Default Re: Thick vs. Thin Hi-Hat Top

I agree, thinner hat tops don't cut as much. They sound darker and have a softer stick feel but in a band situation they can get a bit lost.

At least I'm finding that with my 16" hats (2 crashes).

I just googled paragon hats 'cos I'd never seen/heard them. The 'brilliant' ones look and sound just like my ufip supernova hats... ufip says on the site they're quieter (aside from other properties) because they're made from sheet metal, perhaps paragons are similar.
