The Sabian HHX Complex Thin Crash Cymbal, an exquisitely dark 18" crash cymbal designed for a wide range of musical applications. Combining Sabian's innovative hammering techniques from their most popular cymbal lines, the HHX Complex Crash produces a rich, sweet tone with musical nuance. Its thin profile and raw bell provide a quick, articulate response with a short sustain, ideal for intricate or technical playing. The HHX Complex Thin Crash is a musically versatile cymbal suited for drummers and percussionists of all styles.

Dark, Nuanced Tone from Advanced Hammering

The HHX Complex Crash employs a combination of traditional HH hammering and the more aggressive HHX hammering style, resulting in a cymbal with a exquisitely dark, expressive tone. Its thin weight allows the cymbal to open up quickly with a mellifluous, shimmering crash that decays into a sweet, musical sustain. The raw bell further enhances the cymbal's complex overtones and responsiveness.

Versatile for All Musical Styles

While optimized for more intricate playing, the HHX Complex Thin Crash has a tone versatile enough for all musical applications. Its articulation and musicality serve drummers and percussionists in rock, jazz, fusion, progressive and world music styles. The cymbal's thin, responsive profile also makes it an ideal choice for drummers with a technical or intricate approach.

Premium B20 Bronze for Rich Sound

The HHX Complex Crash is cast from B20 bronze, a premium alloy prized for its musical properties. B20 bronze gives the cymbal a warm, rich tone with a desirable blend of sustain, spread and shimmer. This high quality bronze contributes to the cymbal's overall musical versatility and premium sound.
