Best ride I've ever played!

      Comments about Sabian AA Series Apollo Cymbal:

      Firstly, I love the look! Raw surface with a finished underside, looks incredible (and small logo). The sound is so full and nice from the bow using the bead of the stick as well as the neck of the stick. The bell sounds incredible, though small, it packs a punch and cuts right through with a dark clear sound. This is easily my favorite ride that I've ever owned/played. Buy this ride already!

        Comments about Sabian AA Series Apollo Cymbal:

        I bought this cymbal when it first came out and I have to say there is nothing about it I don't like. I was playing a much heavier AA Raw Bell Dry Ride and wanted something a little warmer and quieter. Bingo...I found it. It is Big and Ugly and everyone who has heard it likes it. It has a great shimmy to it and it is crashable. Not a big bright loud crash but a sexy here I am crash. Try it and see. You won't be disappointed.

        Comments about Sabian AA Series Apollo Cymbal:

        I still gave this cymbal 5-stars, but here are my thoughts:
        I could have easily taken off a star, but I didn't because what I am about to say isn't necessarily advertised by Sabian, but something I've read from reviews, and also something that might be individualistic to the one I received.
        THIS THING HAS NO CRASH.
        It has a very tall profile, and is medium-thin in weight, and very flexible. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this thing, but I bought it in hopes of using it as a main ride/crash-ride. I'm not even joking when I say that hitting this cymbal with the shank of your stick sounds like someone is choking the cymbal during the hit... Very dull with no wash whatsoever.
        Now, don't stop reading just yet, because the stick definition and THE BELL sound are phenomenal. As you can see by the pictures below, the Apollo is still in my Main Ride position because the stick definition/ride sound and bell sound are pure nirvana. Not being able to crash it kinda stinks, but I have the 22" Monarch as my crash/ride (I would suggest the Monarch as the most crashable in the big and ugly series). Also pictured is the 14" Apollo Hats, which I recommend are much better than the Monarch hats! From left to right: Apollo hats, 20" monarch (cut out of picture), 22" Monarch, 22" Apollo! Aesthetically, the Apollo is just as beautiful as the other B&U Series Cymbals!

          This cymbal is a dream for me. I wanted a dry ride with crash capability and a great bell. I got all three with this one.
