I currently have a pair of 15" istanbul sigs. They are great for playing with a stick, but lack the control I had with a 14" pair. Understandable, but the weak chick is something that I can't seem to get over. When playing the ride, you can hardly hear it. I tried different tightness' with regards to the clamp, and not much changes. I was looking at the sultans. Since they're edge is layered, maybe they kep their dark wash, but when using the foot, retain some brightness? Could someone help me?Will I just have to get smaller hats to achieve this?
