Default Re: Crash Cymbals As Hi Hats

Using 16" crashes as hats - I liked them but there are some short comings - being thinner they don't get as much stick definition, they don't get as much volume and when playing the hi-hat pedal you don't get much of a foor 'chick'.

The obvious difference between a top hat anda crash is that the top hat is thicker... try hitting it like a crash and you'll see. The difference is probably less obvious with beginner cymbals.
