i have 14" paiste 2002 soundedge hats. i love mine, they destroy my old zbts. they took some getting used to because theyre lighter but the waved bottom hat allows a crisper sound when closed tight and the sound is crisp and clean when open too. id like to find a 14" 2002 heavy top hat because i used to play my zbts inverted (due to a cracked top hat) and i thought it sounded good.

z customs are ok for heavy stuff but they have no dynamics and i havent played any ive liked (except k/z hats). look at a custom or avedis mastersounds for good all around zildjian hats...a lot of people also like the new beats but i think theyre very dull cymbals and i dont enjoy playing them. sabian aa heavy hats are also a rock music favorite, and aax stage hats sound great too, as well as anything in the hh line (but those come at a price). of course, anything paiste signature or 2002 will also satisfy.

you have to play around and find what you like.
