I recently purchased the 16" to pair up with my older 18" AA Medium Thin. These are fantastic cymbals capable of producing a range of sounds from darker and lower-pitched when played at low volumes to brighter and higher-pitched when played more loudly. They blend into the mix and also record extremely well, with no ungainly ringing or overtones, and both sizes have a rich decay. I love them, and I was able to find the 16" here on Amazon at a ridiculously low sale price.

As the AA line is Sabian's oldest, I feel like it is sometimes undersold as a secondary option to their more popular (and more expensive) HHX line (which are fantastic in their own right). But I feel like AA has something special to offer players who are looking for complex sounds at a more affordable price point. In my opinion they outplay Zildjian A's (their more or less direct market competitor), and the larger AA's compete with K's in their richness of sound. Don't be fooled by their simple categorization as "vintage bright." They have a wide range of sounds to offer.
