Dream Hats

08.09.2016
After watching the promo adverts for this cymbal range, I was instantly attracted to them, and I'm even more impressed with these hats now that they're part of my lineup!

I have been playing these cymbals with some math rock bands, alongside a pop-ballad songwriter to find they work tremendously in two different musical environments. The versatility of the sound of the hats was the biggest appeal for me. The hats to my ears are dry and very responsive, without sounding 'choked'. The foot gives a nice subtle 'chick', where the open hat sounds unique but palatable. A foot splash keeps the uniqueness but with more attack and volume.

I love everything about the cymbals, from the weight difference between the pair, to the finishes. As mentioned before, the top hat finish is more alike the Byzance Vintage Pure finishes, it has that slighty raw look, but still beautiful cymbals.

Exactly what i want from hi-hats, a dream!

Oh yes. Oh yes indeed.

02.04.2015
I bought these after listening to a lot of demos on YouTube, including several featuring the man himself. Well. What a treat. These hi hats look and sound amazing. The top is quite golden in tone, quite raucous really. With Its big hammer marks it looks almost feral. The bottom cymbal is much heavier and more refined in texture. It has a silvery tone - somewhere between a cymbal and a bell. Benny Greb generally uses the word buttery when talking about these sand blasted cymbals. I think the word glassy is nearer the mark in this case.

With both cymbals there are quiite a spread of layered tones to be heard. I'm looking forward to really getting to know these cymbals and learning how to pull the different sounds from them at different volume levels. You can see in the videos how Benny does just that by using different parts of his sticks and also different 'attitudes' in the way he strikes them.

One immediate observation: they sound best on a sturdy, solid hi hat stand. They are so lively that anything lightweight tends to pick up their vibrations which can create some unwanted and rather nasty undertones.
