Re: Crash Cymbals As Hi Hats
I use a 14" Zildjian "New Alloy" crash as a hi-hat top. It's just a matter of what you like, but crashes generally go thinner than hats. Especially on bottom hats, which are often thicker than the usual cymbal to enhance foot chick, closed stick response, etc. The New Alloy crash doesn't really sound good as a crash anyways, so...
