AAX is a middle price range series but it can be sorted as the best intermediate cymbals. Many professionals use this series both for studio and live playing. Although it is cheaper than HHX or Artisan, the quality doesn’t decrease that much. This series is oriented to modern, bright sound, and it is the most modern series by Sabian.
You will not find a jazz drummer using the AAX. Their usage is mainly in Pop, Rock, Metal R&B.
Drummers who use the AAX mainly come from popular music like Tony Royster or, on the other hand, metal music like Mike Portnoy.
This series is the most popular among young rock and metal drummers who require a brighter, modern sound, and they already learned a few tricks and broke a few lower-level cymbals.
AAX is also the cymbals series, which has the best value for the many ratio. It does belong to a middle category, but as I said, the quality does not decrease that much while the price does.
