    Default Which Crash to Buy?

    I am planning to buy a Sabian 18 inch or 19 inch thin crash next week. I am considering the AA Raw Bell Crash, the AA Thin Crash, the AAX Thin Crash, and the AAX X-plosion Fast Crash. If you have an opinion or experience with any of these, please comment below. Have an excellent 2021. Peace and goodwill.

    Why not try a Sabian 18” extra thin crash. I love mine. It has a beautiful mellow wash to it.

    A description I’ve found:

    Combining a bright character, precise machine hammering and the thinnest weight of any cymbal in the series, the Sabian 18" AA Extra Thin Crash strikes a perfect balance between delicate and pronounced. Immensely responsive due to the cymbal's weight and able to add tasteful layers of bright wash or a staccato crash with quick decay, this cymbal has natural applications everywhere from fusion jazz to garage rock.

    should have taken advantage of the AAX Concept crash when it was on sale for black friday. What a steal!

    I like the AAX Thin crash and the AAX X-plosion is a killer cymbal

    I ended up buying two crashes from My Cymbal.com. I ordered a 17 inch and an 18 inch AAX Studio Crashes, which are thin and open easily. Thanks for the responses. Peace and goodwill.
