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. The 21" is the equivalent of a cymbal wipeout." - Adam Jones
"It is well known that the Holy China cymbals are very loud and snappy, and nothing has changed in that regard. The 21" station wagon is 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
"This 21" china is super loud. It has such quick response, not overly trashy, very bright and focused. I like that I can't hear it ringing minutes later, to me cymbals that go to long interfere with the other effects. You hit it...beat it to death...it sings...and it's out." - S. M.
"It struck me right away how dark this cymbal's tone is - and it's truly explosive and full sounding as well! The holes offer a quick decay, and I imagine the smaller sizes offer an even quicker decay alongside a brighter tone. I've only owned this one for about 4 months, but from what I can gather it's incredibly durable. I can be a heavy hitter, but you don't have to hit this cymbal very loud for it to cut - it frequently drowns out my other cymbals even when hitting it half as hard as the rest of my kit!" -Rasmith
