Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

I was amazed could not be happier this is exactly what I was looking forward to owning and I enjoyed the fact that I bought it online and didn't have to go to the store and check out a bunch of different cymbals.

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.

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.

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!

Great crashes

By Daved

from Brooklyn, New York

Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

The applosion fast crash are very unique crashes under the original applosion crashes. Since they are thin cymbals they have a warmmer sound than the applosion crash which is much more brighter and the pitch tends to take some time to decay, rather than the aax plosion fast crash. These cymbals speak quickly they are not too bright or dark but just prefect because of the weight. I am looking at the 18 or 19 inch since they are the best configuration for my 17'' K.Custom Dark Crash. If you are looking for a great crash that decays fast then this is the crash to buy but get the warranty which saves you from buying another one if the cymbal gets damage.

my favorite cymbal

By Kristian

from Rio Rancho, New Mexico

Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

Let me first start by saying that I have a ton of AAX series cymbals already. 15 & 18" AAXplosions, 16" studio and stage crash. 20" Stage ride. The AAXplosion fast crash however is becoming my favorite one. As mentioned by other reviewers, yes, it is thin, I am not crazy about that but if you don't beat the tar out of it there is no reason it shouldn't last forever. I really like the sound of it though. It is excellent as a fill or accent crash. The attack is sharp and cutting with a fast decay which is why I like it. It makes a statement without being over powering and since it decays fast it doesn't drown out the rest of you next few beats. I placed it right next to my hats so that when I need a fast accent or fill crash it is right there, sounding sweet. One thing that attracted me to this cymbal at GC was that when I would hit the edge of it with my knuckle, and it builds to a VERY nice cresendo. I must of hit that thing 20 times like that just to listen to that beautiful sound. I decided right there that I had to have it. I picked up the 16" model. This cymbal is a must have

Great Cymbal

By Justin

from Maricopa, Arizona

Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

I bought the 17" and I love the sound of it. I think these sound better than the a regular explosion. It has a nice fast response that cuts through the music but then quickly decays. The only downside to it is that it is pretty thin. Like other reviewers have said, you can flex it with you hands very easily. If you hit the cymbal right and don't beat the heck out of them, the thickness shouldn't be a problem at all.

Great Cymbal!!!

By David Cervantes

from Houston, TeXas

Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

Well, I bought this cymbal like in the summer time. First off the sound of this cymbal is great! I have the 18inch, I have it to the left of my HHX Evolution Crash and the AAX is just a good partner with the HHX Evol. My only complain about this cymbal is that it is really thin, it didnt even last me a year, but good thing that I have the warranty. But I do recommend this cymbal but be sure to get the additional warranty just in case.

Powerful

By Ben

from Inverness, FL

Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

This is one of those cymbals that just begs to be hit. The 18" gives a powerful sound without much effort. Awsome sound! Not too dark, not too bright. Great for a "wall" of sound. Warning! This is a very thin cymbal! You can flex it in your hands rather easily... but a very nice fast crash. A bit powerful for a main crash but thats because of the style of music that I play.

Good Cymbals

By Davian

from Brooklyn,NY

Comments about Sabian AAX X-plosion Fast Crash Cymbal:

Getting to know about Sabian's new Plosion fast crashes was when I went to the guitar center in long island queens, ny they had just brought in the crashes and I was the first one to hear how they sound they sound great and fast. They have that awesome quick punch when you hit it. But the only I con thing that I didn't like about the cymbal it is extra thin weight and not very ideal for an hard hitter. But Sabian is always providing warranty for every broken or cracked cymbal. But is sounds great.
