Sabian HHX Omni Crash Ride Cymbal

The Sabian HHX Omni is like two cymbals in one -- its jumbo-hammered center and bell makes an articulate ride sound, while its thin edge makes a great crash.
Sabian introduces its revolutionary Omni cymbal design in the Modern Dark HHX series. The jumbo HHX hammering delivers a Ride cymbal that's dry, articulate and always controlled, while the medium-sized bell lowers the pitch and provides even more Ride area. The extra-thin edge results in an open and extremely musical crash. Omni is the world's first cymbal to truly deliver a crash and a ride in a single model. Developed with seminal drummer Jojo Mayer, the vision for Omni was to create a cymbal with outstanding sonic contrast both when played on its own or with other cymbals.

"Great ride for recording"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This unit has a great sound, even as a crash. Its hand hammered so it has a darker sound than an AAX or AA. This comes in handy not to overpower your OH microphones. It cuts through the mix very well bow middle or bell. You just have to adjust your playing position for where you are at in the composition. it opens up nice and has a great sustain.
Musical Background:
35 years, playing every type of music imaginable.
Musical Style:
I gravitate to prog rock, odd time signatures and great musicianship. Daddy likes him some blues though...
