Sabian HHX Cymbals
HHX is designed with a modern style in mind, based on the Sabian “Tone Projection” design. The Tone Projector is a different color than the rest of the cymbal, giving the cymbal an interesting and unique appearance, differentiating the HHX from other Sabian cymbals. Nicknamed “Modern Dark,” HHX cymbals are hammered by hand, giving them a raw look despite their smooth sound.
Daniel Erlandsson of Arch Enemy, has been known to play Sabian HHX cymbals, favoriting the Evoution Ozone Crash, the Power Hats, Stage Crash, Splash and Chinese cymbals. Carlton “Santa” Davis is also an avid user of HHX cymbals, and has often performed with reggae musicians like Ziggy Marley, who he is the official drummer for, and Peter Tosh, as well as with Willie Nelson, Pink and Isaac Hayes.
With HHX cymbals and a little bit of practice, you can provide the dark and funky beats you've envied in your heroes.
