They're ok, just not for me.

About Me Experienced

Comments about Sabian AAX X-celerator Hi-Hat Cymbals Brilliant:

Bought the 14" pair. Too heavy for my taste, they sounded very "clanky" to me when played wide open. Closed sounded better, they had some pre-eq-ed qualities. I'd say these would be work well if your not using double bass pedals and can control the hats.


Love love love it!

    Comments about Sabian AAX X-celerator Hi-Hat Cymbals Brilliant:

    I didn't get what I expected from these. If I could put them on a stand and have them as a second set of hi hats for playing fast stuff (like Metallica type stuff) they would be perfect, hands down best hi hats ever. But that's just using them with out them being open. Any time I try to play music required that I open and close them they lose their luster. They don't chick very loud when you close them, and trying to clamp them down and get a tight sound is next to impossible.
    Bottom line, if you want a second set to have off to the side for playing fast and closed, look no further, but if you want something you can play varied, look for something else, something that doesn't have a wavy bottom.


    Love Them

    I've played on many different pairs of hats in clubs, bars, studios, etc. but I always love it when I come back home and play on these. I own a 14" pair and I love it.

    Comments about Sabian AAX X-celerator Hi-Hat Cymbals Brilliant:

    The AAX Celerator has the perfect feel for jazz, rock, metal, or really any genre of music you're into. The bottom hat gives it the washy sound while the top hat, when pressed down gives it the *ping sound. Amazing Hi hat. If you get this hi hat, get the brilliant finish! It looks so much nicer!
