Re: Paiste 14" 2002 SE hats vs 15" Giant Beats
The 14" 2oo2 SE's do have a lot of highs, but they also have a lot of lows and mids too. I am amazed at just how broad the frequencies are. You probably would like the 15" SE's better because of the lower overall pitch. But I see that only the 14" is available for that great price. I personally like the overall sound of the 14" SE's better than the 15"s, but I seem to be in the minority there.
I never played a Giant Beat hi-hat, but I've heard from other drummers that they have much less volume than the 2oo2s.
