18" Crash Cymbal with 2" Perforated Holes
The HHX Evolution O-Zone is not a typical crash. The sound is a crude and very aggressive combination of a Thin Crash and Chinese − extremely raw, nasty and very biting. The attack has an immediate high followed by low, dark and dirty sustain. The 18” HHX Evolution O-Zone has eight 2” holes that serve to increase the nasty-factor. They also lighten the weight of the cymbal, so while size and volume remain the same, the response is actually much faster with less metal mass to move. The holes also limit the movement of vibrations to gate the sound, which increases the definition of each stroke.
Perforated with 2" holes, this innovative Crash cymbal delivers raw, dark and dirty bite. The SABIAN 18" HHX Evolution O-Zone Crash in a Killer O-Zone! Until HHX, it was impossible to project darkness. But the dark, simmering sound, agitated bite and "Tone Projection" design of HHX makes this series more effective than others. Other cymbals may generate darkness, but HHX stirs up more simmering heat, more musical dirt, more of what drummers want to hear â€“ and projects it. It gets you heard. And felt. HHX "Tone Projection" is an innovative design, created by the SABIAN Vault team.
