Sabian AAX 18 inch Omni Jojo Mayer Signature Cymbal

Sabian AAX 18 inch Omni Jojo Mayer Signature Cymbal


Diversity of a crash and solid defined ride cymbal in one

OMNI is a revolutionary new cymbal. Developed with seminal drummer Jojo Mayer, the vision for OMNI was to create a cymbal with outstanding sonic contrast both when played on its own or with other cymbals.

Medium Bell, Extra Thin Edge

Review is from

Jojo Mayer needs little by way of introduction to drummers. Sabian has harnessed his brilliance and originality to develop two innovative new cymbals.

The AAX OMNI cymbals are officially unclassified, but are a modern reworking of the multi-purpose crash/ride.

The starting point for the OMNI was Sabian's existing El Sabor Picante hand crash, which features a thin edge that opens easily. Jojo asked Sabian to attempt to incorporate a similar technique into a new model for stick (as opposed to hand) playing.

Regular crash/rides tend to be a compromise between two different types of cymbal. Are they a light ride that opens to crash, but has an indistinct stick sound as a result? Or are they a heavy crash that can be ridden, and takes an age to decay?

"Lather Allie Cougle - who has recently lathed his millionth cymbal - claims that he'd rather go through another divorce than create another OMNI!"

The OMNI's design attempts to isolate the areas of the cymbal used for each discipline, so a medium-thick, unlathed central portion gives way to a thin, lathed edge.

Just two diameters are available - 18" and 22". Sabian experimented with alternative diameters during the R&D process, but chose to put only this pair into production
