HHX cymbals, like their HH counterparts, are hand hammered by a Sabian cymbal maker in the factory. The HHX line has been modified from its HH roots by including Sabian's "Tone Projection" design - you'll notice much larger ridges and bumps on the bow of the cymbal. This design increases projection and 'spiciness', effectively creating a more modern version of the already dark HH sound. These cymbals work very well every musical style, putting the HHX series among the most popular cymbals on the market today.
Designed with Dave Weckl, HHX Evolution is undoubtedly one of the industry's most iconic and successful cymbal lines. Evolution cymbals speak with incredible clarity and brilliance, providing a sonic context of air and atmosphere. Their feel is remarkable. Buttery soft, they respond to the slightest touch, making them extremely easy to play, even at the lowest volumes. Within these sound parameters, the 19" HHX Evolution Crash is a warm, explosive model, delivering fast, shimmering response for increased projection and cut. It maintains the bite and penetration of high-end attack with the warmth of a darker undertone. But there is notable separation between the bright high end and the warm low end, for a high-fidelity sound that is both warm and cool. In fact, it is this mix that defines HHX Evolution: retaining the low end, brightening the highs, and increasing sensitivity so that the lightest touch of a stick sets it off. Evolution puts out its total sound at all times, even at very low levels. Hand crafted from Sabian B20 bronze, the most durable and musical metal, 21" HHX Evolution Ride is protected by a Sabian two-year warranty.
