Designed in the Sabian Vault with veteran jazz artist Jeff Hamilton, Hammertone delivers the uncompromising musicality of Jeff's legendary performances.
Crescent Hammertone Hi-Hat
Open sounding, the pair provides musical sizzle with more wash than typical hats – a result of their higher profile and lighter weight.
Foot sound is solid, without ever being heavy.
While it is a versatile pairing, they’re perfect for a jazz or big band set-up.
"With the Hammertone hi-hat, it is the shimmering, smacking sound when you step on it, which of course immediately suggests the well-worn basic hi-hat sound under a swing-ride pattern. When played closed, a slightly metallic overtone is noticeable in the background, but this is conveyed in the musical context. " - Ralf Mikolajczak
