Paiste hi hats

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Paiste Signature Dark Crisp Hi-Hats:

I have had these for about 9 years. I have played them very hard, packed and unpacked them, and you can't hurt them. Pretty pricey but, with Paiste you only need to buy them once. In all these years, I still love the sound of these hi hats.

crispy and dry

By lifelong drummer

from Longview WA

Comments about Paiste Signature Dark Crisp Hi-Hats:

I've owned mine for a while and im still surprized every time i play them. They are without equal in terms of sheer articulation, and expressive potential. Though be warned, they are very dry and must be PLAYED well. Not the high hats for someone looking for an easy bright sound. These are med dark, dry, sizzly, and fairly quiet hats. Great cymbals!

Just cant go wrong

Comments about Paiste Signature Dark Crisp Hi-Hats:

I've used these hats for years now in many different playing situations and I've ALWAYS been able to coax out the sound i need. Whether im in need of a huge resonant sound to keep time in a funeral doom band, or a quick, brash, thrashing sound to compliment my blast beats. I've even played sets with a jazz band using these. The pricetags a little hefty but if you can scrape up the cheddar its well worth it. Can't break em, can't get a bad sound out of em, can't play without em!

      I use this hi-hat as my ex -hat replacing some old "new beats". The crispness comes through well in my headphones and sounds great with my sound edge hit hats. I love the combo for ostinatos. Nice balance.

      Comments about Paiste Signature Dark Crisp Hi-Hats:

      It has been about three years since I go my set. I am very hard on my cymbals. I literally beat the hell out of them and the best part about them is that they still sound fantastic. Paiste cymbals are the best. If your thinking about getting them .....don't, don't think, just get them!

      i play a set of these, theyre my friends and i have to tell you, they are really nice. I didnt prefer the sound at first but i was into zildjians and it just didnt have the sound i was used to, now looking back i prefer the paistes over a, k, and z customs. Nice hight hat, i have a it an 8 in value becuase its expensive for a lot people.

      Comments about Paiste Signature Dark Crisp Hi-Hats:

      These are awesome! I've been playing for over six years and used Zildjian and Sabian, but never had a pair of hats like this. They are dry and not over powering. The sound is very clean and crisp. The price is a bit trendy, but when you play and hear this hat you will be totaly sold.

      The Greatest Musical Instrument of All Time.

      By MidnightPlatinum78

      from Mankato, MN

      Comments about Paiste Signature Dark Crisp Hi-Hats:

      To even try to describe how my soul almost melted out of my body when I heard Josh Freese play these is beyond my descriptive capabilities on their best day. The sophisticated jazz player or alternative metal star MUST have these. These blow any Zildjian and all Sabian cymbals out of the realm of truly artistic instruments. The clarity these have and flawless sound for recording applications boggles the mind. Their cousin, the Signature Sound Edge High-hats don't even come close and those musically embarrass all the competition. I'm saving and saving for my own... as for you: to buy or not to buy? I know I?d regret it for the rest of my life if I didn?t?
