I have a new set of A Customs. THey have a great lower cutting sound and a bright chrisp chick when played with the pedal. I love them and get lots of compliments.

2002 soundedge's 14 or 15 inch. Or Zildjian new beats 14 inch. The soundedge have a wavy-bottom so that there is no open-close muting and the new beats have holes in the bottom cymbal that do the same thing. Both have a really nice strong "chick" sound and are a crisp as you can get.

if you want a good crips sound. Zildjian Z or A custom. i personaly like Paiste PST3 and 2002sound edge. the PST3, are very crips. well spoken and controlable when open. whenclosed they h ave a nice cutting/crips chick, but not too loud with a slight hiss.

I like the Zildjian Z customs, but keep in mind that they're quite a bit louder than other hi-hats. Maybe the K/Z combo would be better.

You might check out the AA Med 14 hats, They have the bright chick, plus full wash when open, I really dig there sounds. Its a matter of taste, but these are just what you said you wanted.

Check them out, I tried many to get the sound i wanted and the AA med sabain fit my bill.
You can find them for 239, sam ash, and online order also. About the cheapest youll find on them.

Good luck,
