Hi Drummers :)

I'm looking around for some new Hi-Hats, and I was thinking about some 15" New Beat Hi-Hats. First of all, I think my choice for the New Beats is good, because they're extremely versatile, and that's what I need them to be.

My question in the 15". Anybody have any experience with 15" cymbals? I like my hi-hats to have lots of "Pssssssssssshhhhhhhh." Like that half-open wash that lasts forever. I use this wash as a solid foundation in most of the music I play. And with the extra inch, they'll be louder, which is always a plus.

Anyway, anybody have any experience? Are they hard to control? Are they too loud? Are they perfect in every way? Any feedback appreciated.

instead of the newbeats, i like the sweet hats. theyre only avaliable in 15 and have a differnt sound than the over-recorded newbeats. there dark, sloshy and sizzle amazingly. there stick definition is amazing, but there not that loud compared with my 15 paiste 2002's

I have a set of 15" Paiste 2002 Sound Edge. They are very musical. Great wash and chick sound. I also love my Rude 13" sound edge as well.

I have a set of 15" New Beats, I play them with the bottom on top and top on the bottom. It gives me a bit more clarity due to the heavier bottom.

14" A Custom Z Combo Hi Hats. I love the way they take the Z Dyno beat n A Custom sounds together. Buyin thm soon:D took me a while to find somewhere to buy them though. Thought bout Z 14" Mastersound, 14" A Custom Mastersound or Z 13" or 14" Dyno beats as well. But in the end, I liked the combo of the two.

ive seen 16" hi hats from the 60s, they had holes cut in the bottom hat, i think to let alot of air out.

15" ones are good, proper old school, Bonham and Mitch Mitchell used them

mmmmm
