When you think AAX, think of a cymbal you can play all day long on modern or mainstream music – with a range as wide as Bruno Mars to Meshuggah.
"The 18" AAX Aero crash is so-named because it is full of holes. 19 rows of four small holes radiating from the center to the edge. The holes reduce the mass and thin the sound, making it shorter, faster and punchier. So Sabian has given the cymbal a large heavy bell, presumably to compensate and aid projection. The result is a fast-reacting, bright and splashy crash that will add startling new color to any set-up." - Geoff Nicholls
"The AAX Aero Crash cymbals sound very special, first of all there is the explosive, bright and cutting attack, which vehemently lodges in the ear canal. The sustain is idiosyncratic, bright and quite treble-heavy. It becomes significantly quieter after a short decay time, but then stands for a relatively long time with a transparent and gently modulating sound. The three models fit together very well in terms of tone and actually offer the same sound behavior, only in different pitches." - Ralf Mikolajczak
"Explosive, cutting attack. Very bright in the sustain, high-pitched, becomes significantly quieter in the decay, but the sustain remains for a relatively long time." - Team
"When I first struck one of the multi-hole Aero crashes, the unabashed shimmer jolted my senses and lanced my preconceptions. Although I was expecting a combination of flash, trash, and crash, the immediacy of the attack caught me off guard. The crux of the sound rocketed out and dissipated quickly, leaving a
metallic afterburn in its wake. The 18" felt the best in terms
of stick response. Some drummers might embrace the Aero as offering their ideal crash sound, while others could view it as a cool alter native for adding spice and color." - David Clauro
