Almost X-rated.

Raw, ripping response is big but tight, bright and trashy, and brash but musical.

Great Cymbal

By drum_stud1501

from Holland, MI

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Chinese Cymbal:

It is a great cymbal. I love mine and I would suggest it to anyone. It is really trashy but still has some ringing overtones that can be eliminated with some tape and cranking it down on the stand. (I'm in it just for the trash). It is a great addition to a drumset for any level.

Perfection?

By Ya N Ope

from Pennington, NJ

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Chinese Cymbal:

Yes, perfection is a word to describe this cymbal. From live gigs to the studio, this china does it all with amazing sound. I own the 18" AAX China and I love it. It blends very well with my HHX 20" china and my Hand Hammered 22" china (great cymbals as well). It is by far the best 18" china that I have ever played on. If you buy it, your dreams of a perfect china cymbal will come to life.

Not for hard htters

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Chinese Cymbal:

I got the 16" 4 months ago and it got a two inch crack from one blow during a song with my band. If you hit your cymbals hard, do not get this, unless you are willing to spend $ every four months on a new one. That being said, while it lasted, it was my favorite cymbal on the kit.

Great China

By Nyang

from Somewhere

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Chinese Cymbal:

I bought this cymbal at guitar center used for a lot less than its normal price. Normally I'd never buy a Sabian AAX because they're way too expensive, or really any used china at that, but seeing it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to get a no joke Sabian China for way less than the original price, I had to have it. Now what do I think about it? Overall, it is bright and cutting cymbal, and is great for funk, rock, metal, and there's more than enough room in between. I was impressed with the quality of the sound. It is very trashy, and has the perfect amount of sustain. Its also very durable, and has held up with constant use for over 2 years, which is good for a used china (However, I tend to be a light hitter, so your mileage may vary). Otherwise, it has held up very well for me. From practice to studio to stage, it's a cymbal that is great for all styles and I would highly recommend it to anyone if you can afford it's hefty price tag.

    Comments about Sabian AAX Series Chinese Cymbal:

    I bought this China used in a 20" at Guitar Center for half price of a new one. Buying a new one would be worth it if you don't have one. I plan on buying another one in an 18" so I get some more sounds. Great Quality. It is the greatest China I've heard and am very impressed.

    Comments about Sabian AAX Series Chinese Cymbal:

    I do not own any china cymbal yet, but this is one I will definitely consider buying! My friend owns this one, and when I first tried it out, I thought: "WOW! This is the perfect China sound!" I am 90% sure I will buy this and if this can help anyone out there, it is a great china. My friend has had it for a year and a half and it hasn't cracked yet.

    Simply the best

    By Joey-V8X-W

    from California

    Comments about Sabian AAX Series Chinese Cymbal:

    This china is by far the best china I have ever used, perfect decay, loud crisp attack, and just a beautiful cymbal over all. My one problem was that it is rather quite so in a situation where you are not mic'd it may be a bit shy.
