New "Old Stock" . 
A very balanced, smooth, yet strong hi-fi hi-hat. The Paiste Crystal Hi-Hats deliver a full, fizzy, and sweet sound character with a fairly wide range and clean mix. It's very tight and responsive, with a giving feel. High pitched and sizzling open sound. Sharp, cutting chick sound with a soft and velvety touch. The Crystal Hats are for all purpose playing, mainly studio applications and other situations where a high quality controlled sound is required.
