Looks like a fun set to play on. Nice!
Now - replace your hi-hats and ride with something nicer. What have you been looking at?

Looks impressive!
Those black suede heads are quite fancy, too. Are they comparable to white coated emperors, or do they have a different sound as well?

They have a real nice fat sound that are real punchy, perfect for how I want them, I find the white coats ring out too long for how I like

I've been wanting a Zildjian Z3 21'' Mega Bell Ride and iv only just started thinking about hi-hats. I play mostly metal but I play everything else as well and I want something that will have a real tight pronounced sound when closed, but a real nice slosh as-well. I'm thinking maybe some 14'' K Custom Light Hi-Hats? Have you got any suggestions?

They're named K Light hats, not Custom. Otherwise - nice choice! :)
I like the 15". Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins and many other rockers use them.

Its much cleaner overall, if I could suggest some hats for you, try and find some 14" Z custom Mastersound hats, perfect for every sort of music
