The 20" AAX Heavy Ride from SABIAN introduces a whole new palette of sound to the AAX line. A larger, raw bell equals better crash-ability, typically not the case with a heavy ride. A whole new style of hammering - much more visible on the surface of the cymbal due to the larger, rounder peen - makes for a ride cymbal that trends thinner than a traditional heavy ride, with added darkness and complexity. At the same time, more highs are introduced into the sound, resulting in a wider band of frequency. For drummers, that means brighter highs and more complex lows. SABIAN has always pushed the boundaries of innovation, using the latest manufacturing technology to answer new trends in music and sound. AAX Heavy Rides are no exception, answering the call for crash-able, complex Rides with added versatility.

Sabian has made the best heavy ride on the market. This thing is perfectly balanced. It is just a hair thinner than a traditional heavy weight ride. Which means that it still opens up, but here’s the best part; it’s only when you want it to. Sometimes when you play medium weight rides the wash gets over bearing and out of control. Not with this ride. It still maintains 3 distinct playing sounds with a great wash/crash when played at the edge of the bow, articulate sticking on the body of the bow and lastly an unbelievable unlathed bell. Seriously for a 20” cymbal this thing packs a punch. So much fun to play. Great for rock/punk/metal of course, but honestly it has a beautiful tone and can accommodate any playing style. Highly recommended. Not coming off my set anytime soon.
