The raw, ripping response of this Sabian AAX 18″ Chinese Cymbal is big and tight, bright and trashy, rash and musical. Sabian AAX cymbals deliver 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. Ideal in the studio, ideal onstage.
