I recently picked up an 18" AAX China and it just didn't hit like i wanted... so I wrote my Sabian rep and ordered this 19" Xtreme AAX and it's exactly what I wanted!
Here is a quick sound demo for you!
What do you think and what do you prefer?!
This is my beast of a ride cymbal. SABIAN calls it the "override" and it's a Limited Edition signature series for Jimmy Degrasso!
This cymbal weighs in at 10.5lbs!! It features a Raw 8" Power Bell!
Intense hammering from both HH and HHX this thing cuts through any mix!
Check this monster out!

After several weeks of shopping, I got some cymbals to go with my Tama Imperial Star shell pack. MANY thanks to the people here and all the discussions I read on different cymbal tones, timbres, brilliance, and many other descriptors I am still learning!
I'm near Denver, so ended up at the Lodo...
Hello guys, new member here, excuse my stupidity:
I'd like to seek some opinions on the old discontinued xs20 line from sabian. As far as i know, it originally came out in 2003 with the weird lathing pattern and natural finish before the brilliant and normally spaced models in 2012 (correct me...

Hey Guys !!!!
Just a question for you , Ive got some planet z's that ive just cleaned up with my new Zildjian cymbal cleaner and it worked a treat but my cymbals are old (Maybe 2 years) and there was some finger marks on them actually there were loads...
Ok, I'm kind of a beginner, and I was wondering which cymbals are better, Sabian or Zildjian? I've heard Sabians are cheaper with a better warranty but Zildjians are better quality and better looking. Is all this true, and is there more? I'm on a budget but don't want to sacrifice quality for...
Here's my problem
I want to buy a drumrack but all the time I think it's a waste of money because I could buy 2 cymbals and the stands for them at the same price.
If I buy the rack I don;t have the money to buy the cymbals.
Otherwise I don't have a rack and I'm buying stands so I will not buy a...

cymbals (Plantet Z's.) I didn't care at the time i didn't know what was good or not
so they served me well but it came...
In my quest for better cymbals, I have stumbled upon the K Mastersounds.
I personally love them. I love the sound they make, the characteristic Mastersound chick to 'em, and the fact that I know that K's will have a pretty sweet resale value.
I'm just concerned about whether or not they would...
Just got them today and I can definitely say, Wow! What a great deal! 15" and 17" Mist X crashes and 14" Mist X hats for $260 and all my trashed beginner cymbals. They sound good and I'll definitely be ordering from Saluda again. I just hope it won't take 3 weeks next time. Haha. I might be...
So after years of playing with awful cymbals that are finally now starting to crack, I'm in the market for a new set. I must say that I'm extremely leery of cheaper cymbals as I have broken 2 14" Zildjian ZBTs and a 16" ZBT. I don't abuse my cymbals by any means, just hit reasonably...
