Default Re: Sabian Cymbal Vote 2014 - Live!

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the Freqs in general- the attack of the closed hats does come through but there's not a lot of sound when they're open.

I'm surprised the Sick Hats sound as alright as they do, though I still like the HHX Compression Hats that never won. The AAX Groove Ride seems pretty nice too, though with that, the X-Plosion Ride, and the Bash Ride, that crash-ride type seems a little saturated.

I'll get to hear them in person at PASIC, but from the videos it seems a bit lackluster in competition compared to last year. Ah well.
