30th Anniversary is true works of art with different variations in massive hammer marks, lathing and color all enhance the sound. It also stand out with hand-shaped rugged-looking bell as its profiles curve gently down. These cymbals are uncannily similar to the vintage Turkish Ks that inspired them. Like their aged counterparts, they are instruments full of character and subtlety.
30th Anniversary Hi-Hat
Is exquisite - physically slight but beautifully voiced and hugely playable.
Endowed with an intoxicating degree of warmth and responsiveness.
Produces crisp yet dark and deep, tangy note when closed.
When opened up, the note broadens then dissolves into a smooth, fuzzy wash.
"Being so light and thin, the hats are endowed with an intoxicating degree of warmth and responsiveness. Closed, they give a deep, tangy note which is sheathed in gentle brightness. Opened up, the note broadens then dissolves into a smooth, fuzzy wash that had me hunting for hidden rivets. And stepping them kept us occupied for hours - literally. It's as though the sound they make is as soft and pliable as the hats themselves. The hats are exquisite - physically slight but beautifully voiced and hugely playable." - Adam Jones
"If you're in a playing situation that requires some real earthiness in your sound, you and these hi-hats may be well matched. They had the same stick sound and smoldering undertones as the rest of the line, plus the added midrange that's so important to a great hi-hat tone. Played with the pedal, they produced a solid and defined "chick." Played open or closed with sticks, their notes were wide and comfortable." - Colin Woodford
