Sabian 18" AAX O-Zone Crash

18" Crash Cymbal

Following the success of the HHX Evolution O-Zone Crash, Sabian has introduced the AAX O-Zone Crash. Featuring the innovative multi-hole O-Zone design created by the award-winning company, the AAX O-Zone Crash cymbal is a thin, highly responsive model available in three sizes: 16", 18", and 20". The 16" is perforated by six 1-1/2" holes, the 18" and 20" by eight 1-1/2" holes.

Removing such a substantial amount of metal to create these holes reduces the weight of the cymbal and reduces tension in the metal, thereby accelerating its response rate, for faster, fuller crashing. And while AAX crashes are known for their bright, shimmering sound, the holes in the AAX O-Zone Crash affect the movement of vibrations through the metal to introduce a degree of dark agitation to the sound. This produces a response that is a combination crash and Chinese cymbal.

This model, like the darker sounding HHX Evolution O-Zone, is so responsive as a crash and for crescendos that it can be played by stick, mallet or hand, making it ideal for drummers and percussionists playing any style of music.

Like all Sabian AAX cymbals the AAX O-Zone Crash is hand crafted from Sabian's secret process B20 "cast" bronze, a combination of 80% copper with silver and 20% tin. A proprietary hand-guided hammering process and hand lathing combine to give this and all AAX cymbals a crisp, clean and clear sound at all volumes.

  • AAX O-Zone Model
  • Brillant finish
  • Multi-Hole O-Zone Design
  • Thin and ultra-responsive
  • Fine, clear and powerful sound at all volume levels

Produktbewertung des Sabian AAX O-Zone 18 Zoll Crash
Mario B., 11.10.2010
Ein tolles Becken welches stabiler ist als es auch dem ersten Blick durch seine Löcher erscheinen lässt. Klanglich lässt es sich zwischen Crash und China zuordnen. Mich überzeugte vor allem der helle Klang und klare Ansprache, die sich perfekt mit anderen Serien von Sabian, vor allem der HHX und AAX, als akzentsetzendes Becken einsetzen lässt. Ein teures aber tolles Becken, was sich in jedem Fall als besonders Becken ins Set integrieren lässt. Allerdings würde ich es nicht als großes "Standartcrash" was man öfters nutzt verwenden, nicht wegen der Qualität, sondern wegen der klanglichen Abhebung, die am besten durch "selteneren Gebrauch" besser zu Geltung kommt. Sinnvoll also nur, wenn man einige andere Becken im Set hat. Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis: Top!

Superbe son
JasonF, 21.02.2015
Cette cymbale crash ce différencie des autres cymbales par un son plus sombre et sale, à mi-chemin entre une crash et une china. Je suis très satisfait du son et du look, reste a savoir si les trous ne la fragilise pas trop dans le temps...
