Crisp and LOUD

By weevilboy

Comments about Sabian Hand Hammered Bright Hi-Hats Brilliant:

These bright hats are crisp and great sounding, but too loud for my tastes. I paired the bright top with a Sabian HH dark bottom and that combo is the best I've ever played on.

Great, underrated hats



Comments about Sabian Hand Hammered Bright Hi-Hats Brilliant:

These hi hats are one of a kind and here's why. Contrary to what cymbal makers want the consumer market to believe, on the whole, B20 bronze used in hi hats is best suited in a jazz, non-rock setting. The 80-20 percent copper/tin ratio drastically reduces overall cymbal brightness and if you are a gigging drummer on the road playing on loud stages in loud clubs, B20 bronze is best reserved for your crashes and ride. I mention this because as a player of the now discontinued Paiste 14 inch Sound Formula Heavys (B15 bronze) I've tried every B20 hi hat model under the sun only to find that in order to find that "cut", I had to go so thick that the cymbals would not excite and respond as quickly. Compound that with the fact that B20 is much stiffer than B8/15 and you have your self manhole covers worthy of destroying a bushel of sticks every gig. Do I love the warmth? Absolutely but let's face it folks, I want my inricate hi hat work not only to be heard but pronounced. Sabain dials up these bad boys and they are BRIGHT. But oh no, all of my favorite drummers use "dark" cymbals!!! Well that is a load of you know what. Carter Beauford used the z/k combo (z on top of k) for years just to get that projection. Problem is, the Z dyno top hat is 5lbs! All of the Paiste heavy models do not exceed 1200 grams on top and therefore are buttery smooth and just as loud if not louder. Don't know how Sabian managed to pull this one off but my 13 inch brights are in fact "bright" but yet still retain that warmth that only 20 percent tin can provide. Honestly, no, they are not quite as nice as my SF's but close...very close. My top is 940 grams and still projects with excellent clarity which is something my Sabian EVo's do not (they are my light gig hats). I have to laugh at drummers playing New Beats and K's on the rock stage because unless you are overhead micing, your sticking is getting lost in the mush...sorry. Had to break the news to a few friends on this one. Anyway, aside from a very slight overtone, these are some of the best hats, feel and sound-wise I've come across. B8 is too bright, B20 needs to much metal and mass to cut and B15 rules the hi hat stage. That said, Sabian has done an AMAZING job bridging that gap. Had they marketed this cymbal under ANY other name than "bright hats", they would be a best seller. BTW, my crashes, rides and most of my chinas are B20 bronze. Hats are playing together, riding against one another and less tin is your friend in these situations. I wish another company would replicate the B15 bronze Paiste uses because it is the best of both worlds for hi hats.

These Are SWEET

Comments about Sabian Hand Hammered Bright Hi-Hats Brilliant:

I just got these hi hats yesterday and they sound amazing. I tried it a store with out a set and they were the right sound I was looking for, but I wasnt sure if they would fit with the rest of my set sound. But once I got home n threw um on my set it blew me away. These things compliment the rest of my set perfectly, I play almost everything and the sound these give works with every style of music. I wish they were a little less money, but they are definitely worth it.
