Extremely fast and very bright, the SABIAN 8" AAX Splash provides plenty of penetrating cut.
A Modern Bright Splash
If you prefer your splash cymbals to respond extremely fast and very bright, with strong, penetrating cut, the 8” AAX Splash may be for you! Punchy and penetrating, it cuts through the loudest music, and works extremely well in modern musical genres – from metal to hip-hop, the AAX Splash delivers the goods.
What is it Good For?
Very few cymbals focus on projecting pure, bright and shimmering sounds like AAX. It’s a sound that’s ideal in the studio and ideal on stage. The 8” AAX Splash is no exception. An extra-thin model, it’s transparent, extremely bright and very fast, ensuring penetrating power that cuts in any setting. So you can take it onstage with the confidence that your perfectly-timed accents get heard. Or take it to the studio – this is a cymbal that practically EQ’s itself. Your bandmates – and the recording engineer – will love you!
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!
