"If youre looking for some classic yet modern-sounding hand-hammered cymbals to serve a wide variety of needs, check out these HHX Complex models. Sabian even put together a three-piece
prepack comprising 15" Medium hi-hats, a 19" Thin crash, and a 22" Medium ride. That would be a great place to start." - Michael Dawson
"The HHX Complex cymbals feature generous hammering on the top and bottom. The bell is also heavily hammered and is unlathed (raw). The lathing pattern is tight, and the thin weight and hammering results in tonally complex sounds. The 15- and 14-inch Complex Hats are both of medium weight. They have a beautiful splashiness with enough body to give them some volume and
heft. Stick definition is excellent on both. Intricate stick and shoulder patterns are a breeze, and the foot "chip" is very clean and cutting. The HHX Complex crashes blew me away. They share sonic attributes with the rides, but they're unique in the ways they accomplish it. The crash sound is explosive. It barks with authority
and gets out of the way quickly. The 16-inch Complex Thin Crash erupts with a dark trashiness that most cymbals this size donâ€™t
dare try. The 18- and 19-inch crashes have a full-bodied crash, good stick definition and a playable bell, making them excellent allaround cymbals. My favorite of the bunch was the 21-inch Complex Thin Ride. It opens up and speaks immediately. The beautifully dark, almost trashy wash never builds up too much and is very controllable. Stick definition comes through with a sweetness that balances out the shimmering darkness. The bell is dark, but very controlled and cutting if you need it be. The 22-inch Complex Medium ride has similar characteristics, however its heavier weight puts the emphasis more on controlling the wash and improving stick definition, making it slightly less crashable. If you like thin, dark-sounding cymbals but miss the clarity often associated with them, you're in luck, as Sabian clearly has figured out how to combine those qualities in the HHX Complex line." - Ryan Bennett
