X-Plosive Crash Delivers Presence and Power

Engineered for immediate response and huge output, this medium-thin Crash cymbal is perfectly designed to cut through the thousands of watts of amplified sound created by modern rock, pop, country, and hip-hop bands — not to mention their screaming fans. As a result, AAX X-Plosion Crashes more than deliver the goods when it comes to penetrating massive volumes onstage — they kill it. With sparkling, bright presence and total power, the 18” AAX X-Plosion Crash gets you heard – and felt.

Redefining the Modern Cymbal

With their high-profile raw bell, pinpoint lathing and Sabian-exclusive sustain-enhancing process, AAX-X-Plosion Crashes have won multiple awards since bursting on the scene in 2000. Just hit one and it’s easy to see why. From the instant, explosive crash right down to the soft, buttery feel — this is a cymbal that has redefined what a Crash cymbal can be.

Sabian AAX – Modern Bright

AAX changed everything. Before AAX, most cymbals were manufactured using processes that had been around for centuries. AAX was the first B20 Bronze cymbals designed and manufactured using completely modern lathing and hammering techniques. The result? Increased brightness, cut and musicality – for the widest dynamic range ever achieved. And suddenly, the bright, explosive tone of AA cymbals was available even at low volume. AAX uses hand-guided, high-pressure hammering for instant, bright responses. Pinpoint lathing is used to achieve increased sensitivity and wide dynamic range – even at low volume. And the high profile shape delivers cutting, high-pitched tone. In the studio or on stage, in every style of music, only AAX delivers such consistently bright, crisp, clear, and cutting responses. AAX is the ultimate Modern Bright sound.

Who Plays AAX?

A perennial best-selling Sabian series, AAX is played by top Sabian artists.

Hand-crafted – Every Step of the Way

Like all Sabian B20 Cast Cymbals, AAX X-Plosion Crashes begin their life in the Foundry, where a centuries-old family process is used to create the most musical and durable of all cymbal alloys. Inside the Foundry, Sabian metallurgists combine carefully measured amounts of Copper, Tin and Silver, heat it to 2100 degrees Fahrenheit, and pour it into casts. At this stage, it’s hard to believe these castings will eventually become a powerhouse cymbal like the AAX-X-Plosion Crash. But first, they must go on a journey through Multi-rolling for intensity, Hammering for tone, Lathing for enhanced response and projection, and a final Aging process in the legendary Sabian Vault for optimum sound. In a sense, it’s a journey that’s only complete when you play the cymbal of your choice — an evolution from idea to reality. It is this process — innovation blended with traditional cymbal-making — that allowed AAX to make history as the first modern cymbal concept in B20 bronze.
