The 22" AAX Heavy Ride from SABIAN introduces a whole new palette of sound to the AAX line. A larger, raw bell equals better crash-ability, typically not the case with a heavy ride. A whole new style of hammering ? much more visible on the surface of the cymbal due to the larger, rounder peen ? makes for a ride cymbal that trends thinner than a traditional heavy ride, with added darkness and complexity. At the same time, more highs are introduced into the sound, resulting in a wider band of frequency. For drummers, that means brighter highs and more complex lows. SABIAN has always pushed the boundaries of innovation, using the latest manufacturing technology to answer new trends in music and sound. AAX Heavy Rides are no exception, answering the call for crash-able, complex Rides with added versatility.
