These Hi-hats are so versatile! They sound great opened or closed, Also A very nice chick when closed. Crisp Clean, everything I was looking for. Although you should hear them before you buy them because everyones tastes are different in cymbals I would fully recommend them to drummers who want quality cymbals that can cut through music with a beautiful yet forceful tone.

When I first placed the "13 hats on the stand and let them click, my Minister of Music immediately turned around in amazement. I looked back with the same look. These hats have an awesome sound. The waves on the bottom hat release the air that sometimes gets trapped in the hats and allows for a crisp click and a ripply open hat sound. Because I have the smaller version, they are higher in tone than I'm used to, but I can definitely see myself getting used to it. I also do not struggle with volume. These things are clear, crisp, and loud. They are the best that I've ever heard. If you're considering, look no further. These will not dissapoint.
Wavy bottom designed to release air
At this price...you better believe they're quality and can withstand a beating.

    Comments about Sabian AAX X-Celerator Hi-Hats:

    I bought the 14" ones after hearing them played live and was fortunate to try before buying. They take a little getting used to and in my first gig was playing them too hard so had to consciously back off has they are so crisp with magnificent cut-through. They are so versatile and sound just as good playing soft country to hard rock. Love them!

    I love em

    Comments about Sabian AAX X-Celerator Hi-Hats:

    I got the 13" ones about a week ago and i love em. I found the pair used at a guitar center nearby for $150 and bought them on a whim. I had been playing my friends Zildjian ZBT hihats and was planning on getting a pair of those but decided to try a couple random hihats out first. I couldn't be happier. They have that nice crisp sound that i was looking for. The 13" are a little lighter and have a slightly higher pitch than the 14", so keep that in mind if you're looking at these.

    Wow!

    Comments about Sabian AAX X-Celerator Hi-Hats:

    Honestly these 14" hats are unbelievable. If your thinking of getting these hats, just do it. I've only had these hats for a short period, but they sound divine. They are so crisp and bright! This and the AAX 10" splash compliment each other quite well, as well as the 16" xplosion crash. Try it for yourself though, only you can decide what you like.

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-Celerator Hi-Hats:

      I tried the 14 inch at Guitar center they wern't for me to bright and quiet. I play 15 Paiste sound edge blck label but they cracked near edge as did 14 sound edge the 15 inch Sabians were close as I could find to that sound but in 15" sounded better. Stick definition clear on every note. i had to experiment to find right adjustment for me loosen top nut and open hats a bit more. The chick isn't as loud but the wash is amazing. i finally have that Buddy Rich sound. i don't play that style all hard rock & metal but love that sound. Crisp/bright pitch. You will love them. Bought mine used from music store for 1/2 retail so great deal

      You should really read this review.

      By Luke Luebrecht

      from Ohio

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-Celerator Hi-Hats:

      You know it is good if it says AAX.
      Rediculous features. Love the wavy bottom to let air escape to get the tight, crispy closed sound that everybody wants. It helps that the bottom is a lot thicker than the top, too. Also, something about the top cymbal makes it sound a little controlled. Meaning, that it won't sound like a freakin terrible crash/splash hybrid when played open. Mhmm.
      Looks beautiful. Sounds beautiful.
      Ehhhh, I really thought it was a steal, but I also got them for a really low price. Therefore, you should definately save up. My friend recently got the Meinl Byzance Dark hats, and I think these blow them outta the water.

      14 inch X-Celerator Hats

      By DanTheMan81-9sXsi

      from St.Michaels, MD

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-Celerator Hi-Hats:

      I bought these hi hats about a year ago and they are the best hi hats I have ever played. I initially had a pair of 14 inch Pitch Black Zildjian hi hats and they don't sound nearly as good as the X-celerator hi hats. Not to mention that Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers uses them, and so does Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy and The Damned Things. Buy these Hats!!!!

      I bought these cymbals about 10 months ago and they haven't disappointed me yet. I am in the process of starting my first band and these sound great even with the loudest guitar and vocals you can play. Buy these hi-hats!!!!
