The Standard

Jonathan103, 29.10.2013
I think the 14" Groove Hats have become the standard by which all other hats are judged.

Perfect for (almost) every kind of music - I always come back to them.

A beautiful piece of sound world

Schwank-Ulf, 31.12.2012
After almost 2 years with these hats I would like to say my opinion here:

Personally, I am more than satisfied. The money is well spent, the hats are sturdy, very well made, but that's not half as nice as their sound:

Subjectively, I simply love them, (almost) all others sound unbalanced in my ears.
Objectively, this can also be proven with the versatility of the sound - from rocky-snappy to funky, "groovy", to pop, balladig or silky, everything is out there. [Their sound tends toward HHX evolution hats.]

Purely tonally, no imbalance in the lower frequency range can be detected, but rather a pleasant, homogeneous fullness, a round hissing.

In the middle dominates a concise stick-talk and the necessary bite in the open state, while ...

in the upper range the overtones are also so dense yet unobtrusive and soft (but not too indirect), that in the studio almost infinite possibilities (style of play / style / mixing) arise.

The hats are great for "placing them anywhere in a mix" as they please, without sounding strange, sharp or unnatural.

Due to the robust construction in connection with the dense harmonics, a certain amount of force and volume naturally arises.

Live the HHX Groove Hats are in z.Bsp. Churches although needing care, but usable, could be nice musty sound (and still round) in need (with enough Moongel ...), develop their full sound potential, however, only if you can use them "normally".

The smacking is pleasantly short even in the quiet range and can be well dosed in length by variable foot pressure. A recommended basic volume, however, is mp and louder, but one has to say that the hats generally leave a lot of room in both directions in terms of dynamics.

Upwards, you can enjoy the dynamic times and really dark, because nasty things can be the same. That's why they may not yet have the sharpness and volume of z.Bsp. For example, Avedi's New Beat Hats bring a less sharp, fuller and, if you like, similarly punchy sound.

I would buy them again and again, they represent in my eyes, an above average good overall product and are ... (in my words :) perverse awesome.

Executive Summary:
° Natural abundance
° always a pleasant smack, dosed, never too dry & without slush
° large sound spectrum WITHOUT:
- gross imbalances
- tubes
- Stabbing / occasionally prominent overtones
° Extremely many applications, fast response
° large dynamic range, very differentiated operation
° Relatively robust> Also suitable for rocking style
° Sound is equally possible from soft to snappy
° My personal recommendation as a studio Hats
° meanwhile outrageously favorable price
° absolutely recommendable, grade 1

PS: I am very sure that there will be a Brilliant version (see description), but a dry finish will sound. In this case: my hats are a little more lively, but you can listen to them elsewhere. ;-)

Otherwise, there are relatively large differences within the hand hammered series.

I hope that will help you.

Greetings and goodbye
