Pour le rock!
Rémy P., 23.05.2011
étant batteur dans un groupe de rock et utilisateur de la marque Sabian depuis des années, je considère la AAXplosion comme la meilleure de sa catégorie aussi bien en brillance qu'en sustain. Très stable, elle possède une gamme de sons très intéressante aussi bien en attaque qu'en rythmique.
J'en suis extrêmement satisfait en tout point!

Trotz tollem Sound leider nicht zu empfehlen..
tm31, 25.04.2019
Zunächst eines vorweg: Ich spiele seit rund 20 Jahren Schlagzeug und habe bisher noch kein anderes Becken als Sabian gekauft oder auch nur angespielt, bin also wirklich aus tiefstem Herzen Sabian-Fan.

Trotzdem habe ich mich jetzt aus folgenden Gründen entschlossen, mir eine neue Becken-Firma zu suchen.
An meinem Set befinden sich genau zwei Crash-Becken, darunter (war) ein 18" ISO Crash und das o.g. AAXplosion. Beide habe ich vor circa 3,5 Jahren gekauft. Zu der Zeit war ich noch mit einer Band regelmäßig auf Tour, sodass die beiden regelmäßig auch zum Einsatz kamen. Und genau hier ist die Verarbeitung (leider) an ihre Grenzen gestoßen, denn nach relativ kurzer Zeit (etwas mehr als 1 Jahr) haben sich Risse im ersten Becken gebildet (trotz mehr als ordentlichen Umgangs und Pflege). Die Becken waren nach ihrem Kauf rund 15/16 Monate im Einsatz. Eines wies (wie oben geschrieben) zu diesem Zeitpunkt schon Risse auf.
Nachdem die Becken die folgenden 1,5 Jahre sicher verwahrt in einem Case verbracht haben, habe ich mein Set vor knapp einem halben Jahr wieder aufgebaut und im Studio angefangen zu trommeln; das eine musste ich daraufhin wegen der oben erwähnten Risse ersetzen, gestern hat das zweite "den Geist aufgegeben" - nach einer "Netto-Spielzeit" von zwei Jahren, das ist für ein Becken dieser Preisklasse und dieser Qualitätsansprüche zu wenig.

Fazit: Der Sound der Sabian-Becken ist leider großartig und genau der, den ich in meinem Set suche und will. Leider hilft das auch nicht über die mangelnde Verarbeitung hinweg (und auch nicht der wenig kooperative Kundenservice von Sabian). Mir bleibt jetzt nichts anderes übrig, als mich einen Tag lang in unseren lokalen Musik-Store zu setzen und nach einem alternativen Becken-Sound zu suchen, denn regelmäßig 18" Crash-Becken von Sabian zu ersetzen ist a) nicht mein Anspruch b) mir zu teuer und c) nicht meine Erwartung an Becken der oberen Klasse.

Potente
Josep P., 10.05.2012
Tenia el crash de 16 AAX Stage de Sabian situado a la izquierda i encontraba a faltar uno más potente y un poco menos brillante a la derecha para finaizar muchas frases i no romperme la cintura.
Despues de escuchar muchos en Thomann ( la verdad es que el poder oir los instrumentos en esta página es una de las mejores prestaciones que tiene) me decidí por otro Sabian y realmente el nombre de AAX AAXplosion está más que acertado ya que es muy potente y limpio, no tan brillante como el Stage, pero tampoco es oscuro.

Como nota negativa el acabado de la campana que tiene un aspecto como de oxidao, supongo que por el tipo de fabricación, pero no importa al final. Por cierto el sonido de la campana es para aprovecharlo con ritmo.

Genau mein Sound, seit 2011
Heiko J. H., 24.11.2020
Das ist nun schon mein zweites 18" Crash aus der Serie und für meine Musikrichtung genau richtig. (Laut und energisch). Gute Haltbarkeit, aber wie jedes Becken nicht unkaputtbar. Auch innerhalb der Serie klingen die Becken stimmig.
Natürlich klingt jedes Becken anders, aber ich hatte noch keins angespielt, welches komplett aus der Reihe tanzen würde. Spricht für eine gewissenhafte Herstellung.
