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 Ride
A smaller, raw bell equals increased crash-ability. A whole new style of 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 ride cymbal.
At the same time, more highs are introduced into the sound, resulting in a wider band of frequency.
"Compared with the 21" HHX Thin ride, the AAX had a significantly more open, sparkling sound that sat nicely atop the mix, while the HHX was a bit more muted and deeper in pitch.
Even though I usually tend to prefer darker, drier-sounding rides, I ended up favoring the lighter and livelier tone of the AAX. Although it had a higher pitch, it was more dynamically expressive, and it occupied a nice spot in the upper frequencies that had me exploring more delicate patterns just as
much as louder shoulder and bell attacks." - Michael Dawson
