13 inch high hats


I've auditioning new hi-hats to replace the two entry level sets I have now (a B8 and ZBT set). I prefer darker cymbals for the music I play, my ride is a Sabian HH classic, and my crash is a 16" Istanbul Agop Dark Crash. Because of my preference for Darker cymbals I didn't think I would like 13" hats (I though they would be higher pitched and brighter). I tried a couple of sets that I really like the Zildian K 13", and a Set of Istanbul Mel Lewis 13" hats. Both sets are a little on the pricey side but are just the sound I'm looking for. Anyone else out there use or prefer 13" hats.

I did go with the Zildian K 13" hats, they had the sound I was going for, and I've been very happy with my decision so far.

Re: 13 inch high hats


I currently use Sabian AA fusion hats in 13" size....i'm looking to change to 14's again tho anytime now, as soon as I find my 2002 sound edges.....I don't mind the 13's, they just don't have the presence that 14's do when we're playing live

Re: 13 inch high hats


Right now im using my standard S.P. 13 inches. I plan on getting Zilijian 13 inchers.
Shop around and check out Musicians Friend. Try looking for Zilijians. They have
very high quality. Good luck!
Peace, I E

Re: 13 inch high hats


I'm currently using Sabian 13" AAX Studio hats, they are a dryer sound with less volume (the Studio series is toned down a little--perfect for what I do with them) but a real nice "chick" sound and very tight/ They sound great open too--not as hi-pitched as I thought 13's would be...

Re: 13 inch high hats


Hello church drummer it's been a while since we chatted and I just wanted to say hi, and thanks for ur input on the Gretch kit, it's a gr8 sounding kit and records well also. I have been looking into the TD20 Roland kit and I am thoroughly impressed. However, the price needs to come down a bit. Anyhow, let me know what ur up to these days,,,C-YA!

Re: 13 inch high hats


Im thinking of buying 13" Paiste Hats $250 new (well a friends selling it to switch endorsements to Meinl). The thing I like about 13" hats are they can be fast.

Re: 13 inch high hats


HEY CHURCH DRUMMER I once wrote to you about 13" Zildjian K"s if anyone wants a good deal they should look for them on E-BAY I bought MINE THERE BRAND NEW for half price also bought an 18" NEW CHINA TRASH and saved $120.00 on that and a 16" Zildjian K CRASH NEW Saved over $100.00 on that, their's no trick to this you just have to take your time and look it may take a while but unless your in a hurry as you can tell you can save some money.
GOOD LUCK SLINGERLAND
