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.
HHX are Sabian's modern take on their Hand Hammered (HH) cymbals; an innovative line that possesses traditional, dark tones as well as an explosive cut. Their signature 'Tone Projection' gives each cymbal HHX a brightness and aggressiveness that stands out above other hand hammered cymbals which typically possess only the dark tones and qualities. Until Sabian produced the HHX series, it was impossible to project 'darkness' in cymbals. This ability to have a dark, simmering sound with the addition of explosive projection and rapid decay is a result of 6 years of hard work from Sabian's Vault team.
Like all professional cymbal ranges from Sabian, HHX cymbals are made with high quality B20 bronze. Each cymbal is hammered extensively by hand, with many of the cymbals in this range left with a raw, unlathed bell. This gives the bell of the cymbal a particularly dark yet cutting sound, ideal for drummers in heavier rock music styles.
The HHX Legacy range are a series of cymbals developed with Dave Weckl; punchy, dark and complex cymbals designed to be capable of being played loud whilst always remaining musical.
