- Absolutely fantastic sounding and incredibly versatile pair of Sabian AAX 14” STAGE Hihats in great shape.
- These are basically cleaner sounding, slightly darker, more articulate New Beats with a Brilliant finish …..and not $410.
- Classic New Beat philosophy weights at 968 and 1375 grams. Very clean and articulate but they do offer a slightly darker SHIMMERING tone - actually darker than most Zildjian New Beats.
- And being the Brilliant AAX they are Sabian’s answer to the Zildjian A Custom.
- Fantastic chick tone when played with your foot.
- As the name suggests, they cut well from stage, but 968 grams is actually Medium Thin, not overly hulking - it’s considerably thinner than many 1080 gram New Beats on the market.
- Where these hihats really shine, surprisingly, is on lower to medium volume settings. They are much more controlled and FOCUSED than many other 14s”. They’re clean sounding and don’t muddy up your tone when closed. And they sound very tight at lower volumes.
- Killer for recording.
- Open them wide for a raucous slosh.
- No issues. Nice patina built up.
- Surprisingly versatile. Literally darker sounding more articulate New Beats without the pricier tag.
