Thanks for the advice! There's another local guy selling a pair of 14" Mehmet Nostalgia hats that are also pretty interesting-looking to me.I would say that 15” hats are typically mellower than their 13” counterparts. I haven’t played the 15” dry dark (I think they’re relatively new, and come in a brilliant finish) but the 13” have a pretty heavy bottom (most seem to be about 1:2 with like a 500ish top, 1000ish bottom). I feel like they could’ve benefited from a lighter bottom.
The 15” Xist dry dark brilliant hats are thinner proportionally and better matched (more like 800/1100 which are good weights for 15” imo), they sound pretty mellow and dark and have a nice sizzle.
If there’s a set local to you, they’re worth a shot for sure.
