Special Edition AX Cymbals
The new Special Edition AX cymbals feature a bright, powerful sound that is recommended for contemporary rock, pop, Latin, and R&B. Made from handcrafted, hand-hammered B20 bronze, the brighter tone of the new AX models offers a contrast to the warmer and darker standard Special Edition models. Both series are available in three ride/crash/hi-hat pre-packs, and an assortment of crash, splash, China, and stackers can be purchased separately.
