dark but not quite for me

        By weevilboy

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Ride Cymbal:

        This is a great ride--it has an awe-inspiring bell, and a great, low, roaring wash when played on the shoulder. What it's missing is the defined sticking on the bow,...it wants to wash or crank out the bell, but nothing in between. I might have been using the wrong sticks or playing too hard, but outside of loud jazz or bell-centric rock I wasn't sure what to do with it. I prefer my more-controlled Memphis ride.

        Great Ride!!! Weak Bell

        By DDrummer-SgOvk

        from Lynchburg, Va

        Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I've owned this cymbal for about 4 years and it has really grown on me. I love using it like a crash when I'm hammering out a heavy groove, but I also love the stick articulation for light suttle stuff as well. The only problem I would say for me, is that the bell on this cymbal is weak for playing Metal or Rock. It gets overpowered when playing and gets lost in the mix. But over-all this is a really good ride! And you know what they say... Different strokes for different folks! Rock on Playas!!!:)))

        Great Ride

        Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I would recommend this cymbal IF you have the money, all i can really say is to try out the cymbal yourself and decide if you like, other good sabian rides would be the AAX Metal Ride, HH Rock Ride, and the HHX Power Ride.
        I have the brilliant version of this ride and its 20 inches, I dont know if they make any other sizes. This is a medium weight ride and it sounds great, not too much wash but its easy to crash and has AMAZING stick definition so its great for blasting," any stick bigger than a Vic Firth 5A will really get ""wash it up"" so if you use anything bigger I would suggest you purchase the HHX Power Ride", that ride is a heavy weight and is not so good for crashing but is loud and bright. I also love the bell on this ride, I just dont like how its hammered, I like an unhammered bell and an idea i would like to submit to sabian would be to have a ride with a brilliant finish bell and raw finish on the bow *wink wink*
        Great quality is all I can say, Ive never seen a ride break so I doubt it will happen to this, I will keep this ride for the rest of my life because it is very versatile and I have used it in Death Metal situations where blast beats are a norm and jazz gigs with its just light tapping.
        Although it is an amazing ride, its more expensive than many other great rides, Sabian is known for overpricing. Try something from Paiste's Alpha range or Meinl's Soundcaster line, DONT, I REPEAT, DONT BUY A CYMBAL FROM ZILDJIAN, they are only in the cymbal making business, to, well, make cymbals. Theyve stopped caring about their products and just make cymbals to make money, Sabian blows them out of the water with quality, sound, and variety.

        Well rounded

        By Michael-1N0aV

        Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Ride Cymbal:

        This ride can do just about everything. It has a great balance between stick definition and wash. The dark tone I believe allows it to sit inside the music. If you want something more cutting or bright I would suggest the AA Rock Ride or the AAX Stage ride. Overall, this cymbal was well worth the money and gave me everything I wanted in a ride (dark, definition, and crashability).

        washy cymbal, over powering bell

        By myelement21

        from League City(Houston), TX

        Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Ride Cymbal:

        this really has the right tone for me but i really have to look for the right stick. If the stick is a smaller jazz or fusion stick the ride sound amazing. As i start moving up to a 5a the ride just sounds a bit to washy for me and overall the bell is overpowering and has too long of a sustain. (i want a ping not a bell ringing. Dont let my personal preferences lead you to not getting this cymbal cuz its absolutly beautiful. I guess i need more of a ride that has little or no overtone(flat/raw sound), for someone who doesnt wanna use it for crash too. If your like me, get an AAX 21" raw bell. Same raw to natural finish.

        HHX stage ride

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I bought this ride cymbal on a whim and have been extremely happy with it. This cymbal sounds even better when you let it get dirty. The stick definition is very chic and crisp and yet the wash and sustain is perfect for most any musical situation. I use this ride for a lot of my rock situations where I want a solid washed out sound but at the same time I need a precise stick definition at times. This cymbal fills this need rather well.

        Comments about Sabian HHX Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I own this cymbal, though I got it for a much, much better price than what offered here. :-/ It has a gradual build up while riding which leads to a nice, but not overpowering wash, and a very penetrating bell. It also looks absolutely stunning, a very beautiful cymbal.
