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.
"Explosive attack and instant decay. Not trashy at all. Cuts through but isn't excessively loud. It's the perfect china for rock/alternative." - War Eagle
"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. The 17" model is quicker and sharper-sounding." - Adam Jones
"It is well known that the Holy China cymbals are very loud and snappy, and nothing has changed in that regard, and the 17" model can also keep up very well in terms of aggressiveness. The pitches between the three AA models are very well graded, and in this respect they fit together perfectly both as a duo and in a trio. The 17" is the right combination for the club gig. 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. The response of the 17" is of course extremely fast and very quick." - Ralf Mikolajczak
