      I recently got a new pair of these 15" hats. I have always played 14" New Beats, only, up until now. When I first set these up, I had a peculiar unease about the sound, but they quickly grew on me, and within seconds, I was really digging the new sound. They have a very cripy sound, overall, and lots of cut. The chick sound is quite sharp and not so airy or whispy. The open sound is quite sizzly. They are quite quick for 15" hats. Depending on the type of music you play, I might not recommend these as the most versatile, all-round pair for everything, but if you are going for an agressive sound with lots of attack, you might love these above all others. Highly recommended !

      These are without a doubt, the best high-hat cymbals I've "heard." BUT I have been through two sets since buying my first set not quite a year ago. I don't know if it's the empty space created by the waves in the edge or what, but I've had to go back to my color-sounds because they keep cracking top & bottom cymbal. I guess if you have an endorsement, they're great, because they do sound sweet. I just can't afford to replace any more.

        Comments about Paiste 2002 Sound Edge Hi-Hats:

        I have used these Hi-Hats since 1975 and simply put there is no better sound out there! The current set I have I purchased new in 1980. Not a ding, dent or scratch on them. Someone recently asked me if they were new...LOL I have several other hats from various manufacturers but none sound this clean and precise. Great for studio or live applications. I have used them In both applications. Studio engineers love the precise focus of them and playing live they are not overbearing at all and yet cut right trough all the other instruments whether they are miked or not. I have used them for classic/hard rock to pop applications. Well worth the money kids!

            These hi hats never sound rinky-dink, at any volume, open or closed. I have a pair of Zjildjian Mastersound 14 hats that I have loved, but I must admit that these Paistes sound good with every stroke in a way that the Mastersounds do not. If you're looking for a more defined sound, a richer, clearer and more responsive, these hats will take you to that level.

              Comments about Paiste 2002 Sound Edge Hi-Hats:

              There is a reason John Bonham used these cymbals. They cut through everything and sound clear and crisp. Paiste cymbals are the best. I record frequently and am always very happy with the results of Paiste signature crashes and these hi-hats. They are expensive but if you want the best sound possible, it is worth it.

                  I have played zildjians for a long time , being the factory is next town over. However the sound I love I could never get. I stopped and looked at the cymbals my fav drummers use. All!! of them use paiste!! niko, alex van halen, stewert copland, mullen jr, Bonham! moon, So I went to my drum shop with all my zildjians, and turned them in and bought paiste! Over a year ago, still awesome as ever! the se hi hats, can not say enough! I don't know why other guys chip or crack? I abuse the things and nothing just great awesome sound! all the 2002 line is awesome! the only thing that isn't paiste in my set is a sabian 10" chopper. the rest is all 2002 line! best cymbals I ever had, and will only use!

                  These hats are exquisite. I had a set a long time ago and I should never have let them go.
                  I have a second set and I love them. They cut through everthing, they are responsive, and depending on a person's attack I can get plenty of sound from these lovely hats.

                  Just received my 15" 2002 Sound edge hi-hats today. Couldn't get them out of the box fast enough. First off the finish on the 2002 series cymbals is gleaming. I bought these to replace my old 2002 Heavy Rock Hi-hats that I had tons of miles on. (still in good shape). All I can say is awesome and exactly what I wanted and expected from Paiste

                  Great sound! Just great quality hats. The wavy bottom really brings out the sizzle in these big boys. Started with Paiste and never looked back since. Don't know how you can break multiple pairs of hats, could be bad luck, or maybe Technique?;)My Paistes have never let me down. Fixin to get me a pair of 15" Soundedge here @ Musicians Friend, really dig the service!
