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.
AAX Thin Crash
- A small raw bell delivers faster response.
- A whole new style of AAX hammering − much more visible on the surface of the cymbal due to the larger, rounder peen − makes for a thinner, more complex and slightly darker crash.
- At the same time, more highs are introduced into the sound, resulting in a wider band of frequency.
"When I imagine the quintessential crash cymbal sound for contemporary applications, it's often one that's explosive, glassy, smooth, and quick to decay. In other words, I'm thinking of the tones of the AAX Thin crashes. These models feature smaller, raw bells and the new large, round peen hammering. The hammering makes for a slightly darker timbre without sacrificing clarity and sheen in the high end. The 20" Thin crash was a bit slower to respond and had a deeper, wave-like roar. It didn't have as much high-end shimmer or glassiness as the smaller models, but it doubled very nicely as a thin crash-ride when played on the bell or bow. The 20" offers a bit more depth, volume, and drama." - Michael Dawson
"It rings really long and has a nice low sound." - Shopper
