View Full Version : I think I made an oops!!!

OK, heres the deal.
I just blew big money on cymbals:
16" K con crash
18" K con crash
20" K con medium ride
13" K con hats
But i just got an offer of the same sizes and cymbals(ezcept for the hats) but in Sabian AAX's.
Did I make the right choice in my cymbal purchase or should work a deal with this guy for the Sabians. I've never played Sabians all that much so I'm not to sure
(I play jazz, light rock)[for the most part]

AAX's are better for metal and it's a loud and bright cymbal ...

Nope no oops here.
Ive heard nothing but good things about those K's. And max is right, The AAX was made for the hard hitting rock music...not really jazz.

Woah an oops? Absolutely not. That is the best of the best you got there. I would kill for those cymbals. Enjoy them, and even if you do not, you can still sell them for a great price and pretty much get anything you want, they're worth more then 98% of cymbals on the market currently.

K Cons and AAX are completely different cymbals, but the AAX ceris was not made for this purpose.
AAX cymbals were created for their consistency in louder AND softer playing environments. They give off a full range of tone at any volume which makes them suitable for the stage, the studio, for jazz and for heavy metal. They are an all round cymbal.

You did not make an oops IMO. It really matters what sound you want and like. The Cons as you know are great cymbals along with the AAX, If you are unhappy with the Cons, or prefer the AAX, im sure you could sell the Cons, and make an extra few bucks.

Yeah, man. Those K Cons are terrible. You should go ahead and get the AAXes, and if you want, I'll take those off your hands.
JUST KIDDING! No, those are excellent cymbals.
I'll still take them off your hands, if you're interested...
01-05-2007, 06:34 AM
nah, i would do the same as you... besides the aaxs is a better cymbal anyway... *strains to keep a straight face*

You can send me those K Cons; I will galdly take those terrible cymbals off your hands, thus relieving you of the work and embarassment having fine cymbals!

Thanks guys, and I am deffinately going to stay with the cons, I put them on my kit this morning and damn!!!!!!!!!I don't know what I was thinking. I just don't have much experiance with sabian.

pimp_, Sabian's lineup is easy to learn, because it's so much like Zildjians.
Zildjian A = Sabian AA
A Custom = AAX
K = HH
K Custom = HHX
While it's not that clear cut, it more than works as a general guideline to finding your way around all the models.

I thought A customs=vaults not AAX. I could be wrong.
01-06-2007, 06:33 AM
Well, Vaults are a fairly new line, and the AAXs have several different sub-lines within the overall brand.. but I'd say the AAX Studio models are closest to A Customs. Either way like I said, my guidelines aren't entirely clear cut, but rather meant as a foundation to build off of.
EDIT: and whatever the Vaults are, they sound SWEET!!

Sabian has so many subcategories that branch off from the main categories such as HH, HHX, AAX. To me Sabian has many more choices than Zildjian.
01-06-2007, 06:33 PM
I would think the AAX Studio would be a better choice than the Constantinople certainly more versatile here. But I guess that's if you want the American vs. Turkish sound. (A v. K)

There really isn't an oops(at least to me), you should play what you think is the best and not be defined by the price range(unless on a budget), but you obviously had money to spend on cymbals. just my .02, btw I think you made a good choice, at least to my ears.
