Great sound for the price

By Steve Monsen

from Hartford, WI

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Hi-Hats:

I traded a set of Zildjian ZBT's for these. And at this great price these hats sound great. I play on a church worship team, so we are doing mostly christian worship songs. I needed something that was bright and defined but also could be used at a quiet level. These Paiste hi hats deliver and don't disappoint. I also have a PST 5 16" fast crash, PST 5 10" splash and a Paiste Signature 20" ride. Paiste makes great sounding cymbals, even in the lower priced PST 5 line.

great hats

By Alec

from Englewood, Colorado

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Hi-Hats:

I've had these hi-hat cymbals for a year and i don't think they've ever bailed on me. Both the top and bottom hats have an amazing sound and they are great for any genre.

great, durable

By Jack Salvucci

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Hi-Hats:

I've had these cymbols for a while and they don't have any dents, make great sound, good weight, durable, and great for beginners. If you are having trouble deciding between these and others, don't look any farther. They're wonderful for the price. Recommended to anyone

So-So.

By Andrew

from Kent, WA

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Hi-Hats:

I will agree that for the price, you can't really find much better. But I was never incredibly satisfied with them. I'm on a pretty limited budget, so after debating between xs20's and these, picked up a pair. Granted, the value is unbeatable, but only if you're a starting drummer with little experience would I reccomend them. The med's seem pretty durable and can withstand hard playing. Various things I don't like... For the style I play, they aren't responsive enough and don't give off a very clean sound. Since I play lots of groove, I need something really responsive and fast, similar to Chad Smith. The closed sound is decent, a little to thick for my liking. If you play with your hats open often, I for sure wouldn't reccomend these because they're very dirty sounding while open. Just kinda sounds like metal on metal. Then again I may be expecting too much from a pair of $130 hi hats. My suggestion is if you're a beginner, intermediate, or drummer on a budget in need of a temporary fill-in, by all means, pick these up. Otherwise, I'd highly suggesting looking into some K's. Heavy price tag, but they'll get the job done in the studio and on the stage.

Excellent Hats

By Jayson M.

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Hi-Hats:

When my more expensive hats cracked and I bought these in a pinch, I was surprised at the great quality sound I got when I played live and in the recording studio. I would recommend these to beginners as well as advanced drummers. For the price you pay for the sound you get, this is a steal.

WOW!

By Matt

from Oregon

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Hi-Hats:

These are the best hats in the price range. They are very articulate, full, yet can be very delicate sounding at the same time. You can get tons of different tones and colors out of them. They're really great. Much more musical than Zildjian ZBT's or XHT's. Sabian XS20's sound really dull and boring when you put these next to them. Give them a try. They're good for newbies and intermediate players, or if your'e on a budget and want hats that sound just as good as ones costing twice as much. They're definately worth it.

Best Hat's ever used...

By Mikey G

from Valley Stream

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Hi-Hats:

First off, you cannt even look at the picture to see that beauty of these cymbals. They are 10 times more appealing then the picture. They have that perfect 'chick' sound & an even better open sound. I can only suggest that you go to your local music shops & listen to these hi hats. They can easily roll with the top lines of cymbals. You will not be disappointed.

Great!

By Spledge

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Hi-Hats:

These hi-hats are very good quality budget hats that are great for beginners and a phenomenal value overall. I replaced a set of 13" Zildjian ZBT's with 14" PST 5's and the difference is unbelievable. Granted, much of this difference comes from the especially low quality of the ZBT's. However, I am convinced that you cannot find better hats for such a low price. These play like they cost twice as much with a well defined chick and good crisp sound. They are also very good looking (as are all PST 5's). If you are looking for a low cost pair of hi-hats as your first pair or to replace a pair that you are not happy with the Paiste PST 5 medium hi-hats are the answer.

Great hi-hats

By Jeremy

from Ohio

Comments about Paiste PST 5 Medium Hi-Hats:

These hi-hats sound great, well worth the money. The pst 5 line is very high quality for half the price of many of the higher end cymbals. I have the 14" medium hats, 14" crash, and the 8" splash and I love them all. I plan on getting the ride and the china one of these days as well.
