  • Great sound

    The first thing I noticed was the bright finish on them, very nice. They give a distinctive "chick" sound when used by pedal. I'm a 60's - 70's fan so the tone using sticks is reminiscent of jazz and rock drummers of this period. Very sturdy.

    These hats are the best I've ever heard, especially over recording. They're slightly on the brighter side for anyone that is interested in playing heavier stuff. Perfect for grooves and stylistic playing. An all around solid choice for playing in different genres.

    Eine strahlende Alternative zu meinen anderen Hi-Hats. Schneller spielbar als ein schwereres Constantinople - natürlich auch einfachere Klangfarben. Schöner Tschick!
