I was very happy with my 19 inch that I used for about 2-3 years. It cracked during the warranty period and I got it replaced and then recently, the 2nd one cracked. I used the 19in to my left, mostly for accents so it wasn't my "main cymbal". I decided to go with the 20inch as my main cymbal since I've been breaking the 19in AA Metal-X's too frequently lately and thought I would try something different. I bought the 20 inch on a whim, without trying it in the store, hoping that being bigger, it might last longer. I played one gig and have decided to send this back. Simply, its just too much. This cymbal is beyond bright and cuts like no other. Very shimmering and loud to the point of overkill. It drowns out my 18in AAX stage crash. However, even though its a 20 inch, the cymbal is not very thick and I can see this thing breaking very quickly. Overall I was disappointed with the 20 inch. If you are looking for something on the heavy side that you can crash ride with, this is the not the cymbal for you. However, the 19 and 18inch versions would great additions to your kit so long as they don't get abused.

Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Crash Cymbal:

Loud. Cutting. Smooth. Sabian.
I will start off like a child. IT WAS SO FREAKING SHINY! Not even kidding. They literally took my breath away when I opened the box. I got the 18" and the 19". I love the shape, the huge bell, and the brilliant finish. It also looks hardcore when you give it a good smack, from the thinness. Woooo.
Freaking rediculous quality. I held them in my hands for a few seconds, then put em on the kit. First I hit the 18 inch, it shimmered and a smile spread across my face. Then, I whacked the 19. I think I blacked out for a second. I just sat on my throne for a good 5 minutes just crashing them. So awesome, cutting, yet very dark and deep.
Price doesn't really matter if you are getting something that upgrading won't be needed later. Also, this isn't too bad of a cost. Get it!

Amazing Cymbal

By Parker-MPX3z

from Indiana

Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Crash Cymbal:

This was my first crash that I bought for my set. I did not buy it off of here but on ebay. I got a 16" crash. It sounds amazing. I love sabian for all there products. But AAX diffidently stands out. If you are questionable about getting this cymbal than you need to try it, look it up on youtube, or just take my advice to buy it. My favorite drummer had this cymbal (The Rev, R.I.P.). And I'm glad that I looked at what he had before I bought a lower end cymbal such as the B8's. BUY THIS CYMBAL YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

18" Sabian AAXplosion Fast Crash

By Dustin Turner

from kentucky

Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Crash Cymbal:

i think that this is probably the best crash cymbal i have ever played on. i used to love zildjian a-customs.. in the stores. but live they're not loud enough. this cymbal cuts through so well ,just like the rest of the aax family. i will definitely be purchasing more. if i were to upgrade my cymbals, it would be to Meinl Byzances. but until then, im sticking with theses. best cymbal i have ever played.
Super shiny.
I bought the 18" Fast Crash used. I didnt realize that it was an Extra-Thin cymbal until i was reading up about it a few hours before it arrived at my home. seeing as how im a hard hitter, i thought this cymbal would be a little sketchy for me. i decided to just see how it went. as i opened it, i noticed that since this was my first brilliant cymbal ( about a month or so earlier i bought a used aax stage ride for around 160 in brilliant finish but it was a few years old and the finish had somewhat been worn down ) it was a true fingerprint magnet. ( when playing i refrain from choking the cymbal just because it looks cool without the prints.... ha) i placed it on my stand and gave it a whack. i knew that from the first crash it was definitely a keeper. ive been playing it hard for around a month and a half now, and no dents/stickmarks whatsoever, amazing.
i bought it used for $145 so i cant say much about the value, but it was like new. but i definitely recommend busting out the money for this cymbal, or for the penny-pinchers, grab it used before someone else does.

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Crash Cymbal:

      This cymbal surprised me. For a 16 in cymbal it sounds much bigger, the sound is absolutely fantastic! Very bright tone, doesn't sound tinny like smaller cymbals tend to sound. Has a lightning fast response and decay, great stick feel to it. It looks beautiful too! I intended to use it as an accent crash, almost like a huge splash cymbal.. I've found myself going to it more and more though during my crash sequences.

          I use these crashes for my style of music and they work perfectly. I have an 18 & 19 inch AAXplosion crash. I play heavy/progressive/pop music. They are loud and cut through the mix very well. They also work well during our softer jazz/blues sections. For the price, reliability and warranty, they can't be beat.

            Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Crash Cymbal:

            I own the 15", 16", and 18" XPlosion crashes, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I've played high-end Paiste, Meinl, Zildjian, etc. and I will always come back to these (or the HHX line) as favorites. They sound amazing, especially for recording. 15" and 16" are extremely bright and have a relatively high pitch, so they're perfect as accent crashes. The 18" is my ideal main crash. I can't even really explain why, I just love it. The 18 is a little loud out of the bag, so a little bit of any dampening product will make it sound just great. None of them have cracked so far (I've had them for about a year and a half), and they don't show any signs of doing so any time soon. I love them. They're beautiful, too.

            Exceptional Crash Cymbal

            By Chris-qlw5F

            from Toronto

            Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Crash Cymbal:

            I was looking for something brilliant, wet n juicy, with bite that was explosive but in a beautiful way like hearing water crashing down from a waterfall. This cymbal (mine is the 18 inch) sounds like a waterfall of colourful sounds. I was at Long & McQuades who actually sell Sabian products for less due to some agreement, and I tried three 18 inch aaxplosions, and also two 19 inch ones. In conclusion, Sabian is consistent, which means they're reliable, and not to mention they sound amazing, I do not know if they will age well, but for hard rock, fusion, and anything that needs a tasty sounding crash I believe this cymbal will do the job. I was born into loving Zildjian, I was always brought up to play with high end Zidljian's, but honestly Sabian has done a great job with their crashes. I will probably never buy hi hats because only Zildjian can make good hi hats, but these crash cymbals have character!

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Crash Cymbal:

            These truly are some of the best crashes out there. They are extremely explosive, loud and cutting, and their enhanced projection characteristics allow them to cut through the loudest music. These also have the greatest value I have seen in crash cymbals - the price seems low for such a cymbal! I recommend using a setup of the 16" and the 18". Buy the AAXplosions now -- you won't be disappointed!

            I bought the 17" AAX xplosion crash to replace my 17" vault v crash that i cracked after 5 years of playing. Its amazing! It is by far the best crash I have ever heard or owned. Loud, but very musical. You can't go wrong, and the price isnt bad either!

            from Victoria, BC

            Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Crash Cymbal:

            This cymbal by far is my favorite cymbal! I have the 16" "fast crash" that doesn't come close to this 14" regular crash. I have an 18" HHXplosion and an 18" AAXplosion regular crashes also. I run the 14" right above my hi-hats, and I go to it all the time, for ending splashes & mid-song key cymbal crashes (or octave changes). Again, the 16" fast crash doesn't compare in my book. This is my FAVORITE cymbal! There are lots of cymbals, and this is in a whole different league.

            i play drums for a stoner metal band so i needed something loud!! i got the 19" in a trade for a paragon and it was exactly what i needed, have a 17" a custom on the other side that i am replacing with another one of these cause it makes it sound very weak

                This review is sole on the Sabian AAX Explosion 14" crash... best way to describe it, wow! This cymbal compaired to my Zildjian 14" fast crash is night and day! The Sabian actually makes the Zildjian sound like stamped steel, lol! The Sabian is bright and explodes with a good crack. It decays at a nice rate, it gives a nice wash before going quiet. Even as a 14" you can get a nice swell from it. The bell like all AAX is huge and usable, there again, more accompaniment! This cymbal fits right in with the rest of the pack... AAX Explosion 19", AAX Explosion 17", AAX Explosion 15" and my AAX 20" Stadium ride. Yes, there is a very nice difference between the 14" and 15". I'm extremely happy with everything about this 14" Sabian AAX Explosion crash, I highly recommend it to anyone.

                  This review is for just the Sabian 15" X-plosion crash.... man was it hard to find reviews in here on this one! To start off with, the cymbal looks amazing! Brilliant finish, raw un-lathed bell and its quite thick. Don't let the thickness fool you... it's got that nice high pitched splash/crash sound your looking for. The design of this cymbal produces very loud volume. It cuts through the live mix flawlessly! It swells sweet, the high pitched bell makes for a nice alternative bell to hit too. Buying cymbals without hearing them first is a huge gamble... this one hit the nail on the head for what I was looking for. I use this with a 19", 17" AAX E-xplosion crash and it fits right in. Now I'm seriously concidering purchasing the 14" as well. The Sabian 15" AAX E-Xplosion crash is a fantastic cymbal, I absolutely love it and you will too!

                  Worst cymbal I've ever played. Abrasive, non musical sounding, almost gong like.

                      I purchased the AAX Xplosion Fast Crash and wasn't happy because it didn't have a sustained crash sound. I also learned after the fact that it was a thinner material (my fault). This 16" goes with my 18" Xplosion great. I found the sound I was looking for in a 16" crash. It has a full and sustained sound. It just feels right. Very happy with this cymbal.
