Product Description

Precise. AAX delivers pure, bright shimmering tones. Like stainless steel, AAX is cool, modern, and extremely efficient. With its streamlined design and sound-shaping Auto-Focus Response feature, AAX is the ultimate breakthrough in modern cymbal making. Tap with your finger or thrash with a stick, Auto-Focus Response maximizes sensitivity, equalizes high & low pitch levels, and purifies sounds by filtering out conflicting overtones. AAX sounds are pure and accurate. Ideal in the studio, ideal onstage. AAX delivers the freedom to sound great in any music.

Bursting with bright, explosive attack, delivers penetrating definition with total presence and power.

Hear the AAX X-Plosion crash cymbal in action in this video from Sabian.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Great workhorse cymbal!"
Sound: I have an 18'' AAX plosion, and i gotta say, this thing has a super-versatile sound. I can whack it for a nice, trashy accent suitable for any style from jazz, to rock, to metal. It rides great for a tremendous wave of brilliance suitable for hardcore & metal. It sounds great when rolled on with soft mallets, too. And the bell is just perfect for funk work. Feature: Nothing else included, so 5. Ease of Use: Can you hit a cymbal? Quality: This thing is very sturdy, I've had no problems with it. Value: For what a great sound you can get, it could be a lot more. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with Sabian, doubt i'll need to. The Wow Factor: It has a beautiful gleam to it that beats out lots of other cymbals. Overall: This is a great cymbal, I love Sabian, and i'm getting sick of answering question after question...
Style of Music: Everything, especially hardcore

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
