I heard about them.
My main concern is that the 16" size might cause some positioning problems, and that they might weigh down the hats somewhat...
But then again, the former problem can be remedied with the Gibraltar Ultra Adjust hat stand.
i've set up my 18" crashes as hihats just for fun....they might actually work for a very heavy rock situation. i think that teh 16" hats will be like using 2 crashes since they're light hats...deep and very dry is my guess.
Not too bad. Nice closed stick sound and a nice chick when using your foot. I think that they are just the slightest bit too heavy in that when struck when open, either a little or a lot, was very harsh and clangy. I think they would work best in amplified jazz settings. If each one was about 100 grams lighter, they could be killer, IMHO.
