no Keropes or K Cons ?, most sound generic ,602's for me.I don't think they lack volume they lack unwarranted overtones. Keropes sound like 30th Anniverary's..or vice versa. Be good to see some old and new comparisons as well.

Hmmm... I watched a video recently where a recording tech said that when a guitarist complains about a drummer having "too much" high-hat, the drummer might need 15" hats because they're lower pitched and will give the guitar more room than 14" hats. Does that sound about right?
