Cheap Vs Expensive Hi-Hats

I own an inexpensive pair of Meinl 13″ HCS Hi-Hats, I just acquired a pair of Paiste 802 14″ Hi-Hats, and I also own Zildjian Quickbeats and Sabian HH Hi-Hats…both 14″….both expensive! I thought it would be interesting to compare them. The results were somewhat surprising. the bottom line is there are many hi-hat options at all different price points. I think you’d be very happy with a “mid-range” pair as you would with a super expensive pair!
