Medium-weight hi-hats for fast, crisp responses and clean sticking.

Developed with Neil Peart of Rush, the Paragon series blends 2 styles of lathing for a very balanced cymbal tone. Pinpoint lathing creates a narrower groove for a fast, lively response on the top, while the traditional AA lathing creates a wider groove for a fuller, richer tone on the bottom side.

I just purchased these hi-hats today and I'm amazed. At the shop they sounded far better than any other hi-hats I tried out. -Beautiful tone and no trashy-sounding resonance -Have a gorgeous, classy vintage sound when opened and closed with the foot -Surprisingly great sounding when played partially open -In general they're quiet hats but have the potential to be loud and cut through the music if need be. -Look positively gorgeous I'm extremely pleased with my purchase of these and would recommend them to any drummer.

I bought the 13" paragon hats a while back because I got a great deal on them. I have them set up as secondary hi hats to my a customs. There's no comparison. The a customs are more musical, and sound far superior to my taste. With that said, the paragons are still decent cymbals for the right person. Someone who does hi hat playing along the lines of Stewart copleand would probably love these , but I don't play a whole lot on the hats and tend to really rely on my ride cymbals. Bottom line - not worth the money unless they really fit your playing style.

      Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Hi-Hats:

      I've used so many different types of hats over the last 20+ years of playing and these are the best hands down. Ive been disappointed with Meinl (tried at least 8 different types), Zildjian K/A customs aren't bad but still didn't hit what I wanted. Never been a fan of Paiste (I've tried from PST3 to signature series). When looking for cymbals, I always seem to go back to Sabian just because they (for me) can't be beat. The Paragon Hi-Hats are amazing sound and quality, but what do you expect when they are made with the best drummer currently? Only thing Ive ever used that sounds close to these were a set of Zildjian new beats back in the mid 90's that were as dirty as could be but sounded great too. Beyond that, haven't found anything close!

      The best hi hats I've ever heard

      Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Hi-Hats:

      I've been looking for a set of high end hi hats for 2 years. I've been disappointed by K series, but these make up for that! They are very crisp, have a great splash. My petal is terrible, but that doesn't has near as bad as an effect as every other hi hats I've tried. These hats chick better thank everything! You have control over what you want to play. These hats exceed versatile. I got the 13", and I was worried they were going to sound to weak, but you can do everything!

        bought the 13" because of recommendations from reviews, they sound great but I will have to try a few more to totally say they " ROCK " supreme, Sabian are quality plus products and are pricey on these particular items, but you get what you pay for with Sabian

        long lasting sound

        By sacklunchjunkie

        from HOUTEX

        Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Hi-Hats:

        I got these hats (14") right after the paragon line was released (maybe a couple of months or so... I use them for every show whether its blues, rock, punk, metal, etc. these hats cut through the mix, even after all of the smoky rooms and beer being thrown around.

        from Moline, IL

        Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Hi-Hats:

        Though Neil Peart is my favorite drummer, I am not one of those who buys cymbals just because his name is on them. I bought the 22" ride, and it is amazing. For crashes and splashes, I prefer a thinner cymbal, and I am sticking with my AA's. I own 14" Sabian Sizzle hats and 14" Paragon hats, and in my setup I play with the Paragon top, sizzle bottom (with the rivets removed). I have found that combo to have the best mix of stick definition, volume, sustain, and a nice "chick" when closed with my foot (which the 14" Paragons do not have when matched). With so many of the reviewers saying the 13" is better than the 14", I plan to buy the 13".

        Amazing hi-hats

        By rhythm companion

        from Birmingham, AL

        Comments about Sabian Neil Peart Paragon Hi-Hats:

        I have the 13" hi-hats and they are absolutely awesome. They sound very crisp, clear, and bright and have great sizzle when played barely open. The bell also sounds great when played open. They are such a pleasure to play that when I sit down to play them I'm usually stuck there a couple of hours.
