It's hard to find a cymbal these days with an excellent sound yet the durability of a thicker cymbal. This is a thin cymbal that is one of the best sounding cymbals I have ever played.

This is the ONLY cymbal, splashes included, that I have ever broken. This broke the second time a played it. I hit cymbals properly. Given that this is a very thin cymbal, I was not that surprised or devastated. I managed to get some recordings the first couple times playing it and was very pleased overall. Very bright and cutting with a great decay. However, I do not see this splash (7 inch) doing very well in a live, un mic'ed setting. More cracking without a doubt.
Sadly, I cannot recommend this cymbal to anyone. A waste of money, even though it is a really nice sound for the first couple of times playing.

    Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

    I own other evolution crashes 16" 18" and 10" splash so I decided to order the 12" splash. When it came I was very disappointed in the sound. It was very flat and sounded like a pot of metal. Poor quality control on Sabian. Otherwise their HHX evolutions are great.

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

        I already own a few of these Evo cymbals. The ones I already had are beyond excellent. I was wanting a cymbal I could use as a small, super bright, crash with just a hint of splash. This 12'' splash is right on the money. It has a broad, clean sound with a quick decay and just the right amount of a splashy shimmer. I would recommend listening to samples on the Sabian site. I've played both rock and jazz with this one and it's very versatile. I think this one cymbal would be suitable as a primary "go to" for a minimal kit such as in a dixieland setup. I already had the 9'' and it's an awesome splash. But the 12'' is one of my favorite cymbals out of the 13 I have on my kit. GET IT!

        Beautiful sound

        By Jared

        from Roslyn, New York

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

        I thought I'd check out this splash since Dave Weckl is a favorite of mine and just WOW. This thing is THE PERFECT SPLASH, it's got such a fast response and projects so well, it sounds literally splashy. Great cymbal and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a new splash, a must try for all experienced drummers. This splash is also extremely durable, I occasionally play metal, so I sometimes wail on this thing, and it really does handle a beating well. Great for all styles of music as well.

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

        I have the 7" 10" 12" and the 17" Effeks in my rig. They sound very good with just the right splash noise and decay, the harmonics are impressive, and as much as I love my three UFIP's splashes, the HHX record GREAT!

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

        I managed to pick this little baby up to add to my harem of Sabians... I love it. It actually has enough volume at just the right spectrum to cut through the music. Musical and tough, it's been a great addition to the set. Looks beautiful, sounds even better.

        Excellent Splash

        By Joszef

        from Albuquerque, New Mexico

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Splash Cymbal:

        I was drawn to the Evolution Splash 10" because of it's mild "trashy" sound. This is a excellent standout effect (especially in combination with my AAX splash) that is FUN to play. It's really thin and not especially loud, but loud enough if you use it in the "right" places. I love the bright brilliant finish with a kinda' raw bell. Also, you can really make out the hammer blow marks too. It's a very attractive looking splash. I ordered this through my local GC. It came fast and s&h was free. I'm very happy with GC and the Evolution Splash.
