Formula 602

  • HI-HAT. Paiste Hi-hat cymbals are well known for their good sound characteristics. Particular care is taken to match them for sound at the final control. They are therefore delivered in matched pairs. During production of Hi-hat cymbals special attention has been paid to the fact that the sound of the two cymbals should mix well. The bottom cymbal is rather thick which gives the Hi-hat a bright sound. The top cymbal approximately corresponds to a MEDIUM, and responds easily to stick work. This combination gives you all the specific features that you expect from your Hi-hat. The cymbals are tuned in two different pitches. This matching gives a full clear sound. Generally, 14" Hi-hat cymbals are used, but 13" and 15" are also popular and very occasionally 12" and 16". (4)
