  • What Hi-Hats do you use?

    I have considered several hi-hat configurations. I started out with an old PD-5 but it was too noisy. I used a Yamaha PCY-60 for a while which worked pretty good. I am currently using a PD-7 but I don't really like it. It is fairly quiet with good stick action, but it is too small a target. I have Pintech TC cymbals and thought about using the Pintech hi-hats but I am not sure how to mount hi-hats on a cymbal boom arm. What do you guys use?

        I have the same problem as you. I keep changing. I was using a pd-7, but I now switched it out for a pd-9 for size. I am very happy with it, but still want to try the new V-hats.

                I agree with szvook. I too, have a Hart ecymbal II high hat. It has excellent stick response, and it looks like a real cymbal. It is loud though. I use mine at home, and I can't play late at night with it. So, I am currently working on ways to make it more quiet, or get a quieter pad for late night drumming. I will always use it for everything else, though.

                    Sounds like you've spent that much already on various alternatives so I can see your point. If you haven't tried a CY-12H yet (at length) do. Then you can better decided if its worth it to you. I preferred it over the others when I bought. I like it even more with time.

                      I completely understand where you're coming from. The roland V-Cymbals are very expensive. That's why I only bought the Hi-hat. I went with Hart and Visu-lite for the others. So far I've been very please with my decision.

                        Am I the only one here using Pintech cymbals? I have a 14" and a 16" crash and a 18" ride. They are not chokable but they look like real cymbals. They are very responsive and fairly ridgid so they feel pretty close to real. They have a rubber pad to keep down the stick noise. They are fairly inexpensive and would be perfect for home practice and gigs. I am thinking of trying the 12" for a hi-hat. I will clamp it down tight on a cymbal boom arm so it will not flop around when I play it.

                          Do you wing nut it down tight with extra washers so it doesn't wobble or play it loose?

                            I like the Pintech cymbals, but how the hell do you keep them from spinning. I have to move them at least twice during each song. Anyone use the Visu-lite China cymbal?
