Yes they do, but the problem with hi-hats is that they're already in this frequency range where nothing else is, so even thinner New Beats tend to stick out in your overall drum mix. I've heard many a beginning drummer just obliterate his own drum sound by concentrating too much on his hi-hats, when in reality, he could really go light on the hats and produce more bass drum and snare drum instead.
