X-Plosion Design Gets Faster With New, Thinner Model
MEDUCTIC, Canada (Jan. 12, 2009) – Responding to requests from
R&B, funk, jazz, pop and fusion drummers for a faster variation of its
popular X-Plosion Crash, SABIAN has introduced the AAX X-Plosion Fast Crash.
Thinner, more responsive and with a glassier, higher pitch ensuring extremely
quick response and decay, this thin model – available in 14-inch, 15-inch, 16-inch,
17-inch, 18-inch and 19-inch sizes – delivers a super-fast response. The bright,
shimmering sound is so pure, clean and concentrated that it blows through
everything going on around it. This cymbal will be on display at the 2009
NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif., January 15 – 18, 2009 at the SABIAN booth,
"The AAX X-Plosion Fast
Crash is great for players wanting a big, explosive response with a faster,
brighter sound," said SABIAN Master Product Specialist Mark Love. "Its AAX
‘Dynamic Focus’ design means it responds accurately at all volume levels, so it’s
fast and glassy, as well as is extremely versatile with bright, explosive
attack, penetrating definition and total presence.
Tony Royster Jr. (Jay-Z),
Jim Riley (Rascal Flatts), Cora Coleman-Dunham (Prince) and Todd Sucherman (Styx, Brian Wilson) are among early adopters of the AAX
X-Plosion Fast Crash cymbals.
