Extremely versatile :)

Flodotz, 28.01.2013
Because of the price I as a student really hesitated (and saved: D), until I finally bought this hi-hat.

I spent the whole day in the shop and tried various models. I always notice that all Hi-hats always sound pretty good in a special way (eg with the foot, or strongly closed, or semi-open, or or). All of them had to make cuts in the other areas.

Thinner, more jazzy hi-hats sounded closed mostly pleasant, but the foot chick sound was somewhat lax. And openly they sounded too dark for me.
Thicker, more rocky Hi-Hats sounded half-full, mostly quite well and powerful. The foot chick was very pointed and annoying. Closed, then usually only a still faltering out.

After I found the Dark Energy Hi-Hat very good on the recordings on the Thomann and Paiste websites, I read them out of the warehouse ...

And that is in my opinion, the absolutely great at the Dark Energy Hi-Hat, which I could not find in any other.

- She always sounds good. No matter what you do with it ;-)

Foot chick is clear, not too quiet, not too nervous, just fits.
Closed it does not sound too pointed, but has already a pleasant "rushing".
Slightly opened, a full-bodied, tonally harmonious noise carpet results.
And more open, it is really powerful and enforceable.

It is really good to use in almost all styles.
From very discreet and soft pop to thrash thrash metal - everything goes!
For heavy Metal groove - passages it could be a bit thicker, so that it sounds even more controlled. But hey - that is complaining at the highest level ;-)

The price is really bitter, but I would buy it again immediately, since I am simply super-satisfied :)

Hi-hat of the highest level

José María W., 05.10.2012
Impressive couple of plates of manufacture to the highest level, and amazing sound.
With this pair of dishes you can play different styles with total guarantees of a tremendous sound.
Its hand-made finish allows us to find a multitude of nuances and textures, and the robustness of the alloy between the materials that make up these hi-hat supports the demands of almost any drummer.
The sound is warm and dark, very controlled and defined. Ideal for styles such as jazz, blues, or funk, but at the same time have an incredible punch, and a powerful sound when it is required, so they can also be used for more powerful styles like rock or hard -rock.
The precision and beautiful sound offered by this pair of hi-hat, makes them ideal dishes for use in recording studios.
In short, we are talking about a pair of hi-hat of the highest level. Perhaps the best on the market.
