SABIAN has introduced X-Celerator Hats, a pairing of 14" hi-hat cymbals designed to deliver super-quick and crisp responses via a special 'air wave' bottom cymbal. Available in AAX and PRO series versions, X-Celerator hats eliminate sound-muting air-lock through this wave-edged bottom cymbal. This accelerates and purifies response rates so X-Celerator Hats are faster, offer increased precision, and project with greater penetrating power.
Commented SABIAN master product specialist Mark Love: "The super-crisp sound of X-Celerator Hats is what makes these hi-hats so effective for virtually any style of music, from funk to rock and everything between. The 'air wave' bottom plays an anti-airlock role, expelling air to ensure clean and crisp contact between the top and bottom cymbals. This ensures a very definite 'chick' sound when played by pedal and a precise and bright sound when played by stick. These hi-hats can sound tighter, brighter and more precise than others when played closed, or bigger and more explosive when played open. Even slightly parted the response becomes full, almost 'crashy'. The 'air wave' bottom makes all the difference."
AAX X-Celerator Hats are crafted from SABIAN's pure B20 bronze and are available in Natural or Brilliant Finish. PRO X-Celerator Hats are precision formed from B8 'uni-rolled' bronze, and are available exclusively in Brilliant Finish. X-Celerator Hats feature a medium top and heavy bottom, with mid-sized bells. Each pair is 'Sonically Matched' in the SABIAN Vault, for optimum performance compatibility. All AA and PRO cymbals are quality protected by SABIAN's One-Year Warranty.
