From classic rock to old school punk rock and hip-hop - that’s AA. Tight, controlled, but loud AF when you hit it hard.
AA Holy China
Delivers all of the unique trashy tone of the holy china, with less volume.
"With their blinding finish and numerous perforations, the Holy Chinas have an aura of menace about them. The looks don't deceive, and while note-wise the cymbals are authentically trashy and china-like, the degree of volume and aggression contained within them is almost off the scale. Ear-shredding levels of attack mean that they don't so much slice through the mix as blast a hole in it. A tap of a stick results in a shiver of electric intensity; a full-blooded hit practically illuminates the room." - Adam Jones
"It is well known that the Holy China cymbals are very loud and snappy, and nothing has changed in that regard. The 17" and 19" are the right combination for the club gig. 19" plus 21" station wagon is then the right choice for the larger stages. This aggressive sound can be used particularly well with crisp funk rock played. With a hearty playing style, a certain trash factor develops in the attack and a mids in the sustain. If you hit the cymbals a little harder, they remain astonishingly transparent, but still deliver the solid upper mids, so that they also appear relatively penetrating." - Ralf Mikolajczak
"An amazing balance of flush and bright sounds, can go wrong." - Timmy
"19" for a china is pretty big imo, but thanks the holes his sustain is not too long and it's prefect for both explosions as well as keeping the time. I prefer this version much more than the brilliant because it Has a little bit bit of darkness without compromising that beautiful classic china higher pitch." - Luca
