Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

I bought a 15" aax xplosion,16"aax xplosion fast crash, 18" aax xplosion fast crash. The 16" I bought over the phone as soon as I heard it I knew the cymbal sounded good. The 18" I hit in passing though the drum section at GC and thought that sounded good. I bought all three for around $340 New, it would be around $640. But all three have prints that won't come off. I have cleaned them over 8 times.

Crash, then dissipates

    Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

    Nice fast crash. The Sabian AAX is a good product line, and if you're looking for a crash that explodes then dissipates quickly, this is it. I have the 16", and it does what it's supposed to do. The crash is bright and powerful, but there is a underlying, dark gong sound. How do you get a bright crash with a dark undertone? I can't figure that one out, but if you listen for it hard enough, you'll hear it. Nonetheless, the bell is nice; the crash is nice; and, the crash tapers off quickly, nice. I have it set up to compliment my AA thin crash with a heavier, brighter sound. I also use it a lot when recording. I like to crash my ride, but the sound engineer can't control all the lingering overtones on the ride. So, I moved this cymbal next to my ride for recording, and it all works out. And, the dark gong sound? You can't hear it on the recording. It is washed out by the crash.

      Really compliments my 16" HHX Evolution. Next will be the 18" Fast crash to compliment my 18" Evolution crash.

      Awesome Crash

      By Viktor Pacheco

      from New York, NY

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      Initially I was skeptical of buying a thinner crash, but this has been my longest lasting crash I've had yet. Almost three years strong now. It plays easier than the regular AAXplosion Crash too.

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      I bought the 16" version. I use this Crash for R&B, Pop, and Rock. The response is true to the AAX line: Full and Explosive. The sustain is short. That's why I wanted a "Fast Crash". I have it set opposite my 16" AAX Stage Crash. The Decay on the Fast Crash is about a quarter of the sustain on the Stage model. Now, I have the ability to choose.

      Sabian AAX fast crash

      By Timothy Koske

      from Columbia,MO

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      I own the 15" cymbal and it sounds good. It has a super fast decay and the stick goes through it like butter.it opens up easily and sound the best when played softly.It has a nice tone to it is darker than I thought it would be.the cymbal is very thin so hard hitters beware.

      By Ramy Karam

      from Canada

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      I own the 14" and I am loving this cymbal. It's got a nice bright glassy tone, perfect for accents but not too bad for washriding either. I am planning on getting the 16 AAX Xplosion crash too.

      The best I've played.

      By Bryan H

      from Chicago Illinois

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      What struck me immediately about this crash was that I could open it up with just a finger. I love the bright attack and slightly dark sustain and shimmer. Sabian describes its qualities well - an attack that cuts and "gets out of the way quickly". It's great for any style of music, really. Amazing response, attack, cut, and sustain. It's also my favorite crash for "wash riding" on. I've had mine for over 2 years now and it's still the best crash I've ever had the pleasure of playing. Rock, jazz, metal, concert percussion - it works for just about everything!

      Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

      They have it listed at 159 for a 19". That's why I bought it and am not looking back! Great sound.
