The AAX Series Stage ride cymbal provides the ultimate balance of bright stick definition and controlled wash. Highly effective and versatile.

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.

This is probably one of the most versitile rides ive ever played! It has a little more wash then what im used to, but if you play in a band it just blends in with the music. It's definatly crashable and loud but its sensitive and colorful when you need it to be. The bell is high pitched and cuts through any chorus. Plain and simple this ride rocks!!

This ride is, without a doubt, very nice and high quality. Although I would not choose it as my first pick. First off, it has a lot of overtone to it, and it is not very pingy. The bell is very small and weak, providing a very minimal ping. This cymbal would probably work best for jazz players, but for those heavy/death metal players, you could definitely find a better choice.

      Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

      For 10 years i had used a 21" full ride by a Swedish manufacturer. It was an amazing cymbal but extremely loud. When it finally cracked i needed something to tie me over so when a Sabian 20" stage ride came across my path so i picked it up with the intention that "i will use this until i can afford another like my last one". boy was i wrong! I didnt fall in love right away but the more i played it the more i leaned what a good ride should sound like. Not and overpowering wall of sound whenever you hit the chorus but a blending lift that fits in with the rest of you kit without taking over. Its medium in weight so it can be crashed. The bell looks a bit small but doesn't sound it. As the the name STAGE RIDE suggests you could think it would have a dominant commanding sound on stage. i have found quite the opposite. To be honest it is very well mannered cymbal. My only complaint is that it may be a little too well balanced. Such a perfect blend of ping, wash, crash, gong, bright but in no way sharp that it almost lacks character...

      almost...

        Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I went through many rides trying to find the sound I was hearing in my head. I had many fancier models from Zildjian and Sabian. This is the one I heard someone playing (the 21" natural finish), and went, thats it! That's the one. It just has the sweetest sound with wood and nylon tips, excellent crashability, decent bell, and is very dynamic. I use it for funk, jazz, and rock. Such a simple looking cymbal, no fancy raw metal or lathing and hammering, but trust me, this is the one.

        Pretty fantastic cymbal

        Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I bought the 21 inch natural finish Sabain AAX Stage ride and it sounds very good as a ride cymbal and can be crashed on quite nicely. I play in a pop-punk band so i crash on it a lot. Souds amazing. All of my Sabian AAX Stage series cymbals have worn well and still sound good after all of the pounding. Great price for the quality and performance it gives!

        A lot of wash for my taste, but a great bell and sweet ping tone

        By John Shinal

        from Raleigh, NC

        Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I play a variety of styles at moderate volumes. I like sweet ride tones with a lot of ping. I'm fairly happy with this cymbal - it compared very well to others in its class, and I got a great deal on it used. However it has a LOT of wash for me, and I'd prefer it to be a bit tighter in that respect. It will build and roar a little if I get careless, but when I control properly it will behave also. I actually use a moongel on it to tame it a little (I know, a bad compromise. :-D ). A sweet sounding cymbal, a clear and pleasant bell, works for a wide vaiety of styles. Nice pingy ride tone with a darker but pleasant oriental wash.

        Do you want over tones

        By Coldtoke

        from Canada

        Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I found this cymbal didnt compare to the 22"Paragon that I am using. It didnt have the response or as much colour or overtones I cant see why you would need any muffling on this cymbal.

        Great cymbal

        By Mike

        from Milwaukee, WI

        Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I've been real stubborn about the 'right' ride upgrade to my kit. Found this gem for sale in Kenosha used and got it for super cheap. This bad boy is amazing. great bell, fantastic bow. Just a great overall cymbal. I haven't tested it live yet, but I'm already loving it. Pick it up if you want a great versatile ride.

        Ping, wash, and definition

        Comments about Sabian AAX Series Stage Ride Cymbal:

        I've owned a 20" for 8 years now, and it gets better with age. The stick definition is unbelievable, the bell cuts through any decibel level, and the bow can crash and wash with the best of them. Brush it for jazz, or smash it for metal, it will suit you fine.
