The Chad Smith signature AA Holy China won multiple awards when launched in 2010. A monster of loudness and cut, it satisfied a need with drummers looking for a unique and explosive China cymbal.
In 2017, the AA Mini Holy China compresses all the volume, trash and cut of the Holy China into a mini-China format. With an exaggerated high profile, rows of small holes and a raw bell, the “Mini Holy” cuts more than any other cymbal its size.
Designed for boosted trash and reduced tonal character, the Mini Holy China’s cutting power comes not from higher decibels, but rather from perceived loudness, much like a highly compressed music track. This innovative SABIAN design results in a level of high-end white noise that is typically found only in much larger cymbals − ideal for drummers who want huge cut in a mini-China splash format.
SABIAN is committed to creating the widest, most innovative range of sounds on the planet, giving drummers more choice in creating their sound. Available in 8”, 10” and 12” sizes in natural or brilliant finish, the AA Mini Holy China is the latest effects cymbal to deliver on that promise.
