"When we drummers want an accent sound within the music, we want it big and we want it now. It's the job of the crash cymbal to deliver that sound without complaint. Well, the HHX X-plosion Crash cymbal is up to the task. The cymbals are, as Sabian puts it, "heavily hammered for super-size surface marks." The effect of the large hammer marks is to give the cymbal a slightly "rippled" look instead of the more "dimpled" effect of smaller hammer marks. Then the cymbals are lathed with narrow grooves, which the company says gives them a "rapid, explosive response." The bell is hammered but left with a dark, unfinished look to it.
When they re hit, these cymbals produce a fast, up-front responds
around their edges, middles, and insides demonstrates the variety of pitches and tones that's present. It's almost like the sound is waiting-all bunched up and crouching down-ready to leap out when the stick strikes it. Even with a glancing blow that coaxes rather than batters, the sound is powerfully generated. While there is a beefy bottom, the cymbals still produce nice, warm overtones and a discernable ring at the upper end especially when they're played near or on the bell. In fact, if you don't use the bels to ride on, you'll deprive your music of some incredible sounds. The bells are large and sound very clear when hit. The vibrations from the cymbal give the bell a nice, wet tonal ring." - Kevin D. Osborn
" just fell in love with the way it crescendos. It has a very musical tone to it, and it cuts through without being over bearing. I love a cymbal that sounds like glass when you hit it and that is this cymbal." - Kristiant
