Watch a video demonstration of this cymbal:
The crash is a cymbal no serious drummer would ever find himself or herself without. A definite must-have for more experienced drummers laying down bigger, deeper grooves, this accenter speaks with authority and really delivers on its promises of being heard.
It features an explosive, full response sound and bright, high-end tones for increased cutting power that muscles through surrounding music. And once you hear the difference, you're sold on it.
Maybe that's why AAX cymbals have such a wide and multi-genre following. In fact, those who play Sabian AAX Stage Crash cymbals are as diverse as the many different styles of music they play. Highly sought after session drummer BJ Genten, performer/educator Dr. Thom Hasenpflug, the Director of Percussion Studies at Idaho State University and Canadian country rock drummer Chad Melchert are just a few of the drummers who use the Stage Crash in their set-up.
You'll love the crash for accenting metal, rock and pop songs, but jazz, soul and R&B players will also find strategic places in their music for the modern, shimmering sound of these cymbals.
Part of the Sabian AAX line, the Stage Crash is formed from a durable B20 bronze alloy with a brilliant finish, precise hammering detail and pinpoint lathing that all work together to create the unique sound personality. The AAX's premier "Dynamic Focus" design ensures optimum response at all volume levels from lowest to loudest and provides a pure sound thatís free of distracting and conflicting overtones.
