Product Description

Play It by Stick or Hand

A unique cymbal concept - developed in collaboration with Dave Weckl - the 17” HHX Evolution Effeks Crash is a highly-responsive cymbal that can be played by stick or hand. It offers drummers and percussionists a new option for playing accents and effects. Extra-thin by design, according to Sabian Master Product Specialist Mark Love, “it’s easily activated with just a touch of a finger!” In addition, a finger-friendly down-turned edge eliminates the danger of cutting your hand, while enabling solid stick contact for quick response and full sound. The fully lathed bell offers yet another playing option. Available in Brilliant Finish, along with the Evolution Mini-Chinese and O-Zone Crash, it rounds out a trio of incredibly versatile effects cymbals in the HHX Evolution line.

Warm, Rich Tone for a Variety of Effeks

Fully hand-hammered, the extra-thin 17” HHX Evolution Effeks Crash delivers tonally warm, rich sound and a well-defined touch of high-end color to boost projection. Dave Weckl prefers his with a grouped trio of rivets, for a faster, fuller response and extra-long sustain. When struck, it responds dramatically, followed by a long, smooth decay curve. The non-riveted version is equally effective, though with more defined attack and an oriental tonal presence that makes it a useful option for a wide variety of musical styles. The HHX Evolution Effeks Crash is crafted from premium Sabian B20 Bronze. Available in Brilliant Finish, it’s quality protected with a Sabian 2-Year Warranty.

Sabian HHX – Modern Dark

Until HHX, dark cymbals simply did not cut. With HHX, Sabian changed all of that. Using an innovative combination of high-profile shape, large raw bell and jumbo sized hammering, they ensured that the dark, tonally complex sound of HHX cuts in any situation. Essentially, they took the warm, dark, complex tone of HH cymbals and made it cut for modern musical settings. While other cymbals may generate darkness, HHX stirs up more simmering heat, more musical dirt, more of what drummers want to hear – and projects it. It gets you heard. It’s just another innovative design feature, created by the Sabian Vault team.

Who Plays HHX?

Delivering simmering Modern Dark tone at all volumes, it’s little wonder HHX is played by top Sabian artists.

Hand-Crafted – Every Step of the Way

Like all Sabian B20 Cast Cymbals, the HHX Evolution Effeks Crash begins its 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 cymbal. But first, they must go on a journey that will take them through the processes of 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 made HHX an award-winning sensation when it burst upon the scene in 2001.
