collapse expand iconDescription

The MEINL Classics Custom Dark hi-hat cymbal pair delivers a crisp, articulate sound perfect for any genre. These hi-hats provide the control and nuance needed for intricate rhythms and solos.

Dark, Complex Tones

The dark, hand-hammered bronze gives these hi-hats a rich, multi-dimensional tone. Their complex overtones and long sustain allow you to achieve a wide range of sounds from sharp "chick" to sizzling washes of noise. Play lightly for a tight, rhythmic chick or dig in for a roar of dark, metallic fury.

Precise and Responsive

With their medium-thin weight and tight tolerances, these hi-hats offer precise control and lightning-fast response. Foot closes are tight and controlled. Stick articulation is crisp and immediate. You'll achieve rhythmic intricacy and textural subtlety with ease. The hi-hats open and close effortlessly, enabling rhythmic complexity and fluid transitions between open, closed and partially open sounds.

Versatile and Expressive

While ideal for rock, metal and fusion, these hi-hats have the dynamic range for any style. Play lightly for jazz, dig in for hard rock or get experimental. The dark, complex tone inspires creativity. Foot closes can provide an articulate pulse or splashy accent. With practice, you'll achieve an astounding variety of useful sounds. The musical inspiration will flow.

Roadworthy and Dependable

Like all MEINL cymbals, these hi-hats are individually handcrafted and stringently tested to ensure consistency and durability. Their medium-thin weight provides a balance of tone, control and resilience. You can unleash fury night after night without worry of breakage or performance issues. When premium tone and dependability matter, MEINL delivers.
