I've only had a drumset for a year and a half, but I've had these cymbals for a year and they are still in perfect shape. The only real complaint is if you want to play quite it can sound chunky. Open, they sound really amazing. I'd recommend them to really anyone.

Overall, these are hats are a very good buy. they sound realy nice, if on the bright side, and they're very durable. my only complaint is that they can be a little quiet at times, but that probably just comes from me buying the 13's. I would definately buy these again.
They're 13" hi-hats, so not many feature to speak of. They have a decent bell, sound great closed and pretty decent open.
The quality is exactly as I expected from them. No cracks, no key holes out of box. I hit a little on the hard side most of the time, and so far they hold up fine.
I got the 13"s, so i only paid like... 76$ for them and so far it's an excellent value. These were the first hi-hats I purchased for myself (not the first set I played) and I plan on keeping them for a long time.

Good budget hats

Comments about Paiste PST 3 Hi-Hats:

You won't find Jo Jo Mayer playing these but for what you pay,....well I've heard a lot worse. They have a pretty decent chic...they are not bad closed, maybe a little clangy but what the heck...they can be very loud if you need volume. I have them as practice hats and IMO it was a very good deal . You could gig with these if you had to and no one would know the difference. Very good metal or rock hats...maybe not Jazz.

13 inch

Comments about Paiste PST 3 Hi-Hats:

I gotta say i expected these to suck but these are pretty good for the unbelievable price. They sound great closed developing a nice chick. the open sounds decent too. Overall this is a good cymbal to buy if your a budgeter but if you have some extra cash, buy something nicer like xs20s or zhts. Btw, don't buy the pst 14 crash.

13 inch for two years

Comments about Paiste PST 3 Hi-Hats:

These hats are ok. I got them in the two packs with the 18 crash/ride. The click can be chunky which, for me at least, doesn't sound too great. Open they sound pretty cool though. Recording, not bad, again the chunk doesn't provide too much clarity, but hey.However, when I saw that alone these hats only costed about $75, I was in shock. These are good hats for $75! Beginners, here ya go. But if you're more intermediate or have a little more cash, I say go for something a little more quality

Good But...

By TayerPlayer

See all my reviews

Comments about Paiste PST 3 Hi-Hats:

I bought the 14" set and they sound pretty good open, I will admit. But, closes kind of bums me out, not digging the sound you get from this closed or half close, but if you leave them fully open then they are awesome sounding. As far as durability, they are reliable, i've had them for about 3 months or so and not even a scratch, literally, and i hit my cymbals hard. So, low on cash or a beginner who wants to use a little more than just crappy stock cymbals, these are your best bet.

Comments about Paiste PST 3 Hi-Hats:

Alrighty then I get the first review. :D Ok, so, these hi hats are a nice pair. Buddy got a set with crap cymbals, we bought these and the PST 3 Crash 16" and they are awesome. I'm surprised cuz...they're lower priced cymbals, but i tend to smack 'em kinda hard at times, but they hold up, no dents or dings or anything. Excellent for beginner or drummers on a budget. Not top of the line but not bottom quality. I recommend these big time.

Great for recording

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Paiste PST 3 Hi-Hats:

These are pretty good hats. They have a very clean, tight sound, and mix very well in recording situations. They aren't busting your eardrums loud which is a nice if you value your hearing and the peace of your neighbors.

Comments about Paiste PST 3 Hi-Hats:

I had to buy some new high hats, since I cracked my zildjians. I looked for the cheapest pair, so I looked at Paiste since I have a ride and crash that are paiste, and still have not cracked. These paiste high hats are very good for the price. I would definitely suggest these if you?re short on cash. Good closed and open sound. I gave it a high rating, because of the quality for the price.

Very Good Hats

By zkalaber

See all my reviews

Comments about Paiste PST 3 Hi-Hats:

I really think that these hats are definitly the best for the cash. They sound very good closed or washy, and make a good sound open too. I definitly prefer them to zildjian planet z or some other crap hats. I wouldnt record with these thought because they dont hold up amazingly in a loud rock setting.
