14-inch Hi-Hat Cymbal (Pair)
Get superior cymbal tone using these 14" Hi-Hat Cymbals from Monoprice!
This pair of 14" hi-hat cymbals is hand made from high-purity B20 bronze (80% copper, 20% tin). Because they are hand made, each cymbal is a unique instrument with a unique tone. However, they are designed to produce a modern, fast response with rapid decay.
PROS: Quality made using B20 bronze
Great closed and open sound (open is a bit trashy
AWESOME value compared to ANY starter intermediate "big name" cymbal maker
Looks good, very physically presentable if gigging (if you care)
CONS: Not for me, but some may find the the "shimmer" tone a bit bright for a B20 set
Silly as it sounds I wouldn't mind if the Monoprice logo were a bit bigger.
I feel these sound nice and bright and would work for any drummer.
PROS: full, bright sound. Nice sustain.
CONS: Cant think of any.
So, I was curious about the 14" Hi-hat set. I've been using a set of 13" Meinl HCS hats for the past 7 months, and for the price they're ok. But, for basically $20 more, I got these, and they're awesome!!

PROS: Cheap. Vast improvement over starter set cymbals. Look good.
CONS: Not the best sounding when open.
