Sabian alike Paiste Sig. Full Crash


Senior Member
I like the sound of the Paiste Sig. Full Crash, and I hear Danny Carey using it alot and I love the sound. But Sabians are alot cheaper around me, so I was wondering if there is a similar sounding Sabian thanks Brad

Both the AAXplosions and Vaults will give you the brilliant cut and body of a Sig, but they will never sound the same. The metal is completely different.

That being said, I've had Vaults and AAXplosions in 18, 19, and 20 and they are awesome instruments.

It will be difficult to get a B20 metal based cymbal to sound like a B8 one. I think the x-plosion or the evolution will be your closest match. I have Paiste 2002's and Sabian HHX. The HHX Evolution has a nice crisp sound like the Paiste but with a buttery, dark overtones. They have become my favorite line by far!
