        Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

        THE SOUND is sooooo epic! with soft mallets I can create the most amazing crescendos! it has a surface I can get 10,000 tones and sounds from. The edge gives sweetness, a light tough brings amazing emotional twinges of high frequency when played with a plastic tipped stick. played with the edge of the stick gives a SHARP fast sound. the inner bell SPEAKS loudly and with authority. overall its AMAZING and my fav cymbal.

        great all around cymbal

        By Kristian Thompson _

        from Rio Rancho, NM

        Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

        I first started toying with the idea of getting one of these because the particular one I was looking at sounded fantastic. it crashes, rides and the bell is awesome. I now use it as my main ride. I love it. The only reason I give it a 4 star rating is because the sound of these things very so greatly from one to another. even though they are the same cymbal, they sound drastically different from one to the next. the salesman told me that the one I got is the best sounding one that they have had in the store for some time. After I bought mine and they replaced it with another (mine is a 22") I was comparing it and they guy was right. I could definately tell the difference between the two. Mine sounds fantastic and it is the ride that I now use at all my gigs. I would recommend this cymbal but I would also reccomend that you check it out in person before purchasing.

        My favorite cymbal.

        By maria bairaktaris

        from Indiana

        Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

        I purchased both the 22 inch and the 18 inch about a year and a half ago. They are the only true "crash-rides." I play in both a punk band and Jam-band, and my 22 inch can suit both styles. The bell of the 22 has the ideal sound of a bell, in my opinion. Riding the 22 inch has a very dry but smooth sound to it. Crashing the 22 is just awesome!!! So many different sounds can come out of it. The 18 inch has a good bell, but the crash can be a bit too harsh for my jam band, I tend to use it only for my punk band. The ride function sounds good, but prefer my 22 for riding purposes. Both of these cymbals are great looking and worth purchasing. I would definitely recommend these to anyone.

        Wonderful Cymbal But Not for Everyone

        By jon wapner

        from Philadelphia, PA

        Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

        I was intrigued by the just the idea of the OMNI when I first saw an ad in Modern Drummer last year. It looked so cool and seemed to promise the world. Months go by, and I finally get one of my very own. This cymbal is incredible. It covers such a wide variety of tones and playing styles. However, it's just not a good fit for most drummers. The OMNI is not a cymbal that one can just throw into an existing set-up and expect it to blend well. My hope was to add it into my burgeoning fusion set-up (13" HH Fusion Hats, 12" AAX Mini Chinese, 16" AA Bright Crash, and 8" & 10" AAX Splashes) and eliminate the need of having separate right-side crash and ride cymbals. Despite being paired with the Bright Crash on the left, the crashing surface of the OMNI was far too bright and trashy. By comparison, the little 16" AA Bright Crash seems very dark. In order to make it work, a drummer would literally have to build around the OMNI, perhaps buying both the 18" and 22" models and the AAX El Sabor Hand crash from which it was derived. As with all AAX models it does seem to blend well with other AAX's -- non-AAXplosion models. My jazz/fusion set doesn't have enough real estate to accommodate the OMNI and the ride and crash cymbals that it was intended to replace. My big rock set up does have plenty of room for this 22" beast. It would make a great left-side ride/bright crash effect. The problem with putting it into a rock set-up is that it would get destroyed. The edge of this cymbal is among the thinnest I've ever played. When you combine that extra thin edge with a medium heavy bell and heavier Rock sized drumsticks, you have a recipe for a broken cymbal. So unless you plan on building a fusion, latin, or jazz set-up around the OMNI, it probably isn't a good fit for you.

        Great Cymbal


        from Mckinney, TX

        Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

        i just bought the 22 inch omni, and must say this is the best cymbal i ever bought great stick definition, the bell is so wonderful. If You ride the edge you can get a nice jazz wash out of it. The omni has the best sound quality you can get out of a cymbal. When you buy this cymbal its like 4 great cymbals in one. Thank you Sabian, and Jojo Mayer

        Comments about Sabian AAX OMNI Ride:

        The Sabian Omni Crash is the first of its kind. It is the only true crash-ride since it is able to be ridden on the thick, unlathed portion for dry, crisp, and cutting sound while you can still hit the thin, lathed edge for a piercing yet full crash sound that, unlike other crash-rides, does NOT interfere with the stick definition on the ride portion. This is the most innovative cymbal Sabian has released to date by a longshot; simply a must have for those looking for the perfect crash-ride.
