The Sabian HHX X-Plosion Crash 18" is an upper mid-cost crash cymbal. Sabian promotes the HHX X-Plosion Crash 18" as offering dark, simmering tone (which Sabian calls "Modern Dark"), with a versatile feel. With its jumbo-size hammering, the tone of this cymbal falls in the low medium range, which suggests that it is well suited to hard rock and metal settings. The Tone Projection design of the HHX X-Plosion Crash 18" makes it so that the tone is consistent, no matter what the volume. The pin-point lathing of this cymbal's construction increases sensitivity, for a greater dynamic range. The HHX X-Plosion Crash 18" is constructed of B20 bronze (about 20% tin and 80% copper, with hints of silver), which is an expected element for cymbals in this price range. The finish of this cymbal is what Sabian terms "brilliant", meaning it is particularly bright. The Sabian HHX X-Plosion Crash 18" has a medium thin design, so that it is relatively light without being too bright-sounding.
