"The 16" Masters Thin hi-hats comprise a thin top and a medium-thin bottom. They have a vintage-like feel that's softer than most contemporary hi-hats, and the stick sound is wide and airy. These cymbals had a very wide dynamic range. They responded well to different stroke types (tip, shoulder, etc.), producing smooth, warm sounds that had more high-end clarity than papery vintage hi-hats. Very few metallic overtones were present, which made them ideal for recording situations where heavier, brighter hi-hats often bleed into other mics on the drumkit. The Masters Thin hi-hats could be hit hard, either closed or open, without fear of them becoming overwhelming. The 16"s were perfect for midtempo tracks." - Michael Dawson
"The hats are paired with a thin top cymbal and a medium thin bottom and all three diameters will pitch bend when closed by applying pressure to the hi-hat pedal. Trading up to the 16" finds the depth of note at its most expansive. Superbly warm, rich and fuzzy, the hats are almost addictively playable. Despite their go-large-with-that size they remain wonderfully controllable - it’s clear why a fair few pocket players are making such diameter hats their go-to." - Adam Jones
