Reacts like a cat.
By demand, Sabian has introduced the AAX O-Zone Splash. With its uniquely innovative design--six 1" holes perforate its thin B20 bronze--this small model responds at super-fast rates with bright, biting sounds and rapid decay. Available in 10" and 12" sizes, the O-Zone Splash cymbal joins the O-Zone Crash as the latest accent model in the award-winning AAX series.
The multi-hole O-Zone design is instantly recognizable. Along with the holes giving the cymbal a sleek look, removal of metal to create them causes a lighter weight cymbal resulting in an accelerated response rate and added agitation to the sound. This is what gives the O-Zone splash cymbal the identifiable degree of "bite" that has made it so popular with so many of today's top drummers and percussionists.
Like all Sabian AAX cymbals the AAX O-Zone Splash is hand crafted from Sabian's secret process B20 bronze, a combination of 80% copper with silver and 20% tin. A proprietary hand-guided hammering process and hand lathing combine to give this and all AAX cymbals a crisp, clean and clear sound at all volumes.
