The Sabian AAX 20 inch Medium Ride Cymbal delivers versatile tone thanks to its new hammering process which extends the high-end sparkle and adds a hint of darkness to the lows.

Crashable Medium Ride

Unveiled at NAMM 2019 as part of the AAX series overhaul, this 20 inch Medium Ride adds a whole new palette of sound to the AAX range.

Removing some of the less popular cymbals, maintaining the Aero, Freq, X-Plosion and Omni lines and introducing a series of new models, the transformed AAX cymbal range provides drummer with a much more streamlined choice of sounds.

All the newly added cymbals feature a completely new hammering process which works to deliver a wider range of frequency and therefore a much more versatile depth of tone.

Sabian 22012XC AAX 20 inch Medium Ride Cymbal Key Features:

  • Smaller Raw Bell for Improved Crash Ability
  • New AAX Hammering Process
  • Thinner Feel
  • Increased Highs
  • Complex Darkness
  • Wider Frequency Range

Superb Crash Ability

The Sabian 20 inch Medium Ride features a smaller raw bell which works to keep the weight of the ride to a minimum allowing it to open up quickly to deliver big bursts of accenting crash tone.

Providing a great way to achieve a versatile range of tone from a reduced set up, this Sabian ride allows you play articulate ride patterns and crashing accents from one cymbal.

Despite being a medium weight cymbal, this Sabian AAX ride utilises a brand-new hammering process to achieve a much thinner feel.

It is this thinner feel combined with the smaller bell that allows this ride to respond so well as a crash.

From crisp stick articulation on the shoulder, to full on crash wash at the edge, plus strong bell accents, this ride delivers a versatile range of sounds ideal for a variety of musical styles.

Increased Highs, Complex Dark Lows

As with all of the new cymbals in the Sabian AAX series, this 20 inch Medium Ride features a completely new hammering process.

Utilising a larger, rounder peen this new hammering style not only creates a much more visibly hammer cymbal aesthetic it also serves to produce a whole new sound.

The hammering process makes the cymbal react like a thinner cymbal, expands the top end range and adds complexity to the lows.

The result is a ride cymbal with an increased frequency response filled with extra highs and a hint of added darkness.

Providing a great breadth of sound, this Sabian ride is the ideal choice for a wide range of music styles and settings.


Maintaining their aim to develop new and innovative sounds, Sabian have used the latest manufacturing technologies to create their new AAX cymbals.

The incorporation of a new hammering process serves to provide a ride cymbal with increased highs and slightly darker, complex lows.

The thinner feel and smaller raw bell combine to enable superb crash ability to ensure this ride cymbal delivers a versatile range of sounds to fulfil the most diverse needs.
