There's a lot to love about thin hi-hats: they're quick and responsive, and they keep their sustain in check so you can play rapid passages without all the hits bleeding together. But it's also possible to have too much of a good thing, and if you want to keep a bit of the added volume and sustain you'd get from heavier cymbals, a pair of these medium-thin hi-hat cymbals could be the way to go. They're light enough to be tight and focused, but they still have a bit of heft to them - and they come in lots of different varieties, so no matter how or what you like to play, it's safe to say you can find the hi-hats in this section to back up your personal style.
For an example of a hi-hat set that's on the exotic side, check out the Meinl Byzance Extra Dry Medium Thin Hi-Hat Cymbal Pair. Its traditional, hand-hammered top cymbal sounds as dark as it looks, and as a pair, they deliver a satisfying "chick" at any volume level. On the other hand, maybe you have a more "open" philosophy when it comes to your hi-hats? If that's the case, you might like the Paiste PST X Swiss Hi-Hats, the Sabian AA Sick Hats or the Meinl HCS Traditional Trash Stack Cymbal Pair. Thanks to the holes carved into one cymbal, these sets won't be slowed down by the air between them - which makes them some of the most aggressive hi-hats money can buy.
For any style of cymbal, the most important ingredient in creating the best sound is choice. That's because every drummer has his or her own idea of what makes the "best sound," and of course it depends on the musical genre and your personal playing style. So don't feel like you need the same medium-thin hi-hat cymbals as any other drummer: you have the freedom to choose exactly what works for your signature sound, and there are plenty of options here to help you find just that.
