The latest additions to Sabian's line-up of HHX cymbals are 17" and 19" HHXplosion crashes. These larger models, with solid, heavily hammered raw bells and deeply dimpled surfaces, deliver big, loud, and explosive responses loaded with warm, simmering tone. Like all HHX models, HHXplosion crashes benefit from 'Tone Projection', an innovative Sabian design that projects the 'biting' explosiveness of these cymbals through any style of music.
"HHXplosion Crashes," commented Sabian artist relations manager Bobby Boos, "especially in these larger, odd-sized models, have big, simmering sounds, lots of punch, plus the volume and tonal 'bite' to be loud and aggressive. They also benefit from the HHX 'Tone Projection' feature, which increases their effectiveness at all volumes -- low to high -- so players can lay back or dig in, but consistently get that dirty, explosive response that makes HHXplosion one of the most requested cymbals ever with members of the Sabian Artist Program." Handcrafted from Sabian B20 Bronze, HHXplosion crashes feature narrow pinpoint lathing across their top and bottom surfaces, and a solid, heavily hammered raw bell. Available in a choice of Natural or Brilliant Finish, the HHXplosion Crash is also available in 14, 15, 16, and 18-inch sizes. Like all HHX cymbals this model is quality-protected by a special Sabian Two-Year Warranty. (North America only. Subject to local regulations in other areas)
