What's your impression of the new Sabian AAX models?

I tried a thin and medium ride, along with the 16 and 18 inch medium crashes. They seemed to be good general-purpose cymbals. But nothing that blew me away... certainly not the really restrained sort of tones from my old AAX studio crash and hats, and not the bright, lush sounds of the AAXplosion fast crashes I have.

I did try some 14" medium hats which seemed to have more "shimmer" (in a good way).

To me they're a little too dark for what I associate with AAX cymbals.

The crashes sound good to me on a few videos I've seen. I look forward to trying them out in person.
