Love my 13” K cons from the early 2000s.
They will work well with your current Paiste cymbals . That is the thing with Paiste - their various models fit well together . I currently have a set consisting of Traditonal, 602 and Masters and it works well .I was thinking about these ones to go with my few Paiste, Master Dark Crisp ride 22, Signature Dark Energy 15" and 19" crash and Sound Factory Frankenstein logo 16" Crash. So, do you think these hats will pair well with what I already have? I plan to add a signature full crash 18" with them too, opinion?
Very good hi-hat! Do you have the regular hats or the 802 Plus? The Plus hats, though they’re supposed to be an improvement, are not as good sounding as the originals. My personal opinion, of course. The plus treatment makes the cymbals more stiff and feel less professional to me. I agree that you can get a Copeland sound with these. For those who may not know, the 802s were once Paiste’s top line of their budget cymbals.13 in Paiste 802 hi hats. They get me to the classic Stewart Copeland sound without breaking my wallet.
Love em. Sound amazing!
