The 14" Alpha Rock Hi-Hat Cymbals have a very bright, full, warm and clear sound. Wide range, very clear mix. Heavy, giving feel. Explosive, clear and open sound with a meaty and cutting chick. Very forceful, rich hi-hat for wide application in many musical genres.
Alpha Cymbals were first launched by Paiste in 1992. Since then, the Alpha Series has been highly successful on an international scale. Today, the Alpha brand is synonymous with dependability, and the cymbals are well-known for their first-class sound and fair prices. In 2006, Paiste presented a completely revamped Alpha, which advanced these trusted qualities and took Alpha cymbals to a new level.
In recent years, Paiste has invested heavily into the perfection of its high-tech processes, seeking to faithfully reproduce the principles of Swiss hand craftsmanship in its modern production facility in Germany. The updated Alpha hi-hat cymbals are manufactured using this top-notch technology. They are then enhanced using traditional hand hammering. The combination of hi-tech and traditional methods brings about never before realized quality levels in a highly efficient production environment. Alpha cymbals thus fulfill high demands in quality and function while taking into account the financial realities of today's active drummers.
Paiste designed the updated Alpha series specifically with the global demands of today's music in mind. Global music increasingly combines stylistic and cultural backgrounds into new musical forms, requiring cymbals with wider application range. By applying modern design concepts to the individual models including the Alpha Rock Hi-Hat Cymbal, Paiste has met these requirements convincingly. The assortment offers a wide choice of models and sizes, and covers a wide range of music styles. It allows the drummer an optimal variety of sounds in the cymbal set. Despite all of these improvements, the company is offering the new Alpha cymbals at unchanged retail prices.

Bought these hats as a second pair to have with my other kit and I love them. I was currently using a set of 14" Sabian AA Regular hats and these blow them right out of the water. They are brighter, more articulate and more musical and suprising versitile considering their weight, because they are a heavier hat. I always considered Zildjian New Beats to be the standard by which I judge hi hats and these hold their own against those just fine (in my own opinion). Now, I'm not about to tell you that they are going to sound better than some killer Zildjian K's or some Paiste Signatures, but what I will tell you is to go check them out. You may be pleasantly suprised. I was. For now, my Sabians are being demoted to my practice kit and the Alpha's are coming on the road with me.
