Overview

This impactful and moody cymbal creates a definite presence and is dramatically dark with a dry, definite decay.

AAX delivers pure, bright shimmering tones. Like stainless steel, AAX is cool, modern, and extremely efficient. Tap with your finger or thrash with a stick, Auto-Focus Response maximizes sensitivity, equalizes high- and low-pitch levels, and purifies sounds by filtering out conflicting overtones.

18" Dark Crash Brilliant Finish

By ytndndrummer

from does it matter?

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

Just got this today and as soon as it came out of the box I knew I was in for a treat. The one I received is surprisingly sturdy for a thin model. Complex is the best summation for the sound.
Seems like carrying a 20" in an 18" cymbal. It's dark and lightning quick but, it has a bright wash that helps it cut through. I took it to practice and set it up next to my HHX Evolution crash(which anyone should own!). This created a dramatic and dynamic pairing since the two appear to be polar opposites. The AAX has a dark tone and bright wash to which the HHX is vice versa. Also, the Evolution has more sustain. This array gives me the diversity I need for our style of heavy, groove oriented metal. On the brighter side I can pair it with my Metal-X crash, or all three in the studio. This gives the Dark crash versatility. A great buy!
Deep, controlled and piercing.
It's a pro level cymbal for a reason.
A little steep but, that's the cost of quality.

Powerful.

By Jonathan Eshleman

from Upland, IN

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

This crash still makes me smile every time I hit it. I've had it for 3-4 months and have yet to be disappointed. The 18" is great for swells as well as thrashing. Works great for worship! If you are looking for a cymbal that adds some flavor to your kit, look no further than the AAX Dark Crash.

I own the 16

By Michael-1N0aV

from Salem, OR

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

These cymbals might be the best crashes I've ever played. They are very responsive, whether hit lightly or hard. They have a nice dark tone, similar to the HH or HHX sounds, but without the high price. Great value and great blend with all sorts of styles (jazz, rock, metal, etc.). I've thought about buying a second one in a different size.

AAX convert

By classic sticks

from Seattle,WA.

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

this is a very decent cymbal with good sound quality & tone. Lively without being brittle,can be subtle or demonic, it depends on your attitude. hit it soft and it has a light, airywash, hit it hard and it's a deep, dark, explosive tone that really cuts through the mix. I typically use Zildjian " K's " and this cymbal blends well with them, although not quite as smooth with a little less brilliance; but all in all a decent crash for the money, time will tell on durability. I've had mine six months with no problems. That's it ! Rock On !!

I LOVE THIS CYMBAL!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

I switched someone my electronic kit for an acoustic kit. The 18 inch came with the set. I LOVE IT! I use it as my main crash. I'm not sure how old it is, but thankfully not even a little crack has been made. It sounds so amazing, and if I had the money I'd buy a 16 in to go with it!

16' AAX Dark Crash

By Rick

from Iowa

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

Absolutely perfect! I have a very bright crash, and another with a lot of attack, but no sustain. This is right in the middle....Right when you hit it you get amazing attack, and then (to compliment it) a bright sustain. Couldn't be happier. Buy it!

An Awesome Crash For A Good Price

By Andrew O

from Arvada, CO

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

This is an amazing crash cymbal. It has a very nice, sophisticated tone and is great for pretty much any style. I've used it for things from metal, to light jazz and almost everywhere in between. This cymbal is almost perfect except it is pretty thin, (I cracked mine after using it for about a year and a half) so for heavy hitters, you might want to look for another crash. Overall though, it's a phenomenal cymbal.

Comments about Sabian AAX Dark Crash Cymbal:

I love the AAX dark crash. It was a huge upgrade from an 18 inch b8 crash. I hope to get more of the same kind. Sabian rocks!!
