    depends on how heavy they are..hi-hats arent made for crashing..but maybe the bottom one would work.

    It depends on how it sounds, plain and simple. If it sounds good, you can use anything!

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    I imagine the top would sound better for crashing. As hi-hats typically aren't very large in diameter the thinner of the 2 would produce a better sound. I think the bottom, being so thick, would produce a sound closer to that of a trash can. But I could be wrong.
