        Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Hats:

        I've been a drummer for almost fifteen years, needless to say I have played a lot of different hi-hats in my time and for the price range you really can't beat the price of these. They record well, sound great live in small venues, overall good quality good sound. Would I take these over a higher end hi-hat pair? The answer is no, but if your on a budget like I am, these are the best hats to go with in this 100-150 range.

          I have spent thousands on cymbals including most major brands. I bought a full set of these on a lark. I don't notice a big difference between these and others. The price speaks for themselves. You wont be settling.

                These are great for the jammer that wants a crisp hat sound and has a budget. These hats have a sizzle that stands out nicely in unison with snare, bass, and guitar. Buy them, they rock.

                Really good hi hats. At this price you wont find anything better. B8's are good, but paiste sounds brighter.

                Solid hi hats

                Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Hats:

                I have played these hats for about a week, and I've given that a thorough inspection. They are bright, clean, present in the mix. Keep in mind these are what you might call "budget" cymbals. ZBT's are priced a little higher than these guys. You'd pay more for half a hi hat than you would for these hats, but anyone looking for hats in this range that will not get drowned out and still sound musical, give these a try. I did.

                Continue to suprise me!

                Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Hats:

                First off I rated features 5 because, they are simple hi-hat cymbals. I played drums since I was 10, but put them down and sold all my stuff about 5 years ago. Recently I have gotten back into it (I could kick myself for selling my old gear) and am slowing rebuilding (and with 2 kids I am now on a budget). I have always love Paiste cymbals and (I used to play on 2002 and Rudes)so I looked to them for my starting cymbal pack. After some research I settled on the PST5 Rock set (16" Crash, 18" Ride and 14" Hi-Hats). I have been playing on them for several weeks now, and while the crash and ride are acceptable, I hi-hats continue to suprise me it how good they sound. They have a crisp sound, but in a medium ring. I recently upgraded my hi-hats stand to a Gibraltar w/ liquid drive, and holy cow! It brought these hats to life! I am totally amazed at how darn good they sound. If you are on a budget, I think you will be very happy with what you get for the money.

                they sound GREAT!

                Comments about Paiste PST 5 Rock Hats:

                The PST-5 rock hats sound killer, especially for the money. They are loud with a nice, sharp chick. The stick noise articulates beautifully, and, of course, the CuSn8 alloy makes them look beautiful as well as sound beautiful. Much tighter and heavier sound than the PST-3 hats. I had to wait over 2 months for mine, but they're WORTH IT!!!!
