A thin but extremely robust model, the 16" AAX V-Crash is designed to deliver powerful, punchy front-end attack along with bright, glassy sounds and full sustain for increased effectiveness. The V-Crash also benefits from a power-increasing bell, balanced bell-to-bow responses, and pinpoint lathing to emphasize focused high-end cut. The SABIAN AAX series delivers consistently bright, crisp, clear and cutting responses – AAX is the ultimate Modern Bright sound!
The bright sound of this cymbal--powered by silver in its B20 Bronze--slices through the music around it.
All About the Vault Collection
Vault is a collection of cymbals and sounds. Named after The Vault, the center of Sabian design, this collection is about very different concepts, looks, sounds. Each piece is unique, with many created in collaboration with major names including Bozzio, Calhoun, and Portnoy... while Paragon is a powerful yet dynamic range designed with legendary Rush drummer Neil Peart. Vault and Paragon: Creative designs for creative players
Unlike other series, where there are variations on a particular type of sound--like Vintage Bright or Modern Dark--the Vault Collection is a wide range of sounds while Paragon delivers dynamically big responses. So let your imagination run wild.
