hey, long time no show on this forum, feels good to be back I want to buy a new hi hat that will also get used for rec's, and was wondering what you guys recommend? I'm usually just leaving it slightly open so that it doesn't sound to dry, and I don't close/open it as I don't do any special rhythms with it Currently I have a Paiste Alpha metal, the obvious beginner mistake, its incredibly loud and wouldn't use it under no occasion actually, even live. Problem is, here (in China) I cannot try anything so I just plunged into it at that time as I got a good deal for the package (2 crashes, 1 ride and hat). I'm considering the Zildjian A Custom, but there are also 2 version (mastersound and normal), price is similar. Any recommendation?
