amazing

I have a 18 inch and a 20 inch crash aax metal. They are very very good blends with the music. Good for metal and rock and punk. I recommend these cymbals.

I respect Sabian as a quality cymbal crafting company. I do not think the AAX metal crash is one of their best cymbals, but it is still well crafted. The cymbal is not really good for regular crash use, but does do well for extreme accents and things like that. Don't buy this cymbal expecting to make it your main crash, it is too overpowering and heavy for constant hitting. Good for heavy rock I suppose, but still really to overbearing for constant use.

Great crash

By Devin Kite

from Aberdeen, WA

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Metal Crash Cymbal:

I use the 20" as a wash ride. To be honest, i think sabin named this cymbal wrong. It shoud be named a crash/ride. For the 20" anyway. The thickness around the bell provides great articulation for grooves. It has a very powerful bell. And its great for individual crashes and was riding. I highly recommend it for heavy styles of music.

Sabian AAX Metal cymbals

By Kill tomorrow

from muskegon, mi

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Metal Crash Cymbal:

I own a 19 in crash, 20 in crash, 12 in splash, and 20 in ride all AAX Metal. I have 15 cymbals on my kit (all sabian) and these are by far my favorite. They are virtually indestructible. I have played all the major brands of cymbals and until i found the AAX metal i would break them as fast as i bought them. For metal they are perfect, they are loud, they sound pretty good considering how thick they are, but most importantly if you spend the money you know you are buying a cymbal that is going to last. So do yourself a favor if you frequently crack cymbals, spend the extra money and buy AAX metal.

Best Cymbal Ever

By Ryan F.

from Iselin New Jersey

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Metal Crash Cymbal:

I like loud cymbals and let me tell you this is so loud!. I play in a band Death Be Thy Part. The 19' crash is the best cymbal i have on my drums. I prefered it over the Zildian A Custom's because it sounded clearer to me. The sound is top of the line and i wouldnt use any other type of crash's. Highly recomended for people who play loud.

Very loud cymbal, good for crash-riding... Not for small clubs or practicing, I only use this crash in large rooms and outdoor shows.

One great crash!

By xhardcorex joix

from Clearwater, FL

Comments about Sabian AAX Series Metal Crash Cymbal:

I bought the Sabian AAX Series 18" Metal Crash about 8 months ago. I usually break thru crashes about once every 6 months. This crash has held up to lots of beating and dropping. One of my guitarists stepped on it and it didn't even break. It's heavy, but has great sound!
