I have some from the late 70s, the hollow logo era. I have used them in every conceivable circumstance both live & in studio and I have never heard them too loud and have never had any complaints.
Yes, there IS something to that: where many are testifying that modern NB models are thicker and louder. Anyone in the last 20 years, who has read threads raving about NBs who has then went out & bought a new pair has probably been a bit let down and confused.
NBs from the 70s really are something special.

I love my new beat hi-hats, I think mine are actualy getting quieter unfortunately not cutting enough in a rock situation,I've had them from new round about 1980. They have a small hairline crack at the edge 1/4"or 1/2" or something, and they are 'tarnished' a bit prob from being right on top of an stage ice blower.

Couple of suggestions first +1000 on the crash over your NB top. Do you have a shop nearby where you could bring your hats and test drive something before you spend hard earned cash? Are they only too loud through your mics? I recently watched a video on drumset micing and when the guy " adjusted " the mics I was shocked at how small the adjustments were. Just possibly it's the mic placement and not your hats ? Also what weights are your New Beats? Singles are available on line if you search.
