"The 15" Dark Energy hats were a slightly louder and lower-pitched version of the 14" hats. But they were not so loud as to be uncontrollable, so they could still work in a low-volume setting if you prefer a lower pitch." - Rick Mattingly
"The 15" Dark Energy features the same pairing of a medium-thin top over an extra¬ heavy bottom. Both cymbals are loosely
lathed on top and mostly unlathed on bottom, and the entire surface of both sides is pocked with extensive pea-sized hammer marks.
The stick sound of the 15" Dark Energy hi-hats is super crisp and crunchy, and the foot chick is robust and chunky. The open sound has a deep and throaty sizzle that's reminiscent of a detuned breakbeat sample. Even though they're 15", these hi-hats are impressively responsive and articulate. If you like big hi-hats that have a strong and distinctive voice, these are some of the coolest sounding—and looking—around." - Michael Dawson
