Product Description

Killer Hats at Any Volume

Sabian 14" AAX Stage Hats are highly responsive, with bright, clean sounds that cut clearly and articulately at any volume level. While they deliver consistently bright, crisp, clear and cutting responses – there is no sacrifice at lower volume levels. Play them lightly or play them loudly, these hats get you heard onstage and in the studio. In fact, these may be the most versatile set of hats you can buy. The AAX pinpoint lathing increases their sensitivity and gives them a wide dynamic range at al volume levels. The high-profile shape raises their pitch and boosts brightness. And the high-pressure AAX hammering provides the instant, bright response.

AAX Is Amazing

Perfect for tight, fast, drum ’n’ bass work that requires clarity of stick articulation and open and closed “barks” and “pea-soups,” the 14” AAX Stage Hats deliver tons of focus. Pedal “chick” is bright and penetrating. And stick definition is outstanding. Throw subtle accents into your playing, and they never get lost – even off the stage. With their high-profile raw bell, pinpoint lathing and Sabian-exclusive sustain-enhancing process, AAX Stage Hats are perfect for any application.

Sabian AAX – Modern Bright

AAX changed everything. Before AAX, most cymbals were manufactured using processes that had been around for centuries. AAX was the first B20 Bronze cymbals designed and manufactured using completely modern lathing and hammering techniques. The result? Increased brightness, cut and musicality – for the widest dynamic range ever achieved. And suddenly, the bright, explosive tone of AA cymbals was available even at low volume. AAX uses hand-guided, high-pressure hammering for instant, bright responses. Pinpoint lathing is used to achieve increased sensitivity and wide dynamic range – even at low volume. And the high profile shape delivers cutting, high-pitched tone. In the studio or on stage, in every style of music, only AAX delivers such consistently bright, crisp, clear, and cutting responses. AAX is the ultimate Modern Bright sound!

Who Plays AAX?

A perennial best-selling Sabian series, AAX is played by top Sabian artists.

Hand-Crafted – Every Step of the Way

Like all Sabian B20 Cast Cymbals, AAX Stage Hats begin their life in the Foundry, where a centuries-old family process is used to create the most musical and durable of all cymbal alloys. Inside the Foundry, Sabian metallurgists combine carefully measured amounts of Copper, Tin and Silver, heat it to 2100 degrees Fahrenheit, and pour it into casts. At this stage, it’s hard to believe these castings will eventually become a set of killer Hats. But first, they must go on a journey through Multi-rolling for intensity, Hammering for tone, Lathing for enhanced response and projection, and a final Aging process in the legendary Sabian Vault for optimum sound. In a sense, it’s a journey that’s only complete when you play the cymbal of your choice - an evolution from idea to reality. It is this process – innovation blended with traditional cymbal-making – that allowed AAX to make history as the first modern cymbal concept in B20 bronze.

I hope this review doesn't sound like a wine tasting: nice bouquet, excellent body, magnificent finish, and I'm not hip to all the words used to describe a Hi Hat's sound...

So here goes:
These high hat cymbals have major Kung fu skills like Jackie Chan. When they're closed tight, it cuts through the band's noise like Optimus Prime's sword. It sounds killer when you use your foot to step on the pedal. The loosely closed position sounds like sizzling bacon--tasty and sexy. Lastly, the hit-it-while-it's-open-then-close-it sounds so good it makes unicorns cry (I've got a bottle of Unicorn tears that I use to kill vampires and zombies). Oh yeah, it has a fantastic"chick" whatever that means... Did I mention they smell good too?

I know this is a corny review, but go to your nearest music store and bang on these hi hats. Then buy them from amazon because you won't find a better price. If you do find a better price, don't tell me about it because I would feel bummed.

I'm SUPER PLEASED with this product!
Good Luck and practice your rudiments!

I recently purchased these hats after three years of drumming. Wanting to get serious about my kit I was looking for something with a pro level sound. Simply put compared to these everything else sounds like hitting a trash can. These hats have an extremely loud sound if they are open or closed, they just cut right through the air.

The pitch is higher than most hats which is a personal preference of mine, they have a very bright sound. The sticks bounce off them
Easily, they have a beautiful finish, and of course they're sabian so they're well made. Can't recommend these enough to serious drummers, if you can afford the price, if not I recommend the Xs20 hats, close to the same sound and half the price.

Sound a lot like Zildjian New Beats that came out in the 1980s.
Medium weight cymbals. Sound cuts through and sits well inside the music. Not loud and high pitched like a lot of newer stage style hihats.
