AAX Series Overview

When you think AAX, think of a cymbal you can play all day long on modern or mainstream music – with a range as wide as Bruno Mars to Meshuggah. Definitely check out the brand new Thin and Medium crashes – they sound like HEAVEN.

  • STYLE: Modern
  • SOUND: Bright
  • METAL: B20
  • FINISH: Natural or Brilliant

The 18″ AAX Medium Crash from SABIAN introduces a whole new palette of sound to the AAX line. The larger raw bell adds more meat for more projection. A whole new style of hammering – much more visible on the surface of the cymbal due to the larger, rounder peen – makes for a more complex and slightly darker crash. At the same time, more highs are introduced into the sound, resulting in a wider band of frequency. For drummers, that means brighter highs and more complex lows. SABIAN has always pushed the boundaries of innovation, using the latest manufacturing technology to answer new trends in music and sound. AAX Medium Crashes are no exception, answering the call for brighter, faster, more complex crashes.






    The SABIAN Story

    For Drummers Who Don't Follow the Crowd.

    There are tons of cymbal manufacturers. We are not a manufacturer. We MAKE each cymbal for a drummer.

    No two of our cymbals are the same. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? Just like you.

    Not everyone gets it. We like that. Popular can’t mean what’s best. Sabians are just right.

    We’ll never compromise in our craft. Love us or hate us — we’re fueled by our drummers.

    Unleashing Cymbal Craft for Unbound Drummers

    Robert (Bob) Zildjian restlessly fretted over the quality, sound, and relevance of the cymbals available at the time. So, he founded SABIAN in 1981 and opened SABIAN in Meductic, New Brunswick Canada.

    We are still here. Still breaking down barriers and rules.

    The SABIAN Vault is a global center for cymbal and sound innovation.

    The no excuses attitude of Bob Zildjian guides us still. We never hold back.

    Neither does Sabian’s drummers and percussionists. They choose from vintage to modern, from dark to bright, from traditional to downright eclectic. They recognize no boundaries.

    Today, Sabian’s offices and depots are all over the globe and distribute in 120 countries.

    Cutting Edge, Not Classic

    The drummer defines the cymbal, not the other way around.

    We constantly forge the future of cymbal craft to give you the right and best starting point in creating your sound.

    SABIAN is family. Look at a few cymbals here. They deserve the reputation for being creative catalysts for drummers around the world.
