The AAXtreme Chinese cymbal's extra-fast and terrifically punchy response is raw, dirty, very tight - almost Kang-like - and super loud for maximum accent.

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.

So I have been spending sooo much time trying to look for the PERFECT china. And boy did i find it. This china has a nice high crisp but strong striking punch at the same time. i bought the 17" and am very pleased. if you want to hear a band that has this exact china go look up the band "August Burns red" he uses it in there album messengers. He uses the 19" version. i am very happy with my china though. i would reccommend this to every drummer. i infact showed this china to an employee at guitar center and he fell in love and put in his order right after mine. So i would recommend this to everybody. So crisp its heavenly. so thats why i gave it 5 stars. so go look up the band i posted and listen to his china. im in love :)

My 19" lasted only 2 months before it cracked. I got a warranty replacement and it lasted 1/2 hour, i'm not kidding. I suggest the 19" paragon china. It's not as trashy, but it has lasted 34 months. Buying crash and china cymbals from any company, any series, any cost, is a gamble.

      Trash. The good trash.

      About Me Experienced

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      When you're looking for a classic trashy and explosive china, don't look too much further. I finally decided on this cymbal after extensive reviews of many chinas around the 19-20" range, and I'm glad I went with this one. A simple search on audio files or studio demonstrations of this cymbals proves that this does give you the classic "chhh" china sound. I would suggest getting the brilliant version though, it looks better and sounds just a tad better to me. This is a thin cymbal, and it has unfortunately cracked on me after 22 months of moderate use. There are about 3-4 small to moderate sized cracks, but I'm going to let Sabian decide if they are manufacturer defects or not.

      The Perfect China

      By David Vivirito

      from Dallas, Texas

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      I've got the 19 inch version of the China cymbal, and it fits my tastes perfectly. It has a very long sustain, a very dark tone, it's very versatile and it's very trashy, unlike the Zildjian or Paiste China's which have a very metallic sound. I highly recommend this China to any one whose looking for a new piece to their kit!

      Packs Quite the Punch

      By BPO23

      from Stillwater, MN

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      Amazing quality, amazing sound, it's made by Sabian, you cannot go wrong with this china, if you're looking for one, or replacing one, GET THIS NOW.
      This is an amazing product. It will cut through ANYTHING, if you're playing anything from jazz accents to metal breakdowns, this will do it's job.
      It's a Sabian, using the new AAX modeling, it has a beautiful design. Plus, this HAS AN ACTUAL BELL, and has a very cutting, loud and trashy punch.
      I have a 15" and fell in love with it, so I plan to pick up a 19" fairly soon, a price this low for a cymbal of this quality? It doesn't get better than that.

      AAXtreme = AAMazing

      By porky88888888

      from Indiana

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      I went to my local drum shop looking to buy a china. It was going to be my first one and I had no preconceived ideas about which kind to get. But when I hit this thing I had to have it! It was by far the best sounding china I had ever heard! Very loud and trashy but with a nice balance and sustain and it cut like nobody's business.. It just stood out sooo much from every other china I demoed.

      GET IT!!

      You should really read this review.

      By Luke Luebrecht

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      It will eat your soul. Trashy, a little washy, but mainly oriental and loud. And loud. Yeah.
      Stunning. I hit itand I am pretty sure it punched me in the chest. The most freaking brutal 19" chinese cymbal I have ever had the pleasure to beat with a stick. I also like how it has like an actual freaking normal BELL. Not a stupid little metal thing that looks like a doorknob. Gosh.
      Wicked quality. A pleasure to own. Matt Greier also use it on the entire Messengers album. Need I say more? I will.
      Get the 19". the price is unbeatable. c'mon people.

      Fantastic Cymbal

      By Zach Everett

      from Pennsylvania

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      I highly recomend this cymbal to anyone in search of a new china. It is a wonderful and very versatile cymbal.
      This cymbal has a very nice and thick trash sound to it. It has a bit of wash so it is not 100% trash and actually sounds good. It is everything a china cymbal should be in all sizes.
      This is a very durable cymbal and will survive the beating that every drummer gives their china cymbal.
      The price is wonderful...you get a perfect sounding china for an affordable price!

      Fantastic!!

      By Noah-bu1J8

      from Connecticut

      Comments about Sabian AAXtreme Chinese Cymbal:

      This is an excellent China! Although you can get this cheaper in other places, it is totally worth the buy. I got it for christmas, and I had explored a bunch of other Chinas but this was by far my favorite, and playing metal you need a China that can cut through everyone, and that is exaclty what this China does. My only complaint is the flange is large, so you need to postion it in a way you can still get a sound without hitting the flanger dead on, but other then that I highly recomend buying this cymbal!!
