The 17" version of Sabian's new for 2018 FRX series is the middle in terms of size from crash range and delivers a dark, dry and very tasty tone that verges on the lower pitch register.
It's important to note that Sabian's FRX cymbal range are most certainly not volume reducing cymbals but rather as the name suggests, frequency reducing. It features strategically placed sound holes to remove some of the more cutting frequencies, reduce the attack and cut down the length of decay - without removing the desired tone of a pro-level cymbal.
This makes the cymbal sound a lot less overwhelming in any mix suited for environments where traditional cymbals deliver too much attack and is a first choice for recording purposes.
