      I tried Zildjian and Paiste, but for my tastes these Sabian HHXs just blew them away. I still own Zildjian Custom Hybrid 14" hats that I absolutely love so I'm not brand loyal by any stretch, but the Sabian crashes are just awesome.
      I first fell in love with and bought the 16" HHX Stage Crash, but I needed a larger companion. The beauty of this cymbal is its explosiveness, tonal richness, and ability to wash over the stage. The 18" Stage was just too heavy and dark, but the 18" Studio proved to be the absolute perfect companion to my 16" Stage. It's quicker and leaner than the 18" Stage, but its tone still mates perfectly with my smaller crash and its larger size still lets it pack a punch and not sound too thin or shrill. I don't know if Sabian meant for these two families to be combined together, but for my tastes it sure works beautifully.
      These are hand-made products so there is considerable variation between individual cymbals. You need to hear these cymbals in person to make sure you're getting the sound you want, or make sure you buy from a reputable distributor with a good return policy just in case. The first one of these I heard had a small imperfection along the edge and it just didn't sound quite right, but the second one was just dead-on perfect.
      At these prices, you just can't earn a 10.

      Received and returned this cymbal on same day. Since this website's audio samples won't play on either my work or home PC's, I took a leap of faith; thinking this 14'' HHX Studio Crash would match my excellent 16'' HHX Evolution, 18'' HHX Evolution, and 19'' HHX Max Crash in sound quality and fit in with them as a complete performance unit. I was entirely wrong and take full blame for not checking this cymbal out better on the Sabian site's audio which DOES work... I should have noted the word "STUDIO". Evidently, this cymbal is designed for recording and is meant to have no wash or color at all. This Studio cymbal has a very weak flat response. The sound immediately reminded me of a low-quality 14'' ZBT hi-hat cymbal being played as a crash except with faster decay. It is bright with a bit of a gong sound. And it is incredibly quiet in comparison to my other HHX cymbals, has immediate decay, will not open up regardless of force, and the composite seems harder in general, (lacking the softness and tonal variety) of the other HHX's I own. I listened to some samples for the exchange cymbal I ordered and the 14'' Sabian explosion crash has exactly what I'm looking for, for the same money. Lesson learned here. Make sure you do your homework before buying. Kudos to Musician's Friend for giving me an exchange. I really appreciate it or I would have been stuck with a rather useless expensive cymbal.

          It might just be that I'm generally a Paiste fan, but these cymbals are just too dark and trashy for my tastes. Last year, I tried using the 17" and 18" while in the studio, and I was very disappointed considering the cost of these cymbals. They lack the sparkle and "glassy" quality that I look for in a good crash cymbal, don't have enough sustain, and sound especially dark and muffled in live situations.

          beautiful sound

          Comments about Sabian HHX Studio Crash Cymbal:

          this crash sounds amazing. I bought mine from a certain space themed music store about 6 years ago for $100 when they were going out. Its sounds great still but when playing live, I sometimes need to put an overhead closer to it when I use this with some med-thin A's... the sound matches great with them but its a little "washier" and less "cutting". still amazing sound though.

          Perfect Smooth Crash

          Comments about Sabian HHX Studio Crash Cymbal:

          I bought the 15" Crash. I like the odd number crashes, and I never heard this before in person; bought it because I heard reviews, and wow, what a great crash. Very loud, yet cutting, a very 'shimmering' crash, and has the best build up Ive ever heard.

          I've had the 14 and 16 for over a year now and recently decided to go all out in the cymbal category. I bought the 18 as well as 10 and 12 HHX splashes. I loved my 14 and 16, but i was still amazed with these recent additions. All five of these cymbals are perfect compliments of each other. Any two of these blend together beautifully. Definitely a good choice on my part.

          Comments about Sabian HHX Studio Crash Cymbal:

          These cymbals are beautiful and unique. I ordered the 14" and 16" last week. They are "thin and crisp". They have an ultra fast response and are extremely sensitive w/ a short sustain. Hitting them harder doesnt make them wash more, so much as it makes them louder, although they do build up. A light tap gives them a great sound and a wallop makes them scream. The 14" is VERY high pitched. I cant wait to get the 18" to balance it out. Beautiful in appearance...

          These cymbals have the most full sound you can imagine. You can ride hard on this thing for a a whole song and it won't wash out. Or add a musical punch by merely tapping it. I record regularly with this thing and every producer and sound tech loves it! ( I have the 20")
