    MMMmm Sabian! I have recently started mixing in Sabians with my Zildjians.
    the two brands really compliment each other nicely!

    I own XS2014" hats, 10" splash. AAX ozone crash, and my favorite crash in the whole world an 18" HH medium crash (circa 1980ish)

    I'd like to get a set of AXcelerator 14" hats and a 20" Vault ride..YUMMY!

    In my experience most of the AAX rides are washy and ringy and have weak bells. Imo the one great ride from AAX is the Raw Bell Dry ride. Also, look at the other RBDR's. The HH one is especially great. For even more ping look at the "rock" and "metal" rides, which are the heaviest. Also the Paragon ride.

    Hey guys I'm probably getting a 17" AAXplosion crash this month. Then I'm gonna replace my B8 ride and hats at the end of the summer, as well as get an 18" Xplosion.

    I started on B8 moved to XS20 and settled on mid 80s AA crashes, and fairly new AAX Stage Hats. My ride is not Sabian as I could not find a used one that matched up to the Zildjian I ended up getting (mid 80s also).

    Sabians were the first cymbals i owned. I started off on the sabien pro sonx which i think are ( or were as they are no longer made) the best beggner level cymbals around. I now play AAX. Sabian are buy far my favourite brand and i hope i shall stay with them forever.

    I have to agree with yohin that the RBDRs are really nice rides, and that everything else in the AAX line was washier than I would like. I started with the HH RBDR but thought it was too dry - it wouldn't wash at all. So I tried the AA RBDR and that one opened up much better and is the one I'm currently using.

    Seems like Sabian doesn't make a ride larger than 20" that has a weight somewhere in the medium range. Maybe I'm just missing it...

    But you can special order any Sabian cymbal in any size at no extra cost. That is, you could order a 24" AA Medium Ride for example, and it would cost the same as any other 24" AA ride. The only downside is it might take a bit longer to get the cymbal.

    Really? I didn't know that. Thanks for the tip, I'll have to keep that in mind...

    Ah man! You need some more experience! There are many AAX Rides that have great focus and strong bells. AAX Metal definitely fit this description.
    Imo the one great ride from AAX is the Raw Bell Dry ride.
    This is still a very new ride for most people, but I agree with you, it is super sweet.

    I resorted to designing my own ride when I went to the factory, but it ended up being based on an AA RBDR eventually anyway.

    That, the Evolution and the Groove ride are super sweet also.

    me and my friend went and looked at rides at the local music stores this weekend and the best sounding one we found was a sabian AA raw dry bell ride. i loved the way it sounded, even more than those pricey zildjans. and that was actuallu the ride that my friend has. the next best one we found was a Hand-Hammered sabian. thats all it said on it but it sounded great too. im pretty sure im going with the sabian RDBR

    I love sabian cymbals. My favorites that I have are my 21 inch AA rock ride and 16 inch medium-thin xs20 crash. I also have an xs20 splash that i got in a rebate offer(for free its not too bad) and a b8 thin crash that is my primary. It sounds similar to an APX for about 1\3 the price.
