Robert Zildjian formed Sabian in 1981 after a falling out with his brother Armand Zildjian. Using years of experience he had developed from his past career Sabian were always going to go on to become one the leading cymbal manufacturers in the world. These days they can list a whole host of big name artists who play their cymbals. Perhaps most notably the likes of Jojo Mayer and Chad Smith.

Sabian first introduced the AA range alongside the HH range in 1982, the names standing for Automatic Anvil and Hand Hammered respectively. As the names suggest, the production processes are very different for each range giving them distinctively different sounds. Like most high end cymbals available from Sabian, AA cymbals are made from B20 Bronze. They have a bright and pronounced sound, and perform very well in high energy situations. Simply put, AA cymbals sound great when played loud!

Compared the AAX range, AA cymbals have more of a vintage bright sound, suiting more of a classic rock or pop drumming style. And in comparison to HH and HHX cymbals, Sabian AA cymbals have a more focused and bright sound. They are often compared to Ziljdian A (Avedis) cymbals.

One of the most popular cymbals in this range is Chad Smith's signature 19" AA Holy China.
