A Bold, Bright Crash for Modern Musical Styles
The 16-inch Concept Crash marks a bold new direction for the Sabian AAX series, with more projection, sustain, and musicality than ever. Deeper and more aggressive hammering with a modified peen unlocks a hotter, higher-output brightness with a fast attack and more of the AAX character you love. Additionally, the 16-inch Concept Crash boasts a smooth pinpoint surface with a fully lathed brilliant finish, which ensures a balanced tonality at any volume level. Discover for yourself what the Concept series is all about.
The Sabian AAX line
Sabian’s AAX cymbals have been pushing envelopes and breaking new ground since 1993. Today’s redesigned AAX lineup is leaner, meaner, and primed to cover even more ground in the drumming market. Thin, Medium, and Heavy models now allow drummers to shop by weight, pitch, and projection. A new larger-peen hammering process makes the redesigned AAX collection a fortified blend of Sabian’s class-leading darkness and complexity across the board. Whatever style of music you play, great tone awaits you with Sabian AAX.
Sabian’s B20 bronze yields depth and musicality
Sabian casts its AAX cymbals from a centuries-old recipe of copper, tin, and silver — also known as B20 bronze. This bell bronze is one of the most musical alloys on earth. With Sabian’s old-world artisan craftsmanship, bell bronze is the secret to the 16-inch AAX Concept Crash’s ear-pleasing partials and complex characteristics.
