Default Re: Video of '70s Zildjian 15" Hi-Hats (light weight)

Thanks! I agree with you about how sensitive thinner hats are to foot pressure. For example, the heavier modern new beats I recently sold couldnt be easily choked with a heavy foot!

Ive realized the past year or so that I really like thin cymbals. Im not a basher, even when playing hard rock in my original band, so I never worry about breaking anything. I just like the way thinner cymbals are darker and more pleasing to my ears. And i LOVE how responsive they are to the stick.
