Would AAX stage hi hats be to bright for big band jazz or blues? Are they pretty versatile for almost any style?
I owned a used pair of these, got them for only $60. They were VERY heavy, very bright. The top was 1450 g, bottom 1550 g. I sold them soon after buying because they were just not very versatile to my ears - thick, loud - mostly a pure rock hihat. I'm sure they could be played in big band, but not suitable.
I would suggest an older LIGHTER pair of New Beats or AA's for the genres you mention.
I think they're fine hats with typical weights–they may be slightly shimmering for jazz but it shouldn't be a real issue, especially if you are mostly playing with your foot.
Personally I'd choose something darker, but these should be fine for whatever. I have a pair of Meinl Dark Spectrum hats that are similar weight (~1000g top, ~1500g bottom) and I'd use them for near any genre.
