    Default trying new hi-hat setup

    so after reading long and hard about ideas for hi-hats I decided to try using my 2 16" crash b8's
    one is damaged and has a chunk cut out of it so I'm using it as a bottom hat.
    I'l play a bit with it and let you know how it sounds, so far I like it

    I turned two 16" Sabian XS's crashes into hi-hats once.
    Definitely different but I loved the deep tones!
    I put them back to crashes after finding another pair of hi-hats in a cymbal bag lying in the corner haha

    Started out with A-Custom 14s, way too bright for me. Moved to New Beat 14s, much better chick and closed, but still too bright slosh and open. Now I've got an A-Custom 16 on the bottom with a Dream Bliss 16 on top. Decent chick, and slosh and open tones that I love. Heck, I may try 18s sometime. 😄
