Sabian 18in AAX X-plosion Brilliant Medium Crash Cymbal - 21887XB
Extremely fast and providing a shimmering modern bright sound with innovative Dynamic Focus at all volumes., the 18-inch Sabian AAX X-Plosion crash cymbal is bursting with bright, explosive attack to deliver penetrating definition with total presence and power. Every cymbal has its strengths and limitations. Hitting a smaller or thinner cymbal harder and harder to get a bigger sound or make it louder isn't the answer. It wasn't designed to be so loud. So don't use small, thin cymbals for high-volume, hard-hitting playing (unless you want a contrast in your set-up... but don't hit them as hard as the rest.) For volume, power and durability, choose bigger and heavier models. And consider the brighter sounding series, like AA, AAX, PRO and Sonix. Their sounds are higher pitched and more effective at cutting through a loud band. Lower pitched series, like Hand Hammered and HHX, also offer models suitable for powering any style of music.
