Sabian has introduced a new addition to it’s AAX line. According to Harmony-Central.com, these cymbals were made in response to a demand from gospel and R&B players. After listening to the samples on Sabian’s website, it looks like this would right up those player’s alley.
Most gospel drummer I hear are going for a fast attack and little decay. Typically you can get this with small cymbals (14″, 15″ etc) and while this new line includes those sizes, in big gospel or R&B bans, you’re looking for something that can really cut through. You just don’t get that with most 14″ or 15″ cymbals. This could be a hit for Sabian. AAX is a nice line.
