Re: Sound Formula/Signature question
Generally the Dark Crisps have a lighter top and heavier bottom than the Sound Formulas. So the weight difference between the top and bottom is greater with the Dark Crisps. The SF hihats have a pretty good weight difference, but more like a Zildjian NewBeat pair.
The DC hihats are definitely darker and crisper. I prefer the DC hihats - the shuup is nice and deep, but the overall sound isn't too dark or mushy. Also I like the response of the lighter top and the Sig line always was a little more refined than the Sound Formulas.
