I have a set of 15s as well - 1033/1190. I’m not a 15” hi hat guy, but these are the only exception. Very crisp and articulate. However, my 14s have a special mojo. They are the only cymbals I own (and I have many) that couldn’t be replaced.More seriously Tom, they are extremely “polite”, not quite what you would expect...
They are fairly low volume, extremely responsive for 15s, and just have a sublime open hat slosh, no brashness to them at all. They’re not that thin, around 1100 g each. But they don’t sound or play clunky. I feel like I get out of them what I always have hoped to get out of super thin old As, but without that hollowness or mushiness one does get with exceptionally thin hi hats.
Honestly when Matt first started selling these in my head I was like “great, he finally figured out the marketing game” (don’t tell him I said that) but there really is something different about these.
