It will eat your soul. Trashy, a little washy, but mainly oriental and loud. And loud. Yeah.
Stunning. I hit itand I am pretty sure it punched me in the chest. The most freaking brutal 19" chinese cymbal I have ever had the pleasure to beat with a stick. I also like how it has like an actual freaking normal BELL. Not a stupid little metal thing that looks like a doorknob. Gosh.
Wicked quality. A pleasure to own. Matt Greier also use it on the entire Messengers album. Need I say more? I will.
Get the 19". the price is unbeatable. c'mon people.

My 19" lasted only 2 months before it cracked. I got a warranty replacement and it lasted 1/2 hour, i'm not kidding. I suggest the 19" paragon china. It's not as trashy, but it has lasted 34 months. Buying crash and china cymbals from any company, any series, any cost, is a gamble.

Packs Quite the Punch

Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

Amazing quality, amazing sound, it's made by Sabian, you cannot go wrong with this china, if you're looking for one, or replacing one, GET THIS NOW.
This is an amazing product. It will cut through ANYTHING, if you're playing anything from jazz accents to metal breakdowns, this will do it's job.
It's a Sabian, using the new AAX modeling, it has a beautiful design. Plus, this HAS AN ACTUAL BELL, and has a very cutting, loud and trashy punch.
I have a 15" and fell in love with it, so I plan to pick up a 19" fairly soon, a price this low for a cymbal of this quality? It doesn't get better than that.

    Very Musical and Trashy

    By Thomas Fitzpatrick

    from Atlanta, GA

    Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

    I bought my first 17" AAX-treme china about a year and a half ago. it had a great "clang" sound, loud and fast response, and very cutting; an all around great cymbal for accents or breakdowns. After about a year, mine cracked, but thanks to Sabians 2-year warranty stock on all cymbals, all it took was a phone call and i got my replacement cymbal 2 weeks later. in the box was a letter from the service rep saying my cymbal had an improper construction, and should have never been put on market, and apologized for my inconvenience. the new cymbal has perfect quality, and is MUCH darker and punchy sounding. I will always be a loyal Sabian customer.

    Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

    I went to my local drum shop looking to buy a china. It was going to be my first one and I had no preconceived ideas about which kind to get. But when I hit this thing I had to have it! It was by far the best sounding china I had ever heard! Very loud and trashy but with a nice balance and sustain and it cut like nobody's business.. It just stood out sooo much from every other china I demoed.

    GET IT!!

    THE china

    By MaD MiKE from TWITCH

    from Jackson, Michigan

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

    I've been playing percussion for over 12 years now and this is the best overall china I've ever put a drumstick on. A little too raw for lighter genre's however still a very versatile sound. I play predominantly hard rock/metal and it has a great wash, incredible response, and amazing projection. It's rare to find a china that sounds good at high and low volumes, simply put, this is the only china I will play.

    The AAXtreme Chinese has very good sound characteristics and medium projection. The cymbal is better played upside down.

      Trash. The good trash.

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      When you're looking for a classic trashy and explosive china, don't look too much further. I finally decided on this cymbal after extensive reviews of many chinas around the 19-20" range, and I'm glad I went with this one. A simple search on audio files or studio demonstrations of this cymbals proves that this does give you the classic "chhh" china sound. I would suggest getting the brilliant version though, it looks better and sounds just a tad better to me. This is a thin cymbal, and it has unfortunately cracked on me after 22 months of moderate use. There are about 3-4 small to moderate sized cracks, but I'm going to let Sabian decide if they are manufacturer defects or not.

      Amazing China

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      Before this, I had the $15 dollar Wuhan due to an urgent need for a china. I played shows and recorded with it and it was a good china, of course not great but it lasted while having a somewhat good sound. I bought the AAXtreme China and played a show with it the same day of purchase and I am EXTREMELY satisfied. It has the perfect sound for shows as it is trashy and loud. I play in a deathcore band and it sounds simply amazing for my type of music.

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      These are really great china's they are very loud and have the ideal china sound. I own the 15 and 17 inchers and i am going to order the 19 as soon as i get the money. I have had them for about 5 months and have no complaints. Buy this cymbal for sure if you have the money.

      from Ohio

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      I got this cymbal (15") free with a mail-in rebate deal, and this cymbal left me speechless. It has the perfect trashy sound that you have love, it's also very quike, and loud of course. I have it next to my 18"HHX china (also awesome) and they surpriseing match well together. I don't know about duriblity yet (owned it for only a couple days), but the sound is outstanding. I highly recommend it.

      I just picked up a 19", and it by far my favorite china cymbal. I would highly recommend it for any heavy music style. Check out August Burns Red's new record, titled Messengers, if you want to hear it before ordering.

      Fantastic!!

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      This is an excellent China! Although you can get this cheaper in other places, it is totally worth the buy. I got it for christmas, and I had explored a bunch of other Chinas but this was by far my favorite, and playing metal you need a China that can cut through everyone, and that is exaclty what this China does. My only complaint is the flange is large, so you need to postion it in a way you can still get a sound without hitting the flanger dead on, but other then that I highly recomend buying this cymbal!!

      Bought the 17 inch and want the 15 inch now! Such a great accent and when combined with a strong crash the sound is unparralelled! If other drummers are around, this cymbal will get there attention.
