Overview

With a double ring of response-enhancing holes, this thin radical Ozone Crash Cymbal responds rapidly with a combination of bright explosion and dirty agitation.

APX, a professional cymbal series, is from award-winning sound innovators: Sabian. The sheer attack of APX cuts through any music. To create this intensity, Sabian introduced new production processes that also result in a unique appearance for these cymbals. Featuring a 'High-Decibel' design the APX Ozone cymbal sounds super-bright, tonally tight, focused, and aggressive beyond belief to rip through rock-heavy grooves and blistering power chords like a laser through darkness. With the APX cymbal, nothing gets in your way.

APX cymbals are ideal for cutting through the raging guitars, heavy riffing and high-powered output of hard rock and heavy metal bands. Top drummers already playing APX include Ray Luzier (Korn), Neil Sanderson (Three Days Grace), George Kollias (Nile), John Kelly (Type-O Negative), and Rich Beddoe (Finger Eleven).

Good sound but doesnt last

By zach

from sun prairie wisconsin

I bought the cymbal and about 6 months after the purchase it had cracked completly through the edge of the cymbal to one of the outter rings. I wouldnt recommend this cymbal because it doesnt last. I would recommend paiste though because my dad played on two paiste crashes for about 8 years and they only look dirty.(partly because he doesnt clean them that much)They also survived a brutal year of me first learning to play as well. Paiste all the way!

Replaces a china

By Mark

from North Smithfield, RI

I am using this APX Ozone in place of a china, first off, sounds great, does what you want a china to do, trashy, decay quick, and seems to fit better with any kit it goes on. I even like the APX more then the HHX or AAX because those are brighter decay longer. I have the 18" Ozone and only downside is it looks like it will break easy, so far it has not.

Amazing sound, but ...

By Wayne

from West Islip, NY

This is probably the greatest sounding cymbal I have ever owned, although after only 3/4ths of a year this cymbal developed hairline cracks coming from the circle cut outs witch in only a short period of time grew and killed the cymbals sound.

Absolutely Beautiful

By Nebuchadnezzer

from San Diego

I picked one up a few months ago and to my surprise it hasn't broken yet. I've been curious about the o-zone cymbals ever since they came out, and when I heard the APX's I knew I had to get one. This is my favorite cymbal of the 8 I have. I use it as a "second" crash because you can't really ride it. While it is a great as a final crash in a phrase or in a cymbal fill it doesn't sound right played repetatively. It's super bright and super loud, you could really damage your ears with it. It almost has a china-like voice because of the holes. its like a sheet of metal breaking like glass- with sustain. Its the loudest, angriest, shimmer you will ever hear.

This Cymbal is Blazing!!!

By Vincent "Animal" Scott

from NJ

This is now my favorite Sabian. It cuts through the music like a razor sharp, yet it's musical enough to be played like a medium-thin crash. this cymbal is unbelievable. I happen to like it better than the original Ozone because of the brightness. Go get get this, it's a must-have for all Sabianites.
