Byzance vintage pure or vintage sand hats?

I'm looking into getting one of these sets of hats. I have watched videos on both, but would like some of your personal input. I play in a rock cover band and an original pop rock band.

Neither would be my first choice for a pop/rock situation, but of these two, I vote for the Pure. I had the Sand hats for a while, and they sound good but pretty unique - not the ideal HH for all around use IMHO (unless you are Benny Greb). The Pure hats have more cut and projection.
In the Meinl line-up, try the Byzance Medium or the Pure Alloy (maybe even in 15").
