Would you say thinner hats aren't as loud when played with the foot pedal? (foot chick)
Yeah, I'd definitely say that. I'd say thinner hats aren't as loud all around. To me, they have a softer tone, but also feel better under the stick. More sensitive or something.

I'm figuring out pretty quickly that in general, I like thinner hats over the heavier hats like New Beats and stuff. I would like to try the newly redesigned New Beats, though.

I also like 15" hats better for the lower pitch and more pleasing tone (to my ears.)
