Dark and Dreamy Hats
Even the drummers here at Sweetwater don't often get our hands on sandblasted hi-hats, which is why we were excited to give these Meinl 14" Byzance Vintage Sand Hi-hats a try, and boy, were we pleasantly surprised. The sound is dark, but not in a muddy way - more like biting into an exquisite piece of dark chocolate - with just the perfect amount of warmth to fold the sound into the mix. The imbalance between the top and bottom hats has an inherent funkiness that screams of fusion grooves or laid back reggae phrases, but would probably be a fun texture in pop and other more creative genres, too. It's easy to recommend these Byzance Vintage Sand hats.
