For lots of situations, thinner cymbals really make a big difference. Light, fast and responsive, they're quick to attack and decay, which is exactly the kind of quality many drummers look for in hi-hats. With that said, maybe you'd like to get those advantages without completely giving up the volume and sustain of a heavier cymbal? In that case, you're on the right track by coming to this selection of medium-thin hi-hat cymbals. True, they're far from the kings of power and sustain - but they're one of the best ways to get a taste of those traits while still enjoying the perks that come with a lighter and thinner set of cymbals. Just think of them as jacks of all trades, but a bit on the lighter side!

Every set of medium thin hi-hat cymbals comes with its own unique quirks, but that doesn't mean you need to go way off the deep end with anything too crazy. If you like your hi-hats fairly traditional, check out the Paiste Giant Beat Hi-Hats. On the other hand, maybe an unusual set is actually what you're after. No problem: the Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Medium Thin Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair has you covered if you'd like something old-school, dark and dry. Or, for a hi-hat unhindered by air resistance for the trashiest metal-ready sound, how about the Sabian AA Sick Hats or the Paiste PST X Swiss Hi-Hats?

Like all things percussion, the choice is yours to make, and that's really the beauty here. There's no such thing as a hi-hat that's perfect for everybody, and the best fit for you depends on how and what you play (along with a dash of personal preference). So keep that in mind while you browse the lineup of medium-thin hi-hat cymbals: it's not necessarily about what other drummers like, it's about what will look and sound right with your own personal drum set.
