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.
A 26"thin on top of a 30"china. I would love to hear that. I can't imagine how that would sound.
I've never sold a cymbal, never will.Indeed. Will be 50 this year and it seems like I've only recently been able to actually identify what it is I like and want in drum and cymbal sounds. Have owned thousands of pieces of gear in the last 40+ years of drumming and I've let so many keepers go. Not this one.
After seeing the picture of your cymbals I did a count, and came up with 15. Counted both Hats as 2. The first thought I had was: I need more cymbals. What?!? Is something wrong with me? How many of you have done the same thing ?
