When you think "hi-hat," you don't think "loud and ringing." In fact, it's usually the opposite: hi-hats are known for being fast and brief, with a full sound that gives them an important role to play despite their fleeting presence. So it's a handy coincidence that thin cymbals, as a whole, are generally thought of the same way. It makes them a pretty natural fit for hi-hats, which take great advantage of the fullness and quick attack of a lightweight design. The result is a range of thin hi-hat cymbals that can handle a huge variety of musical genres and playing styles, so no matter how you like your sound, there's a good chance you'll find a great fit among these thin hi-hats.

Naturally, it will take a little bit of thought to track down the perfect pair for your setup, and it starts with singling out the kind of sound you want. For instance, are you a fan of China cymbals and interested in getting similar tone from a hi-hat? If so, the Sabian 12 Inch HH Kang Chinese is worth looking into. Or maybe you'd like a well-rounded cymbal for rock and pop - in that case, how about the Zildjian A Custom Mastersound Hi-Hat Pair? And for those who follow the work of Johnny Rabb, the Meinl Generation X Safari Hi-Hat Effects Cymbals he designed are literally works of art.

Without a doubt, this selection of thin hi-hat cymbals has something to offer just about every drummer out there. So take a close look through all the options and ask yourself which ones would sound right with your own setup. The answer to that question just might lead you to the next additions for your cymbal collection, and you don't have to limit yourself to just one set either - nobody would blame you for stockpiling hi-hats to give yourself the luxury of choosing the best ones for each gig, or even each song!
