Sabian introduces its revolutionary 122OMX HHX Omni ride from the Modern Dark HHX series! The jumbo HHX hammering delivers a Ride cymbal that’s dry, articulate and always controlled, while the medium-sized bell lowers the pitch and provides even more Ride area. The extra-thin edge results in an open and extremely musical Crash.
OMNI is the world’s first cymbal to truly deliver a Crash and a Ride in a single model. Developed with seminal drummer Jojo Mayer, the vision for OMNI was to create a cymbal with outstanding sonic contrast both when played on its own or with other cymbals.
Sabian HHX Omni 19 Inch Cymbal
When SABIAN introduced the AAX Omni in 2010, never had so much sonic contrast and versatility existed in just one cymbal. With the launch of a new HHX Omni, Jojo Mayer and SABIAN have taken those same sonic properties to a whole new level. While both the AAX and HHX deliver outstanding contrast and versatility, the new dark Omni provides more nuanced tone on the ride surface.
This means the stick sound stays a safe distance from the body, refusing to get swallowed up no matter how loudly it’s played. It also adds the dimension of playing with the shoulder, which not only has a wonderful texture, but also excites more of the cymbal’s body without activating the crash. The 19” HHX Omni delivers the ultimate in sonic contrast and versatility, both on its own or with other cymbals. It’s a go-anywhere-play-anywhere cymbal, and you can play any gig with the HHX Omni.
