Medium Thin Hi-Hat Cymbals
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.
