Matched grip is not surprising for Jack, but bright / piercing high hats are for sure. He was always the king of dark cymbals (and drums for that matter). I wonder if that is more a function of the recording device? Or has he changed his sound a bit?
I wonder if he's playing his 3 point ride here, the ride sounds a bit brighter than my 3 point ride does, but the stick sound seems to match quite well. If that's the result of the camera being a few feet away, that's interesting, because the dark fundamental tone of the 3 point ride is quite dominant at a close distance.
The audio is quite sharp and with more dominant highs than lows, perhaps that's why the hi-hats are so loud in this recording.
