The Sabian AAX Splash Cymbal is high pitched and quick. An exceptional accent cymbal that cuts through very well.
Much more than a cymbal manufacturing company, SABIAN is a collection of dedicated and very talented individuals whose only focus is to create the finest cymbals and percussion instruments possible. Our ultimate goal is to help drummers and percussionists express themselves the way they want to be heard. How do we do it? By combining traditional values with modern vision and creative innovation to develop a full range of cymbals and sounds for players of all styles.
Rise and Shine
SABIAN was founded in late 1981, on the banks of the St. John River in the tiny village of Meductic, New Brunswick. Here in this quiet peaceful hamlet in eastern Canada, we produce instruments played by some of the world's most famous players:
Neil Peart, Jack DeJohnette, Mike Wengren, Steve Ferrone, Tyler Stewart, Carmine Appice, Chad Smith, John Blackwell, Rod Morgenstein, Rocky Gray, Phil Collins Vinnie Paul, Will Calhoun, Billy Cobham, Bernard Purdie, Evelyn Glennie, Zoro, and Dave Weckl.
Playing the very same instruments as the garage band down the street, these artists have come to rely on the quality, durability and sound selection available within our various series. Drummers aren't the only ones choosing SABIAN. Percussionists in many major orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, the Montreal Symphony and the Philadelphia Orchestra, as well as major marching bands around the world, are also playing SABIAN.
What is it about a SABIAN cymbal?
When leading artisans from the ancient city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople) moved to the New World, they came to SABIAN, bringing their ancient skills with them. Today SABIAN is the only major company producing cymbals hand hammered in the ancient Turkish style. But we don't stop there. At SABIAN, we take special care to ensure every cymbal in our seven different series and collection of Signature models is skillfully crafted to meet superior standards.
We craft our cymbals from the purest, most durable bronze alloys. They are available in a wide range of models and sounds that speak to tradition and innovation, with a variety of series and models for every style of music.
