Re: Thick vs. Thin Hi-Hat Top
[quote=IDDrummer;1118676] In the example given by the OP ("Take the Money and Run" intro) the slightly open hat is struck with the stick and then closed. (In our backwoods vernacular, we just called it hissing the hat, lol!)
Ahh, I'm with you now. In that case rippled bottoms might be exactly the solution the OP is looking for. I remember a while back a member was talking about hi-hat "sip", which caused a lot of confusion. That said, there's something quite nice about seeing old terms being used, I remember talking to a drummer who still referred to the hi-hat as the "sock cymbal"...I vote we bring back "tub-drum".
Hope everyone is having a great start to their weekends,
