HHX brings out lows and complexity of tone, quick to speak and maintain quality at all dynamic levels.
HHX Click Hi-Hat
Combination of AA high-profile shape, HH and HHX hammering, fully lathed bottoms and partially lathed tops results in plenty of control and articulation – giving a distinct electronic click-track quality.
"Hybrid musical genres are exploding right now, and for drummers it can be tricky to find the right sound to convincingly convey electronic music with acoustic drums. HHX Click Hats boast a mercurial attitude without being too intense. They had a static-like sound, akin to being processed with some serious compression, plus a tight, distorted quality that didn't leave a lot of dynamic headroom. They're not ideal hi-hats for snaky, interloping grooves, but they would provide exemplary accompaniment for energetic, pulse-pounding rhythms. The Click Hats did, however, lend themselves to genres beyond the electronic spectrum. Woodshedding to the Ramones catalog and to lo-fi Black Keys-style soul-rock tunes was as fun and satisfying as playing along to techno-rock songs by Phoenix or the Faint." - David Clauro
"The 14" HHX Click hats have a dark and mellow closed sound. Similar to the ride though, the stick-tip response is distinct, and if you apply pressure with your foot the pitch raises way up so you can get some novel effects, while the pedalled 'chip' sound adds breadth and complexity." - Geoff Nicholls
"The attack is relatively sharp, but compact. A short, light hissing sound gives these hats a certain "white noise" character. The sustain is dark, compact and dry. A real "electronic sound feel" doesn't really want to set in, but the hi-hat has excellent stick articulation qualities and offers precise control when playing open and closed. You can control your hi-hat beats very precisely." - Ralf Mikolajczak
"Quite focused compact attack with a slight "white noise" character; dark, compact and dry short sustain." - Team
