      Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

      Undoubtedly top of the line hi-hats... what else would you expect? I have the 14" hats, and they have a good cheek sound; not too 'wooshy'; clear, bright, and very responsive. They're great for any style of music...from country to metal. They are a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for: excellent hats that will last you decades. If you can't afford these, try the AAX hats, but these are well worth it.

      Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

      Having been out of drumming for 20 years, I wasn't sure where to begin. I tried out a few hats but was leaning toward these almost immediately. But what size? I considered 13" but since I always played 14" I thought I better stay with that size. I use hi hat chokes often and was concerned that 13" may be more higher pitched than I wanted. I was unable to try 13" in person so I went with the 14" and absolutely love them. Then I fell in love with the Evolution crashes, and splashes and rides...oh my. A lot has changed in 20 years!

      Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

      I fell in love with the HHX Evolutions the first time I heard them. They had exactly the sound I was looking for. They aren't the cheapest you'll find, but well worth the investment. I expect to get a lot of years of use out of these. They are a HUGE step up from the B8's I had before.

      Evolution: Truly an Evolution in Cymbal Making

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

      This hi hat is the cleanest, fattest, dark sounding and bright all at the same time, that I have ever heard. I had gone through about ten hi hats trying to find one that I liked. I almost bought the HHX Groove hats, but just didnt get the fat 'chick' out of them that I wanted. I went into a shop and they told me that if I liked the sound of the HHX series, that the evolutions would blow me away. Well a year later, it seems they were right. I play pretty much every style of music (except rap) and they blend when they should, and cut when it should. GREAT JOB SABIAN!!!!

      By Furge

      from Norman, OK

      Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

      When I bought these, I'd been listening a lot to the "In Memphis" album by Dusty Springfield and was really in love with Gene Chrisman's cymbal sound. These certainly have the fatness and dark tone of vintage studio hats, but also the simmer and sustain of more modern, computer-designed cymbals. I use them on everything I play, from post-punk to bop, and they sound great at all times and dynamics. You might never need another pair.

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

        If you're having a really hard time finding the right set of hi hats, like I was, and have tried several expensive sets , like I did, this set will probably end your journey. They sound perfect and do all the things you hope hats will do. Sound good closed, project live, and the open sound is the most musical I have heard. Better stick feel than Ks. They are a little on the heavy side, but they don't play heavy on the foot. I'd recommend these to almost anyone.

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

        I purchased these hats brand new off ebay from a store in the southeast. I got the 14" for $200 less than what they are listed in most stores and websites. I was getting ready to shell out the full amount until I found a killer deal. Let me tell you, I play all types of music and these are the only hats I have used for all my shows and gigs. I have used various high hats from all makers and I must say that these are some of the best. The price is pretty steep but they will sound like $450 hats.

        Well Worth It...

        By Zach Evans

        from Cincinnati Oh

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

        I had B8's before there and this is definitely a big step up. These are really have that good "chick" sound that a good pair of hats needs. But the bottom hat isn't ridged along the edge, which makes all the difference. But nonetheless, you can't go wrong with these. Also look at the Zildjian Mastersounds for a jazzier tone.

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

        I just bought the Sabian HHX Evolution 14" Hi-Hats today and absolutely love them. While at first glance they may look spending they are definitely worth the purchase. I compared them to many other hats from Sabian as well as Zildjian and they simply rose to the top. I would say this is a perfect set for someone who is looking for a darker sound in their hats.

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

        These are the nicest sounding, most versatile hi-hats on the market. I have the 14" hats and honestly, I will never buy any other hi-hats for as long as I live. I like my hats to not have such a high-pitced, tinny sound when played open and this hi-hat is perfect for my taste. Nice and crisp, not so bright but still projects. Honestly, do yourself a favor and buy these things right now, they are completely worth the price.

        Comments about Sabian HHX Evolution Series Hi Hats:

        I bought these mainly for aux hats or main hats for jazz, but they might be promoted to my main hats. I use them as a "ride" for death metal and hardcore. Really these are better than anything Zildjian makes. That includes the whole K line.
