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.
"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
"All 30th Anniversary hi-hat models combine a versatile, traditional sound with a touch of modern trash, which is mainly due to the very thin top cymbals. The dry and short sustain when playing closed is striking. If you prefer a controlled sound with stick definition and a good dose of vintage character, you will be happy here. The 16-inch version in particular is very reminiscent of Steve Jordan's powerful, wide yet defined hi-hat sound. Due to the fact that the bottom cymbal is hardly heavier than the top cymbal, the chick sound is not particularly powerful. For some, it blends in unobtrusively into the sound, while for others it may lack assertiveness in a louder musical context." - Alex Hoffken
